Breakfast out toward GG Park

Jewbacca Mar 3, 2009 08:03 PM

Heading out to GG Park Friday morning. Any suggestions for a good breakfast out that way (coming from East Bay, so anywhere good along the route from Downtown to GG Park is fine). Thanks!

    I have to second ML8000's Art's Cafe recommendation. Great little counter-only greasy spoon, that offers some unusual Korean-Am breakfast specials - e.g., Samurai Omelette (omelette stuffed with bulgogi) and a lovely vegetarian bi bim bap omelette. Art's also has fantastic pancakes and regular breakfast fare.

      I like Art's omelette with kimchi, tofu, and Korean sausage, with their sheet-like hash browns. Odd and delicious.

          For a large "stick-to-ribs" type breakfast, there is always the neighborhood-popular Pork Store on Height.

          Park Chow sounds interesting though. I never knew they were even open for breakfast, but I bet they would be good.

                Zazie in Cole Valley, french restaurant, great breakfast, poached eggs and scrambles are great I highly recommend, won't disappoint.

                Kate's Kitchen in the lower haight, funky casual, lots of food, basic home-style, honest breakfast.

                I've only been once but I've been wanting to get back to Modern Tea (just saw that they have closed-nevermind).

                  Arizmendi at 9th towards Irving for good morning pastries and breads.

                    Park Chow just south of the park makes a fantastic breakfast.

                      I have to second this. The breakfast is awesome here, and there's usually way less trouble getting seats than at somewhere in Cole Valley, at least on the weekends. (Zazie has an intolerable line outside on the weekends.)

                      Try the upstairs area near the fireplace. :-)

                        The OP is going on Friday morning, I wouldn't recommend Zazie on the weekends but at that time it will be fine.
