Birthday Brunch in SF - Please Weigh In!

Group of ladies in their 20s are trying to pick a fun, tasty place for weekend brunch. The contenders are:

-Slow Club
-2223 Restaurant
-Universal Cafe

Which one should we choose??

  1. Wow, you named three of my favorite brunch spots! I'd lean towards 2223 because they take reservations.

    1. I 've only had dinner at 2223 Restaurant (aka No Name )

      I love the Universal Cafe food, they use fresh organic ingredients and I think the atmosphere is the best. Also, where else can you have a fresh pomegranate bellini! So that would be my choice.

      Slow Club has more variety on their menu... although every time I go there I order the burger- one of the best burgers in the city. I just find it a bit dark for brunch.

      1. How big is your group? I think 2223 can accommodate any size and has a nice brunch. Universal Cafe would provide a more funky and fun mood to the meal but can't really accommodate larger groups.

        1. re: singleguychef

          I have been to Universal Cafe with a group of 6-7

        2. There are 4 of us, and thanks so much for your feedback!

          1. If it's just four, my vote would be Universal Cafe before 2223. Both are good, but Universal, I think, is a bit more innovative in the dishes.
