A long holiday weekend is a perfect time to indulge in eggs Benedict and bottomless mimosas. While there is no shortage of classic brunch spots in SF, why not skip the line at Zazie and try a new place? Here are three restaurants that have recently launched brunch.

Buffalo Theory

Polk Street’s brunch game has a new player. Buffalo Theory, the bustling craft-beer focused restaurant with Filipino influences, is now serving Sunday brunch. Enjoy an assortment of breakfast items from chef Lawrence Lee. He’s whipping up congee, a dish that features a 63-degree egg, fried garlic, smoked bean curd, sesame oil, dark soy, ginger and scallions and a hangover hash with sisig pork medley, eggs, cheese, and Filipino pandesal rolls. On the more traditional side of brunch, there’s fried chicken and waffles, biscuits and gravy, and granola with berries. Beverage director Janna Cruz has curated a list of proper brunch liquids: Ritual coffee, Numi tea, mimosas, and a signature cocktail, Fruli Strawberry Beermosa.

The Snug

The Snug is a relatively new watering hole that’s quickly become one of Fillmore Street’s hottest spots for evening drinks. Now, with its weekend brunch, it’s become a great place for day drinking, too. Brunch is served Saturday and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. With something for every dietary need, chef Brian Shin has come up with a menu that is filled with crowd-pleasing favorites. There’s French toast, classic eggs Benedict, a breakfast burger, and smoked avocado toast. Bar director Jacob Racusin is killing it with the cocktails—his drinks are inventive, potent, and delicious. Order a traditional Bloody Mary, a brown buttered coffee with bourbon and amaro cream, or a raspberry gin fizz. Cheers!

Comstock Saloon

Ok, so this brunch you’ve got to wait for. Comstock Saloon, a North Beach establishment, is launching its new brunch on Saturday, June 9. The menu will be available every weekend from 11:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Chef Jason Raffin’s brunch menu doesn’t take itself to seriously—it’s filled with creative and fun dishes. Think breakfast poutine with house-made sausage and scrambled eggs, tres leeches French toast with compressed strawberries, and herbed falafel shakshuka with truffled tomato sauce. Highlights from the brunch beverages include a bacon Old-Fashioned and a Ramos Gin Fizz.
