If you love starting the day with a healthy dose of sugar, check out my latest round-up for Serious Eats: Sweets, featuring eight options for a sweet breakfast in San Diego. There are relatively healthy options, like my all-time favorite acai bowl in Ocean Beach, to dessert-for-breakfast items like a bananas foster waffle, topped with banana cream, toasted macadamia nuts, bananas foster sauce, and chocolate.

Options for cheap eats near the San Diego Convention Center (and Comic-Con) abound, if you know where to look. Most of the spots on 5th, right across from the SDCC aren’t worth your dining dollar, but there are a few gems right on the strip. If you go a little farther north, or east, that’s where you’ll really strike gold. Here are my top picks for cheap eats near the Convention Center (and in downtown SD, in general).
