Four New SF Brunches to Get You Out of Bed

Is it time to shake up your brunch routine? Isn't it always? Because hey, brunch is an official San Francisco sport. Here are four spots serving new-ish brunches around town.

Steak and Eggs to Reverse Your Hangover

It’s a classic American breakfast, hearkening back to the days of cowboys and ranch hands. And it’s no wonder. Steak and eggs are hearty and filling: that stick-to-your-ribs goodness that’ll keep you full and energized for long mornings on the range, or, in our case, picnicking in the park or nursing a hangover in bed.

Five Ways to Shake Up Your Weekend Brunch Routine

The harem-style feast at Pera

Tired of the same old egg-and-bacon plate, or pancakes, or omelet routine? This town definitely offers many tasty renditions of classic American breakfast items, but here are a few international ways to get something new in your weekend mix.

Seven Killer Brunch Waits That May Be Shorter This Weekend

With the Burners and Labor Day vacationers out of town over the next three days, it's going to be a dead city all three-day-weekend long. The upside? Less competition for brunch!

Hayes Valley's Two Sisters—More Than A Bar With Books

Hayes Valley's Two Sisters—More Than A Bar With Books

Although the name of Hayes Valley's new Two Sisters Bar and Books sounds like a place for solo drinkers to dig into a Hemmingway novel and a stiff martini, it's actually a spot you should go to for an impromptu bite with a few friends.

The 7 Best Brunches in Napa Valley

If you’re waking up to go wine tasting, odds are pretty good that you either need a solid brunch to soak up yesterday’s fun or something hearty to prepare you for a long day of wines and vines. Here are my picks for the seven best brunch spots in Napa Valley, broken down by specialty and experience:

Black Honey Launch at HELLO by Candystore Collective

The Last-Minute Guide to Mother's Day Brunch

Just because it only dawned on you 10 minutes ago that Mother's Day is Sunday, doesn't mean your love for her is any less. Not to mention, she'll never know if you reserve a table for brunch now (just tell her you wanted it to be a surprise). We called on your behalf and these restaruants all have tables still available.

Try brunch with a twist at Maverick. You can’t go wrong with the duck hash made with duck confit, russet potatoes, medjool dates, sunny side up eggs, mustard sauce and fresh picked herbs.

Praise the Lord and Pass the Biscuits at 1300's Gospel Brunch

While I may outwardly display all the trappings of a jaded city-dweller, I'm actually a native Southerner, and sometimes I miss being home. Sure, there aren't many concerts or plays to see, and the questions about my life in our fair city (a.k.a. Godless Heathenville) can get oppressive, but no one out here has nailed BBQ yet, nor do they share my passion for cornbread. So when I was invited to attend the new gospel brunch at 1300 on Fillmore, complete with Southern-inspired menu, I jumped at the chance. A hearty dose of spiritual music and mimosas would be a sure bet for curing my homesickness.
