Updated: 5 November 2016
Many people don’t venture out into the Outer Sunset district for several reasons—the biggest being that it seems far away and there’s not a lot to do there. On the contrary, while the Outer Sunset may not boast about all its great features like some other districts do, it still has plenty of things that make it a hidden gem in San Francisco. The Outer Sunset is home to many popular brunch locations, so check out our list of the 10 best.


Outerlands is by far the most talked about brunch location in the Outer Sunset, so much so that it usually has a pretty long line — however, it is definitely worth the wait. Outerlands serves new American food like homemade bread. Although the restaurant is normally quite crowded, it still has a cozy atmosphere. Breakfast is available as early as nine in the morning every day.

La Playa Taqueria

Opening at 8:00 am Friday through Sunday, La Playa Taqueria serves Mexican cuisine such as breakfast burritos. No one will argue that some of the best San Francisco burritos can be found in the Mission district, but when it comes to Outer Sunset, this is the best Mexican locale around. La Playa’s food is more than satisfying, offering large portion sizes for fair prices.
