    Boasting a long line daily (even on weekdays), moderately loud tones and a unique and delicious menu of brunch items, Mission Beach Cafe is a great sport to eat, people watch and experience local life

    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!

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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

    Fantastic brunch! A thirty minute wait on weekends. Order the French Toast or the Eggs Benedict! A very popular neighborhood eatery with a young crowd.

    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.

    Yum yum. This place is worth the wait! Their Blue Bottle lattes are amazing and their MBC heuvos with pulled pork is to die for! Not to mention their gigantic orange pom mimosas!

    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!
  • Aditya Vikram P.
    Have the Egg Benedict - Mushroom w/ spinach and caramelized onions dressed with Truffle sauce. It's divine! Of course, pair it with an awesome cup or two of cappuccino.

    Brunch may be packed but dinner was exquisite with virtually no wait. Vegan, gluten free, and carnivore friendly. Shoeshine cab is delicious. Brussels sprouts are unreal.

    A hidden gem in San Francisco. Their food and staff are amazing and they serve Blue Bottle coffee. I have tried almost everything on the menu and never have been disappointed.

    Pulled pork makes these Huevos Rancheros to die for. Served in a big bowl, the crunchy tortilla chips on top add a perfect final crisp to the saucy, meaty middle. Read more

    It's all about the bun at MBC which is a black pepper-potato roll. That, combined with the crunchy lettuce, carmelized onions, and gouda cheese keeps it simple but delicious. Read more

    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...)

    Amongst the most popular brunch place in the mission, get there before 11am to avoid the wait. It's so delicious though and the staff is really nice.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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?!
