    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.

    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

    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.

    So many great brunch options. So many eggs Benedict variants alone! Get 1 2 or 3 eggs depending how hungry you are!

    La Mer Benedict and gingerbread pancake with poached pear and lemon curd. It's a remarkable thing to be able to order your favorite and have it taste exactly the same for 25 years 😍

    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!

    Try to have one of the table outside with sun at 10.00am, no need to be on the list. Else be ready to wait for it ... nice service.Cream cheese on a toasted bagel and baguette 🥖 with jam and butter !

    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

    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.

    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

    For brunch, go early to write a name down because the wait can go up to 2-3 hours on weekends. Dinners are amazing and highly underrated. The menu is seasonal, but I get duck whenever they have it

    If you don’t wish to wait on the sidewalk,tell the host you’ll be grabbing a drink at Finnegan’s Wake and they’ll come get you when it’s time.

    Brunch on the back patio of Zazie is a bucket-list item, but if you’re a true local, you know your way around the bistro classics like cassoulet and beef bourguignonne. Read more

    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.

    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).

    Shared Florentine Benedict, crab Benedict , pancakes and french toast. Florentine was my favorite and the latte was the size of a soup bowl. Very enjoyable spot

    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.

    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.

    Love this place! Get the miracle pancakes for a treat, or the scrambled eggs with egg plant - delicious! Usually a wait for a table but worth it!

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

    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

    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.

    Very popular brunch spot - highly recommend the lemon ricotta pancakes and French toast (get there before 10:30). Also has an underrated dinner.

    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.
  • 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!

    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 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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    Pro tip for the cost-conscious: split Benedict and French toast between 3 people, portions are big enough if you get the 3-piece options. Add on sides as needed.

    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 :)

    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.

    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.
