Great Breakfast wanted near Mark Hopkins Intercontinental in Nob Hill

I have all of my restaurants picked out for this trip starting Thursday (Some new, some favorites). However, this time around I am staying at the Mark Hopkins Intercontinental in Nob Hill and would like some recommendations for a delicious and filling sit down breakfast spot for the morning I head back out of town. Since I will have to get to breakfast, eat, get back to the hotel, grab luggage and check out I want to make sure it is no more than about a half a mile from my hotel.

Breakfast is my favorite meal, so please do breakfast proud and give me some delicious choices!

  1. Not sure what day of the week you're heading out of town (starting Thursday, ending ?), but Olea is down the street from you and has wonderful breakfasts Friday-Sunday.

    1. You can get a very good breakfast at Miller's East Coast Deli on Polk Street, between Clay and Washington streets. Just down the hill 7 blocks and 2 blocks north--you can catch a bus back up the hill, right there on Clay. They are open at 8am.

      1. No one has mentioned Canteen?

        1. re: poser

          Canteen's website says closed Monday.

        2. I'm assuming you're asking for an American-style breakfast? If not, you could make the walk down the hill to Chinatown for dim sum.

          1. If you can go early, I would go to Farm:Table. It's super tiny but they have good coffee and food. It's a high quality, smaller portions kind of place (a touch expensive, too) However, if you don't mind paying a little more and having to deal with sharing the farm table seating - it's a few blocks away from you.
