Faboo brunch

This is among my favorite brunch places in the city. It’s in Washington Sq in North Beach, and it’s a cute place where you wait for a table, order your food in a cafeteria style-line where everything is prepped in plain view of all the diners (but looks great and very un-cafeteria-like), and then sit and wait for the delicious dishes to come. On top of difficult North Beach parking, everyone knows about this place and the lines are always long, so plan accordingly. That said, the portions are large, and very yummy! My favorites are the Monte Cristo sandwich (which they are known for) and the french bread creations: typical tasty choices as well as whatever tasty types they have that morning (brioche, bread with cinnamon swirls, etc etc). Tasty, moderately-priced, and not pretentious at all!

I love this place but getting parking and a table is such a pain that I rarely ever go. That being said, I don’t think that I’ve eaten better breakfast food anywhere else. The french toast with strawberries is so fluffy and scrumptious. Would go every week if I could get a table.

The best breakfast you ever had anywhere- you’ll lick your plate clean, I promise. If you go with a friend/lover/whatever, order a sweet dish to share- preferably the Chocolate French toast with berries (be sure to add the huckleberry jam on top). But make sure to have a snack before going, there is line. And if you see Cyrus, tell him I said Hello :)

Mind altering breakfast. Best in the city and frankly, the best American breakfast I’ve had anywhere. Highest recommendation. There’s always a line and it’s always worth the wait. They close at 3 so get there just before that on a sunday and it’s not too bad.

The Monte Cristo!!! Probably one of my favorite brunch places in SF. Wait is long & parking is a scarcity, but once a plate of breakfast is in front of you, you quickly forget the 1 hour long wait you just did. yummy place!

Long Wait, Cash Only, but good food

Hence the 4 stars, waiting 40 minutes with a toddler wasn't fun. The eggs and pancakes were yummy but for price not worth the wait, at least with kids in tow.

OK Brunch

I don't understand why people line up to go to this place. Maybe because there are no quality eateries in North Beach anymore. The food is ok at best. Invest some time and find yourself a better place if you're looking for truly…

NOT WORTH THE WAIT

Have you noticed that very few local San Franciscan's give this place anymore than 2 stars? \r \r It's because there are a HUNDRED places better than Mama's in San Francisco to go for french toast or breakfast. This place is over hyped and…

My Restaurant Rotation by meringham

Note: Mind altering breakfast. Best in the city and frankly, the best American breakfast I've had anywhere. Highest recommendation. There's always a line and it's always worth the wait. They close at 3 so get there just before that on a sunday and it's not too bad.

Dishes: chocolate french toast with huckleberry preserves

My Restaurant Rotation by HeelahSaleem

Note: This place made a pact with the devil. How they do what they do, I'll never figure out. Just know, that if you go there- it will be the best breakfast you ever had. But don't go starved, have a snack while you wait because there is a line. Yes, it's that good.

Dishes: Florentine eggs, Veggie Benedict, Chocolate French toast with berries (you have to try a savory dish with a sweet one, it's a must)

My Restaurant Rotation by WinstonLiaw

Note: bring friends who make good conversation, because you're going to be waiting a while to get a table

Dishes: eggs benedict w/ crab
