We here in San Francisco take our breakfast seriously. Whether it's a gourmet bagel to go, a luxury, Instagram-worthy toast or a plate full of eggs and bacon, the best breakfast in San Francisco is one that satisfies your taste buds as much as your hunger.
Weekends are for splurging on one of the city’s best brunch spots — some will wait an hour or more to enjoy one of San Francisco’s best options — but everyday mornings at these top breakfast spots mean a quick and hearty meal of fresh juices, baked goods, and lots more quality eye-openers. Branch out and try an Israeli-style breakfast or vegan option, including indugent eggplant bacon. Some of these spots even offer breakfast any time of day, allowing you to have pancakes for lunch, or an eggs bennie for dinner. That said, true morning meal diehards know that weekdays are the best times to go for breakfast, when crowds are usually thinner.
If your only breakfast requirement is a jolt of caffeine or carbs, try one of the city’s best coffee shops or one of the best bagels in San Francisco. Otherwise, grab a seat at one of these breakfast spots and fuel up for your day.
