Once home to surfers and families, the Outer Sunset has slowly turned into a destination neighborhood, thanks in part to the success of Outerlands. This neighborhood restaurant serves up seriously good food in a cozy, homey environment. The thick grilled cheese sandwiches are especially wonderful on a foggy, San Francisco day. Don’t forget to add an egg.

This co-operative bakery has been a neighborhood staple since it opened in 2000. While Arizmendi doesn’t have a traditional brunch menu, trust me, you won’t leave hungry. The scones alone are worth the wait, savory or sweet made with seasonal fruits. Dip that into a cup of Equator coffee, and you’ve got the perfect Saturday breakfast.
