We wanted to like this place a lot. Showed up 20 minutes before opening and put our name on the clipboard they leave outside before opening. We were seated quickly and given good service. But the flavors felt off to us - the sweet bun had a cloying citrus flavor and my wife's "Dutch pancake" had cooked apples that had... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our evening at Outerlands; the atmosphere, food, and service were all excellent. This restaurant is casual and relaxing, with a "woodsy" rustic decor. The bread was so exceptional that my husband asked for a second order (which could be a mistake if you want to have several more courses!). The waiter & kitchen staff were very accommodating...

I have heard a lot about this restaurant. When we arrived with our party of 7 at 10am, there was a 45 min wait on a Friday morning. 15 min later we checked it was a 40 min wait. As it was raining outside and cold, we were pretty excited to go in. We were seated at just past 11am.... More

We had heard good things about this cafe and made the trek from the other side of San Fran to get the much raved about dutch pancake. When we couldn't see it on the menu and asked our waitress about it she replied in quite a rude manner that "what you see on the menu is what you get". We... More

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
