Brunch is a meal of passion. With fierce debates raging as to which SF restaurant’s brunch is best. Zazie elegantly steps to the forefront of the SF weekend morning meal scene, and seals the deal with delectable eggs benedict and a selection of mimosas, along with house specials like gingerbread pancakes, Challah French Toast, and incredible seasonal specialties.
Dogs are welcome at the sidewalk tables.
"Get a Benedict dish and have a friend get a pancake/french toast dish (I suggest the gingerbread pancakes) and split! They offer these dishes as 1, 2, or 3 options so makes it easy to share."
"Worth the wait! Great for vegetarians. "
"Get there early, sit on the patio and order the La Mer, Gingerbread pancakes, or go with the special. Amazing place - all brunch items are great!"
Bask in Cole Valley’s sunshine on Zazie’s back patio over a fine French-inspired brunch. Sip mimosas and restore spirits while recounting the weekend’s (mis)adventures, then head out for new ones in the Haight or Golden Gate Park.
Because of the sweet decor and tempting, double-sided menu, Zazie has become a quintessential destination for "ladies who brunch;" if you need more convincing, just check out the crowd waiting for a table on sunny Saturdays. A charmingly quaint garden patio dotted with yellow umbrellas tops off the Parisian feel, and thanks to strategically placed heaters, it's actually functional. Who can resist the lure of outdoor dining, even with San Francisco's stubborn temperatures?
Zazie makes its pancakes the old-fashioned way, with real butter, and real buttermilk. There are daily changing "miracle" pancakes, which flop with the kitchen's mood: from sour cream poppyseed to bread pudding and more. The menu's signature gingerbread rendition, topped with poached pears and a generous ooze of lemon curd are a Zazie original that won't do you wrong.
