Need SF recommendations for Midwest Hounds cannot beat Sunday brunch at Canteen. But you got to get there at 8:00AM when they open, or you'll be waiting!

Where to buy a pound of coffee?

My wife and I visit SF yearly, start every morning at Cafe Roma........order
6 to 10 lbs of their Sicilian Gold maybe 4 times a year. Real it!

Lobster rolls in SF?

Anchor and Hopes service is spotty at best....but their lobster roll are wonderful!

Canteen: Still My Favorite Brunch

Always do their omelettes....last week I did the gruyere and asparagus omelette. Wifey had the blueberry french toast. OMG!


Whenever the bride and I hit SF we spend 2-3 hrs at Caffe Roma in North Beach, reading the paper, books, doing the xwords....lotsa room to spread out...good coffee....then head down the street to Bocadillos for a great breakfast!

Coffee at Canteen

I have had the coffee at Canteen...indeed it was rather mediocre, but that was the ONLY mediocre thing about Leary's brunch. Magnificent meal!
