4 Cravings, from Make-Your-Own Popover Kits to Trick Dog's New Menu

By

Schuyler Bailey is hungry. Here are her cravings this week.

Popovers at Cliff House Bistro

Crisp, golden outside; airy, eggy inside, and just begging for a hefty smear of butter and jam. Cliff House Bistro's popovers are as good (nay, better?) made in the comfort of your jammies with the take-home, fool-proof Popover Baking Mix. The best part for sloppy bakers? The more dilapidated they look, the better they taste. // 1090 Point Lobos (Sea Cliff), cliffhouse.com

Cappuccino and a Tartine at Petit Crenn

I used to call Hayes Valley home, and I so wish Petit Crenn had been there when I was. While lovely at night, the atmosphere in the daylight hours is positively serene. Avec cappuccino et tartine (whether it’s topped with salty smoked trout and capers or an egg and cheese) is a divine way to wile away an afternoon. // 609 Hayes St. (Hayes Valley), petitcrenn.com

Soft Scramble at Universal Cafe

I don’t mean to brag, but I make a mean scramble. And even with such high stakes, the soft scramble at Universal Cafe made my morning. Perfectly cooked, supple eggs cradle herbed goat cheese, brussels sprouts, and butternut squash (though I imagine anything seasonal they stick in there will be just as delicious) and are served alongside a slab of toast and greens. Brunch perfection. // 2814 19th St. (Mission), universalcafe.net

Elvis Sighting at Trick Dog

I’ve been on the wagon for longer than I’d care to admit (popping out a couple of babes will do that to a person), and Trick Dog’s new menu is making mama real thirsty. I’ll T.C.B. with the Elvis Sighting (bourbon, bananas foster liqueur, creme de menthe, bitters served over a big cube) just as soon as I’m off. // 3010 20th St. (Mission), trickdogbar.com
