Updated: 30 November 2016
San Francisco now has more pop-up restaurants than any other city in the U.S. (sorry, New York!). Consequently, there is always somewhere new to eat in the city by the bay whether for dinner, lunch, breakfast, or more importantly, brunch. With so many promising options for chilaquiles, French toast, and eggs Benedict, how could you possibly choose just one? You don’t! Here are the top 5 pop-up brunches to add to your calendar this summer.

CHICA

Brought to you by craft and food pop-up enthusiast PopUpsters, CHICA will satisfy all of your Mexican-American cuisine needs. If you’re lucky, the menu will include CHICA’s signature Pibil & Hash or the Tres Leches Baked French Toast. Additionally, with an in-house DJ and bottomless mimosas, your Sunday mornings will never be the same.

Cease & Desist, 2331 Mission St., San Francisco, CA, +1 (415) 906-5571

Ante Meridian

Chef Anthony Yang is crafting a delectable brunch in the Mission District. The brunch, entitled Ante Meridian, is served in a mansion-turned-kitchen space called Naked Kitchen. Like many other pop-ups, Yang’s menu is highly dependent on what inspires him, as well as what local farmers promise to be the freshest of ingredients for the week.

Naked Kitchen, 945 Valencia St., San Francisco, CA, 94110

Soul Delicious

With a name like Soul Delicious, you can bet that this menu features southern-inspired cuisine. Be sure to order the Ultimate Breakfast Sandwich that’s made with ground maple pork belly and, of course, comes with crispy country-style home fries. Obviously, no Southern-inspired menu is complete without biscuits and gravy, so try The Uncle Brother’s Fried Chicken.

LookOut, 3600 16th St., San Francisco, CA, USA, +1 (415) 431-0306

Boogaloos

A more traditional menu can be found at the Haight’s Parada 22 brought to you by Boogaloos of Valencia St. Although the menu is clearly inspired by both Southern and Mexican cuisine, it is vegan- and vegetarian-friendly. Meat-free options vary from regular tofu to the ever-delicious soyrizo. Every Saturday and Sunday, vegetarians and meat-eaters alike can enjoy the lemon cornmeal pancakes or Boogaloos’ famous sourdough French toast.

Parada 22, 1805 Haight St., San Francisco, CA, USA, +1 (415) 750-1111
