    The green tea chai lattes are the absolute best! The mushroom eggs Benedict is the best savory morning treat and pair it with some French toast with lavender whipped cream. Totally worth the wait!

    Amazing brunch spot: my favorite in the city. Best on a weekday, when the queue is much shorter. On the weekend, expect an hour wait for a table. You can kill time by walking to nearby Dolores Park.

    For those meat lovers who think the the spinach and mushroom benedict may not cut it, I have 2 words for you - Truffle Oil. #yum A side of biscuits and gravy so good too!

    The New York Bagels @ Mission beach are to die for, as is any of Alan's homemade deserts. But sure to stop by for Pot Pie Tuesdays. The Seafood, Duck or Rabbit pies are decadent! Best maple bacon too! Read more

    This super-popular brunch spot always has at least one vegan entrée on the menu, and it's always stellar. Example: sweet potato-butternut squash hash with a spinach-mushroom-asparagus scramble. Woot!

    I've had brunch. A lot. This, is the best brunch on the planet. If they have the Lamb Bistro, that's your meal, but start off with the biscuits and gravy first. Wash down with a pomegranate mimosa.

    The eggs benedict here is sweet and earthy, with wild mushrooms, caramelized onions and spinach. We recommend adding the truffle Mornay sauce for those looking for a different and delicious twist. Read more

    The pastry chef is one of the best in SF. Amazing bagels, pies, croissants, cannales, etc. MBC serves the highlights from their famous weekend brunch menu during the week. Dinner is delish and cozy.

    The mushroom version of the classic Eggs Benedict is far and away the best I've ever had. I prefer it without the mornay because it brings out the freshness of the perfectly cooked poached egg.

    Fans of egg muffins will love the mission beach egg sandwich. Go for sausage sandwich w/ caramelized bacon on the side. Truffle fries are also killer. Plus they serve blue bottle. Need I say more?!

    Fantastic coffee. Great brunch menu. Order the Wild Mushroom & Truffle or Crab Eggs Benedict. Or get their gourmet hangover cure, The breakfast burger, that includes meat candy and smoked Gouda.

    Q: brunch menu til 2:30 on weekdays?! A: yes. get anything with bourbon maple syrup, a "huge" mimosa, and enjoy the pleasant service. (in my top 3 / def worth the wait...)

    Love MBC, but chose poorly today. Coffee--too acidic. Scramble of the day was overcooked and needed more fat in cooking. Next time, duck confit hash and green tea chai latte.

    I know the "I remember when" thing is cliche, but it's really gone downhill for brunch in the last 4 years. Food and service have both suffered a lot from too much volume. Not worth it anymore. :(

    Order the English muffin egg sandwich. It's delicate and the tomato is wonderful. Best, though, is the freshed baked muffin, which is light and fluffy with a perfect crispy crust.

    When brunching, parties of 3-4 are seated with far more ease that parties of 2. Get here early! The souffle pancakes were delish, and the chicken apple sausage was even better.

    Great place for grabbing a bite by yourself. Don't get a table for one, instead, wait and request to be seated at the bar facing the windows on Guerrero and enjoy people watching while you eat.
