  • Myriad

    If you're looking to expand your brunch repertoire beyond the same old bacon and eggs, turn to the globally inspired menu here. One standout item is the shakshuka, a popular dish in the Middle East, featuring Tunisian tomato-poached eggs with griddled green onion socca and served with savory chickpea pancakes for dipping. Creative brunch cocktails like the Sandbar, a delicate mix of Madeira, orange, grapefruit, pimento bitters and Prosecco, will get you out of your mimosa rut as well.

  • Belle Cora

    Sidewalk seating, bottomless mimosas, and classic brunch fare for under $15 — this new North Beach spot is thankfully filling the affordable, casual brunch void in the neighborhood. Expect classics like eggs Benedict, sharable French toast bites and corned beef hash, best enjoyed on the front patio for optimal people-watching.
