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.

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.

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.
