Sunday Brunch in the City
Looking for a new place for brunch. Don't want to wear jacket/tie for the Ritz. Been to the Mark (loved it but want something different). Been to plenty of great crepe restaurants but I want something more. Open to area and price...just give me suggestions! Thanks.
Brenda's French Soul Food on Polk at Eddy. 8 AM to 3 PM on weekends.
Not a high end location like the Ritz or Mark. Also no view like the Cliff House. But different and delicious. New Orleans French/Creole. Great beignets, nice egg plates.
It's a small place and the wait can be long, but it's worth a visit.
+1 for Brenda's.
I sent my friends to Moussy's Cafe a while ago and they reported back that they had a great brunch there. They do classic French bistro: eggs benedict, omelettes, quiche, and variations on croque-monsieurs.
Brenda's French Soul Food
652 Polk St, San Francisco, CA 94102
1345 Bush St, San Francisco, CA
Sutro's at the Cliff House has a nice lunch. The Terrace Room has Sunday Brunch but possibly not overseen by the same chef.
I have a feeling this isn't what you're thinking of, but here goes anyway.
dim sum brunch at Yank Sing (Rincon Center location)
Vietnamese coffee, cha gio, chicken pho at Turtle Tower
Moroccan at Cafe Zitouna
ala carte brunch at Canteen
Sunday brunch at Incanto (are they still doing it? their website makes no mention...)
A little more information is always helpful in getting a response. Open to area and price means the whole city and yet it's specific to different. What do you mean by different? Hippie/boho-ish? Cool, hip, scenesters?
If you do a search and read a little and mention a few that sound good to you, people will usually comment on the pluses and minuses of any place and then more recs pop-up.
Any way, here's the search for brunch in SF.
