Many fine restaurants seem to have dishes that are very similar. They're all delicious, but they are very much the same. Finding a menu with a new taste combination seems rare, but you can find it at Outerlands in San Francisco. Not one item on their brunch menu looked like anything else: eggs-in-jail; jasmine rice porridge with butternut squash and... More

A surprising place to go for breakfast and very popular with the local crowd. Get there early and make sure you sign up at the board. Good food and interesting spins on breakfast, eggs and they make great bread.

We planned to go here on a Sturday but when we arrived the line-up was long. So, we went across the street to the Sea Breeze (also rated). We went back the next day because we walked out of the Beach Chalet Brewery & Restaurant (also rated). The line up was agin long but we decided to wait it out.... More

Great breakfast in a cute part of Outer Sunset. Eggs-In-Jail is definitely the exhibitionist of the brunch menu: a perfect fried egg housed inside a thick slab of homemade bread, topped with bacon and arugula (go ahead and swing for extra avocado). You can expect up to an hour's wait at the weekend, but Trouble Coffee Company just a few... More

I dined at Outerlands this past Saturday for brunch. My friend & I arrived there around noon & waited almost two hours for our name to be called. Given the popularity of this place we expected a long wait but every time we asked the host if it would be much longer they were short with us & told us... More

The look of the restaurant is great, but the food and service were lacking. The food was uninspiring, and the servers totally acted as if they wished you would just leave. Would rather spend my money elsewhere.

This was my third time to Outerlands, I discovered this restaurant before a review in Sunset magazine made it semi-impossible to get into, but make a reservation in advance and savor the experience. Everything here is wonderful: the staff, the drinks, the food, and the bread...oh my, the bread. We are a gluten-intolerant family and we throw that right out... More
