This location will feature a drive-thru (visible at left in the above photo) as well a breakfast menu. There is plenty of seating inside as well as large outdoor patio in front. Check out their menu (including breakfast items) here. Breakfast will be available from 7am – 11am. Burgers, cooked fresh to order will take 8 – 10 minutes. More photos of the inside as well the outdoor patio area are available after the jump.

From their menu:

Super Duper’s breakfast sandwiches are made using farm-fresh organic eggs, cheddar, and your choice of bacon or sausage. For something sweet, we offer house-made donuts with either a sugar dusting or sugar glaze. Complete your breakfast with fresh-squeezed orange juice and artisan coffee from our friends at Four Barrel.

We make our donuts fresh each morning using a super-secret recipe and an old-fashioned donut machine. They come dressed in a dusting of cinnamon sugar, a sugar glaze or a chocolate glaze.

San Diego-based Puesto, the “Mexican artisan kitchen & bar” is coming to the Veranda shopping center this summer, right next to the IMAX movie theater. Check out their menu at one of their other locations here.

From their website:

Before Puesto, we had all left San Diego to chase ambitions in other ventures. Though we found individual success in other places, it was tacos that brought us back together and back to California —Chef Luisteen’s tacos, to be exact. His passion for completely re –defining the taco brought us back to our hometown of San Diego to start a family business, the taco stand we’d never even dreamed of. Now we’re tacoteurs and have never looked back.
