After a long week, there are very few things in life more enjoyable than a hearty Sunday brunch served with a refreshing morning cocktail. What can make this experience even more pleasant is if the cocktails are bottomless. Check out our guide to a few of San Francisco’s best boozy brunches.
Don Pisto’s is a hidden gem located in the sea of Italian restaurants in North Beach, San Francisco’s Little Italy neighborhood. It is the ideal venue for anyone craving a family-style Mexican meal, delicious drinks, and old-school hip-hop music. Start with the popular bottomless brunch and choose between all-you-can-drink mimosas or sangria. Be sure to try their unique twist on the traditional huevos rancheros Mexican breakfast. Diners looking to enjoy a lighter meal can choose between a variety of small plates, including fresh Mexican sashimi, two-taco dishes, and hamburgesa, a beef sandwich marinated in bacon and onions and served with guacamole.

Blackwood is a small venue in the Marina recognized for its chic decor and appetizing food. It blends the best of American and Thai cuisines together to create unique dishes perfect for Sunday brunch. Diners in the mood for American cuisine have a choice of various traditional breakfast egg entrees, salads, and sandwiches. Those craving Thai comfort food favor the noodle dishes and the stone pot, an assortment of fresh vegetables served in a steaming hot stone pot with a fried egg. Diners can enjoy bottomless mimosas for up to two hours every day.

Kitchen Story is a charming spot located in the city’s energetic Castro district. It is the ideal place to devour original and high-quality breakfast creations, along with bottomless mimosas made with fresh orange juice. A must-try fan favorite is the Millionaire’s Benedict, made with Millionaire’s bacon, asparagus, tomato and Meyer Lemon hollandaise. Diners with a sweet tooth should look no further – the mascarpone stuffed deep-fried French toast with maple-glazed walnut or caramelized bananas is guaranteed to satisfy any sugar craving.
The Sycamore serves a mouth-watering brunch menu and has a patio perfect for soaking up some California sun. Enjoy the Odwalla-made bottomless mimosas with a pork belly doughnut doused in maple syrup and Maker’s Mark glaze; or a lamb slider with caramelized onions, romesco aioli, and machego cheese. ‘Bottomless’ takes on its true meaning here – waiters magically appear and re-fill glasses before they are empty. The patio is packed on weekends, so plan to arrive before noon to grab a table, play some board games, and enjoy a delicious brunch outdoors.

Located in the Lower Haight, Uva Enoteca is a cozy and intimate wine bar serving delicious and authentic Italian cuisine. For a refreshing start to the day, order the endless Bellini special. Pair it with the truffled egg toast served with roasted Brussel sprouts or the meatball sandwich to create the perfect midday meal.
