    A neighborhood favorite, Zazie serves up classic dishes, some having unique or modern twists/additions. The line can be long, so try to go during the week or put your name down before you want to eat.

    Delectable everything! Seriously. Split 3 meals amongst friends and it was to die for. We had the eggs florentine, lemon ricotta pancakes and banana pancakes. You can also build your own mimosas!

    This French cafe is pumping out takes on classic brunch items from a kitchen the size of a small kiddie pool. Go straight to the specials. Get a side pancake and to sit quickly swoop onto front tables

    buttermilk pancakes were bomb. eggs ben done any way, with home fries (really just roasted potatoes?) were delish. chai latte came in a cute bowl & served w almond milk. expect queues even on mondays

    You know you are near Zazie's by the crowd out front. There are numerous varieties of eggs benedict to choose from, sweet treats like griddle cakes, corn cakes, and flavored pancakes. Read more

    Get here before 11AM to get a table (rear patio is best), or sign up for a table, and be prepared to wait. Great eggs Benedict (esp the La Mer w/crab).

    The brunch lines here are truly absurd, but once you're facing a plate of gingerbread pancakes, eggs Benedict, and perfect home fries, the annoyance of the wait will recede. Read more

    St. Albert Benedict. Most perfectly cooked poached egg I've ever had. Love that you can order 1, 2, or 3 poached eggs or pancakes so you can try lots of dishes. Raspberry jam is the bomb.

    Zazie has a longstanding tradition as a brunch venue, with gingerbread or buttermilk pancakes a favorite. There's also a prix-fixe option, including one of the restaurant's decadent homemade desserts. Read more

    We got lucky and sat in the back patio. The Mexico eggs were delicious, and the gingerbread pancakes are a but cakes for my taste, but the lemon curd made up for that.

    Best. Brunch. Ever. Try the la mer eggs benedict--crabs and avocado with home fries 👌🏼Cute patio seating. You don't tip (rare) because they pay good wages. Prepare for a 30-60min wait on weekends.

    Though there are seven types of Benedict here, the Valence is the winner. Crispy english muffins are topped with roasted eggplant and smothered in a spicy tomato sauce. And the home fries are a must! Read more

    I've been travelling all around the world. Their tahitian french toast is best of the best. It is their own recipie. What is special with toast is its bread is cooked and shipped only to Zazie.

    Coffee cake was amazing as was the La Mer Eggs Benedict. There is a $1.25 benefits surcharge per person to provide full benefits for their staff!!! Love supporting those who support their employees.

    La mer Benedict (crab is sooo scrumptious!) and the lemon ricotta pancakes (complete w the most delectable lemon curd!). Worth the wait for brunch!

    So, get the miracle pancakes with a side of bacon or the Le Mer eggs (crab & avocado) - the bacon has nothing on Sweet Maple but the rest makes up for it.

    La Mer Benedict w crab and avocado was very good. Tahiti French toast w stuffed bananas and walnuts is rich. 10.30am arrival on a Sunday didn't have a wait for 2. Larger parties have longer waits.

    The two tables out front are first come, first serve. Snag one and eat your delicious eggs Benedict in the time it takes for other people to get seated

    Brunch here doesn't blow me away, but dinner is phenomenal. From French onion soup and moules marinières to duck leg cassoulet and rabbit fettuccine, everything is flavorful and perfectly executed.

    My favourite brunch in SF! Try the divorcee eggs benedict (avocado, fontina cheese and bacon) and wish to get a seating in the outdoor internal garden. No brunch reservations taken

    Great brunch! Outside tables are first-come, first-served. Definitely order scrambled eggs and a side of orange cinnamon batter or stuffed with caramelized bananas and walnuts french toast.

    The key is to split sweet and savory. Go with a friend and get one of each! On the sweet side, the Tahiti French Toast is great, but the Miracle Pancakes win hands down.
  • Beerblondie V.
    Always get the special pancake with the lemon curd. Flavors change seasonally, but always a winner. You can order just one. Also, you must order one of their many Benedict options. Enjoy!

    Literally everything is amazing here. But in the rare case that you can't order everything, get the griddle sampler platter and fontainbleau egg scramble with a glass of the pomegranate mimosa.

    Share the Griddle Flight with a group of friends to get a bite of each fluffy sweet offering. Lemon curd on pancake here is to die for!

    Hard to go wrong here. Poached eggs and any pancake is a great way to go. The lemon ricotta miracle pancake is my favorite! Hope to see it back sometime soon.

    Want to feel like you're in the movie 'Amelie' while eating a delicious French inspired breakfast? Go here but show up early or suffer the torment of waiting for up to an hour. Even on a Tuesday.

    My favorite brunch in the city with consistently amazing poached eggs (NEVER overcooked). Pro Tip: get chummy with Mario, the manager. He might help you avoid a portion of your 1+ hour wait.

    Poached eggs were good. Miracle pancake was to die for. A must order if on the specials. We had the bread pudding version.

    If you have a craving for pancakes, this is place to go! There's always a long line on the weekends for breakfast/brunch so come here early... or stop by during the week :)

    The La Mer Benedict (read: crab benedict) everyone is mentioning is on the specials menu, not the main menu with the rest of the poached egg dishes. Order it, it's pretty great.

    The cider pork chop is unreal. The Cru Pinot Central Valley was a great wine - the French wines were all a little off.

    Zazie is known for their tantalizing weekend morning menu. The Tahiti French Toast, stuffed with walnuts and caramelized bananas, will transport you to a tropical island. Read more

    Love the gingerbread pancake with lemon curd & mimosa with elderberry. If you could bring the Bloody Mary from Finnergan's and mix it with Zazie's you'll be in business.

    Keep an eye out for this sign. Front patio seats are first come first serve and can help cut down the long line!

    The french toast is 💯. I also liked the mexican scramble. Pro tip ask for salsa and you'll get a delicious green chile sauce that goes great with the scramble.

    "Curb-side" tables are first come first served! No need to put your name down - just grab a table! Saved us tons of time on a Sunday morning!

    In mood for sweet- French Toast is very tasty- banana-walnutty. Coffee drinks expensive (esp when use soymilk is +$1), but latte/mocha sizes huge. Long wait on w/e, but parties of 2 move pretty fast.

    Their bloodies aren't very good. The benedicts and the potatoes are fantastic. Spoiler alert: the potatoes have whole roasted garlic cloves. Super awesome.

    One of Fiona’s favorite brunch spots, Zazie is known for their perfect Hollandaise sauce and to-die-for potatoes. The potatoes are fried with whole cloves of garlic! Yum.

    come early for brunch! even at 850am there was a group of people forming a queue. gingerbread pancakes are nice and light, fluffy with just enough flavor. the pear sauce is a wonderful pairing.

    My favorite brunch spot. The hype is real, the lines are stuff of legends. Tahiti french toast is the best french toast I have had.
