Breakfast Alternative in SF Financial District?

I work at Maritime Plaza near Embarcadero and I am SO tired of breakfast at the Hyatt...and a BAD breakfast at that. Does anyone out there have any alternatives/suggestions for a good breakfast down here?

  1. I just recommended them for a completely different reason, but Órale Órale's got good huevos rancheros and omelettes.

    They open at 7. The place is ridiculously packed at lunch but usually empty at other times.

      A second for Orale Orale. How can anybody resist a breakfast burrito w/ chorizo?!

      Also, how about Sellers Markets at the corner of Front & Pine.

    2. I haven't tried it myself, but I've seen lots of good reports about the breakfast offerings at Boulette's Larder in the Ferry Building.

      1. Boulette's is a great place to begin the workday, but breakfast menu options are quite limited. Is it the Hyatt Regency that's growing old for you? The breakfast at the Park Hyatt is quite good, the room serene and the service gracious.

          I walked by the other day and noticed the Park Hyatt is now Le Meridien. Don't know what effect -- if any -- the rebranding has on its breakfast offerings.

          I should also mention that Acme has delicious pastries, both sweet and savory.

        2. I love Boulette's, the sausage and egg sandwich to go from Lulu petit's is pretty great too, Myth Cafe has some amazing donuts and coffee (maybe other items too . . .i've never gotten past the donuts), Canteen has probably the best breakfast but I'm not sure if that's too far for you

            Does Myth make their own donuts...if so, are they warm.?..I can't resist fresh fried dough!

          2. There is a great place called Grumpy's over on Vallejo east of Battery Used to go alot when I worked near there. Not too far from Maritime plaza.
