The Michelin-Rated Brunch Spot That Has San Diego Folks Lining Up For Hours

On weekends, there's fewer ways to treat yourself and the fam to a blissful day out than an amazing brunch restaurant. While the craze for the two-for-one meal continues to sweep the country, we're seeing the quality of those brunches jump too.


There are spots that have earned their Michelin stars that have begun offering brunch. In San Diego, there's also a spot solely dedicated to the meal that's gotten its own set of Michelin honors.


This is Morning Glory, who has been recognized by the Michelin Guide as a Bib Gourmand spot for brunch. The surreal space is a bizarre yet beautiful combination of rose gold tints, skulls and creepy eyes, and one of the most diverse brunch menus everywhere. It's also located, naturally, right where you would expect: in the heart of San Diego's Little Italy district.

Morning Glory is a sharp contrast to the other restaurants in Little Italy, attracting hours long lines, both for the vibes and for the grub. Everything is done to the T here, whether it be a punchy and savory breakfast fried rice, or unique twists like a Chicken Katsu Curry Benedict.

Of course, since we are in Little Italy, there's a twist on carbonara pasta too, complete with a poached egg and spicy Calabrian chili oil that is worthy of obsession.

Morning Glory doesn't take reservations, so be prepared for a bit of wait. In the meantime, there's plenty of Little Italy to explore before the Michelin-rated spot discombobulates your eyes and your tastebuds.
