After living in San Francisco for about 4 years, I can finally consider myself a bacon, mimosa, and overall brunch expert. I’ve tried a gazillion brunch spots in SF throughout the years, some terrible and some awesome, and have finally compiled a list of my 10 best brunch places in San Francisco! Here are my absolute faves!
1. Mission Rock Resort
There aren’t a ton of restaurants in the city right smack dab on the water. When I found out about Mission Rock Resort I was so excited that it’s right on the water and has….wait for it….. Chipotle Bacon Bloody Marys! They also have fresh oysters and bottomless mimosas. YUM!
Be prepared to wait in the longest line of your life to get into Mama’s. Mainly because the food is incredible and the restaurant is tiny. If you have the patience to wait in the line you’ll quite possibly have one of the best crab egg benedicts and homemade coffee cake you’ve ever had. Ever.
If you can, try and sit outside on their cute little patio. I love the patio’s ambiance almost as much as i love their selection of eggs benny. I always order the waffle sampler with my friends and we share some eggs benedict on the side.
If you’re looking for an old SF classic institution then this is your place. The restaurant is literally sitting over the ocean and they are set up somewhat like a diner. Make sure to get their homemade popovers with your meal!
I went here on a whim one day and fell in love. It’s located on Mason St. in a sketch part of town, but the food here was phenomenal! Especially if you’re into southern comfort food and chicken and waffles. My favorites are the hash and skillets.
