Out and about in San Francisco‘s Sunset District and unsure where to brunch? Don’t worry, here at the Culture Trip, we’ve put together a list of all the best places so you’ll never be at a loss for ideas!


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.

Java Beach Cafe

For the neighbourhood’s surfers, head to Java Beach café neighbourhood mainstay since 1993. If you’re hungry for simple, well-made food, this is the place.  Bagels, big sandwiches, and excellent cinnamon bread. Bring your food outside to the patio to take in the smell of the ocean and the friendly locals.

Beachside Cafe

The sister café to Java Beach, Beachside is for those looking for more traditional brunch fare. Especially delicious is the fried egg sandwich, and the coffee, served in Mason jars, is no less shabby. And if you’re still hungry at the end of the meal, there is an assortment of gooey, fluffy pastries to choose from. Order at the counter at this casual weekend spot.

Trouble Coffee Co

Trouble Coffee Company claims to have started the city’s toast craze, and San Franciscans still line up for thick pieces of buttery bread. Particularly good is the cinnamon toast. Order up a thick slab and a cup of coffee, and sit outside in the wooded park.

For raw and vegan cuisine, check out Judaliscious, home to some of San Francisco’s most delicious smoothies. The Jungle Style Acai bowl is with blueberries, bananas, and a mix of seeds and granola is not be missed and pairs great with a coffee from Trouble!

For seriously good Mexican food head to Nopalito on ninth Street and Irving Street. The huevos de caja are served with creamy black beans and homemade salsa, and go great with sangria. See if you can snag one of the seats in the backyard patio.

Devil’s Teeth Baking Company

Although there’s little actual room to sit in Devil’s Teeth do not pass up this neighbourhood bakery. The breakfast sandwich comes on a flakey, buttery biscuit, and the granola has that perfect, not too sweet crunch. The lines get long early in the mornings, but it’s definitely worth the short wait.

Park Chow

For reliable breakfast, served in large portions, there’s no better place than Park Chow. This spot is big enough to accommodate large parties and has a variety of egg and griddle options. Plus, Park Chow is kid-friendly, with crayons, smoothies and a range of tasty treats.

Art’s Cafe

For hungover mornings when you just want a plate of eggs and hash browns, there’s no better spot than Art’s Cafe. This tiny sliver of a cafe serves of all-day breakfast and Korean barbecue, perfect for mornings after a long night out. There are fifteen omelet options plus burgers, Bi Bim Bop, and a killer egg sandwich. Don’t be fooled by its gritty appearance or counter-only seating, Art’s is a neighbourhood gem.

Arizmendi’s Bakery

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.
