Hoorah Cafe in Rancho Bernardo, San Diego

 I had an excellent breakfast at the Hoorah Cafe  in the Bernardo Center Plaza.  There is a self-serve coffee bar with nine types of coffee and a wide range of cream and milk substitutes, including oat milk.  I had the stuffed French toast.  This was the best I’ve ever had.  The bread was a light, crisp brioche and the crème patisserie filling wasn’t overly sweet.  The plate was loaded with fresh berries and banana slices.  It was great.  The menu is extensive and is a good mixture of sweet and savory dishes.  They are currently open for breakfast and lunch. The service was outstanding!  My server was Whitney.  Although the place was busy, I was seated, had ordered and received my food within 15 minutes.  The staff is very attentive and drinks were topped off promptly. This is a spacious place with indoor and outdoor seating.  There are plenty of tables that can accommodate large groups.  It is a good location for a party or business lunch.   The space used to be Mason’s Provisions.  T
