This informal New American spot attracts brunch crowds & also serves market-driven lunch & dinner.- Google
"I had the soft scrambled eggs with oven roasted tomatoes."
"Great intimate brunch spot, but usually a long wait."

One of my favorite places to eat in the city! Right next to Mission Cliffs. You can watch them cook in the open kitchen, the staff is bomb, and the food ridiculously delicious (like it'll melt your face off delicious). 😱

Yet another tasty brunch spot in San Francisco. Be prepared for a bit of a wait. This is one of few spots with outdoor seating that also gets plenty of sun. Being situated in the mission/potrero helps too since the weather is usually the warmest of the whole city. If you are in love with breakfast sandwiches, then the House-Made Sourdough English Muffin is for you. The french toast is also a trademark of this restaurant and don't forget to get yourself a side order of the toasted banana bread.

Soft scrambled 🍳 for brunch. Holy moly they are good. I like sitting at the bar with a buddy, can be quite a wait for 2+.

Best brunch in the city. Seasonal daily menus with consistent solid execution. Can't go wrong but definitely try the coffee cake if it hasn't already run out.

Absolutely amazing for brunch. As with most good brunch spots these days, expect to wait a bit... Don't despair - this one's worth it.

Great brunch. There's usually a bit of a wait. However if you're flexible on where you want to sit - you can be in, in around 30 mins. Order the soft scramble. It's so satisfying. The Bloody Mary is made with sake and a bunch of awesome accoutrement. The polenta and shrimp is wildly decadent. But also delicious. The breakfast sandwich is yummy and a slightly elevated version of the breakfast classic. Comes with a refreshing little salad.

Good food and cool atmosphere. Limited gluten-free options.
