From the article by James Chute, found here: http://www.utsandiego.com/news/2014/aug/25/north-park-artists/
[...] By any measure, North Park’s revitalization has been a huge success, with the community’s core business district, extending outward from University Avenue and 30th Street, transforming itself into what Forbes Magazine recently called one of America’s “hippest hipster neighborhoods.”
But one of the key elements that gives North Park its cachet is its artists, who started taking advantage of the neighborhood’s affordable spaces in the ’90s. And they’ve contributed considerably more than cachet — whether it’s Lynn Susholtz’s Art Produce Gallery, which transformed itself into something resembling a community center as much as an art gallery, or David White’s Agitprop Space, which regularly hosted innovative, community-based projects, including “There Goes the Neighborhood.” [...]

USA Today’s 10 Best names North Park’s THE MISSION as one of the top brunch spots in San Diego
From the article found here:
"This is one place where waiting for a table proves worthwhile – The Mission is the local favorite for hearty, unusual breakfasts and lunches. Fill up on Chino-Latino and American dishes like the Zen Breakfast (scrambled egg whites, braised tofu, brown rice, and lightly grilled veggies), the Desayuno Burrito (tortilla filled with potatoes, eggs, cheese, beans, and chipotle cream), strawberry-granola pancakes, and roast beef hash and eggs. Great coffee; wonderful quesadillas, wraps and tacos for lunch. Prices are reasonable and portions are huge with some saying a stack of pancakes can feed multiple people. The Mission is also very kid-friendly."
