Breakfast places in or around Union Square area

I’ll be in a hotel (Westin St. Francis) in the Union Square area all next week. I love breakfast, but I don’t love the high prices hotels charge for breakfast. I’m interested in recommendations for places that serve early breakfasts in or around the Union Square area. Thanks in advance!

  1. Sears is a very popular place been around forever lots of tourist, locals go but sure to get pounded on these boards. Its a half a block away from the westin. Its inexpensive, full bar.Lefty O'douls across the street on geary. Dotties true blue cafe a few blocks away on Jones in very popular. There are several other places within a block of the westin.

      Thanks a lot for this info. It is exactly what i'm looking for. Dottie's sounds great!

        Dottie's is far and away the best choice, but be warned that it's small and hugely popular, and the lines can start as early as 8 AM on weekends.

        If it's a weekend, another great option is Dennis Leary's Canteen, on Sutter near Taylor. Lots of intriguing high-end brunch options at medium-end prices from a truly great chef who loves his small dives.
