The eggs Benedict that makes everyone line up on the weekend at Mission Beach Cafe. Yelp photo by Hasaney S.
We have been waiting to hear from Bill Clarke of ~MISSION BEACH CAFE~ about his plans for the former Luna Park space, and a tablehopper reader just forwarded a letter sent to people in the neighborhood. It’s going to be called ~MISSION BEACH VALENCIA~, and they plan to offer a similar style of food to MBC, but with different menus.
One fun option: they will be serving brunch until very late at night, like 1am. So yes, it sounds like you’ll be able to get Mission Beach Cafe’s famed eggs Benedict on a housemade English muffin (with crab or bay shrimp or mushrooms) until laaaaate. There will also be a full bar, so expect some cocktails too—which will help drive the need for that late-night brunch. We’ll keep you posted as we hear more. 694 Valencia St. at 17th St.
