CHOW Veggie Burger

I've used gold beets and red lentils for this which gives it a less raw-meat appearance. Also, using fresh thyme the second time around was a huge bonus!

First time in SF and looking for some good breakfast spots.

Dottie's is great, especially their pastries. However, for a really spectacular breakfast, try Zazi's in Cole Valley (Cole X Carl). The N-Judah goes right through this intersection.

Excellent Egg's Benne w/ Salmon, the coffee is divine (unlike Kate's Kitchen--which has a good breakfast too). Another plus to Zazi's is their awesome pumpkin-ginger pancakes. Yumm!

Another good spot on the weekend for breakfast or brunch is Weird Fish in the Mission. Scrambles, Tofu options, Fish taco's, tasty beers, huge mimosas. I love this place! Seating can be tough.
