Best Friday and Saturday breakfast places
Ellas on Presidio and California is good- look for interesting omelettes and potato scrambles and housemade bread. Elite Square Cafe is a lovely spot with delectable mini biscuits and strawberry butter from the old days. Their Bloody Marys are pretty dynamite. 1300 on Fillmore- more dressy, but such a treat! We enjoyed shrimp and grits and delicious Bellinis. For more of a casual vibe on the Cajun, check out Brenda's on Polk. There will be a long line if you don't get there early, but the grits, crawfish beignets and coffee are worth the wait. If you're into French Toast, Mama's in Washington Square Park is a good standard.
