Le Marais churns out phenomenal croissants, granola, and Stumptown coffee starting at 7am, and serves the best French pastries in the city. The breakfast board mix and match option is pretty wonderful (since you can get a little granola, an egg, smoked salmon, and your pick of pastries). Just avoid the avocado “toast” - it’s an avocado on a croissant, which is silly - and brace yourself to be treated as an inconvenience at best. Tres French.

Causwells is a much-needed brunch spot in the Marina, that works well any time of day. Especially since the burger is always on the menu.
Palette Tea House
The great dim sum at Palette Tea House gives us a good reason to go to Ghirardelli Square.
Stop by Radhaus after a long day in Fort Mason for some Belgian beers and German food like bratwurst and schnitzel.

Jane on Fillmore
Food for the Lululemon crowd, and for us too. Jane on Fillmore finely toes the line between healthy and delicious. If only they were open for dinner.
Nook is a solidly on-price, reliable neighborhood hang in Russian Hill. Even if they do weird things with granola.
