Breakfasts now that Canteen is no longer offering any.

Fog City Diner?
What else?
I understand Sears is overrated and touristy.

      Sadly, that site is not up to date.
      Diners, diners, my kingdom for a good diner!

        The second half of that topic is from January. Not much change in the SF breakfast scene since then.

    2. on a recent visit, i enjoyed a terrific breakfast at plow. sat at the counter and watched the dance of the line cooks, which really enhanced my experience. my dungeness crab omelette was heavenly.

      1. now I'm really happy that I had my birthday breakfast at Canteen in July.

        default now to Bistro Central Parc for brunch on Saturday and Sunday 9 am to 3 pm
        for Frisée aux lardons, Eggs Benedict or Salmon Benedict, or the French Toast

        560 Central Avenue
        at Grove Street
        San Francisco CA 94117

          Cynsa: How far is Bistro Central Parc from Union Square? Is there a cable car to go there?

          1. re: arepo

            it's in the Panhandle area.

            no cable car. closest bus lines are 5-Fulton or 21-Hayes

        2. If you want to eat in Union Square, I highly recommend the brunch at Colibri. It's an upper-scale Mexican restaurant (not taqueria) with yummy moles, homemade tortillas, guac made to order and the best tortilla soup I've ever had. Great for any meal and great happy hour, too.

          1. whaty aint they serfving bfast anymore ?

                Maybe because you can get a subpar diner breakfast just about anywhere and they weren't bothering to rise above that level.

                Serving pasteurized fake orange juice from the big bulk supermarket jugs, in a city where people are going out of their way to offer organic, fresh, or just quality in a supposed fine dining setting, was the giveaway their heart's weren't into it.
