SF loves brunch. Long lines of loyalists flock to their favorites. But maybe you want to keep it simple and grab something to go on the way to a park or the beach... or even head straight back home for breakfast in bed. Here's a few breakfasts on the go that still taste amazing.
Curry puffs and Japanese breakfasts on weekends are lined up next to dreamy baked goods and sold out dinners in this darling Outer Richmond cafe beloved by the neighborhood. Just a mile from the ocean, grab a truffle
chorizo hash bowl, coffee and peanut butter cookies and head to the beach for a beach.
What's better than an over easy egg, bacon, cheddar breakfast sandwich on toasted brioche, slathered in bacon jam? Not much, unless it's Bacon Bacon's grilled cheese sandwich made perfect with bacon and bacon jam. From their cozy little Haight-Ashbury shop, it's a happy grab 'n go to take to nearby Golden Gate Park or the Panhandle for a picnic breakfast/lunch.
Jane is the ever-mobbed, beloved cafe of Upper Fillmore. The chic, narrow cafe in black & whites serves Stumptown Coffee, baby biscuits, kale/spinach smoothies and housemade granola for breakfasts, along with their changing array of baked goods.
Sweet bread pudding may be a guilty breakfast or dessert, but it's a guilt you'll gladly take on if it means moist cookies 'n cream bread pudding topped with Oreo's or sea salt crumbled over salted caramel bread pudding.
Fine dining pastry chef Belinda Leong recently opened her chic patisserie which often sells out early of its beauteous baked goods, particularly flaky kouign amann or daily changing viennoiserie (croissants, brioche, pain au chocolat, and the like).
Ok, maybe Shorty Goldstein's isn't exactly quick with that perpetual line out the door. But that's because aside from being THE Jewish deli downtown, everyone's catching on to those whipped potato, melt-in-your-mouth potato knishes, matzah brei, cheese blintzes and egg creams.
