Good SF Brunch

Have some friends coming into town and looking for a spot to have brunch on Saturday. Looking for Potrero Hill, Noe, Bernal, Dogpatch, out to Hunters Point----something other than Sally's, Pizzanostre, Chloe's, Toast, Just for You, Chez Maman, Aperto...

    Serpentine is fantastic for brunch - their red fennel hash is a must order.

    Not quite in the neighborhoods you mentioned but Foreign Cinema is my favorite brunch spot in the city - I actually brought four friends from out of town there last Saturday.

      I second Foreign Cinema, put if you want to stay in the areas you mentioned, what about Pomelo?

        You could try Universal Cafe or Slow Club or for rustic hippie yacht club, there's the Ramp.

          I really like Fattoush for lunch and dinner, and I hear their brunch is quite good. The brunch menu is far less Lebanese / Middle Eastern than you might expect.

          Another place that's been on my breakfast / brunck radar is Pastores. I hear lots of good reports. The only problem is they have pretty flaky hours and always seem to be closed when I want to go.

            I like The Butler and the Chef on South Park for charm and French standards.

              A favorite of mine is Axis in Potrero. The food is fantastic, but the service is slow. If you go, be ready for a leisurely brunch.
