About Bay Area Brunch

Brunch according to Wikipedia:

Brunch is a combination of breakfast and lunch.  Typically brunch is had at between 11 am and 1 pm, close to lunch time but still before.  The meal usually involves standard breakfast foods such as eggs, sausages, bacon, ham, fruits, pastries, pancakes, and the like.  However, it can include almost any other type of food served throughout the day.  Mimosas, Ramos gin fizzes, brandy milk punches, Bellinis, and bloody marys are popular brunch cocktails.  Often, however, the term brunch is headed more towards breakfast than lunch.

The dim sum brunch is a popular meal in Chinese restaurants worldwide.  It consists of a wide variety of stuffed bao (buns), dumplings, and other savory or sweet food items which have been steamed, deep-fried, or baked. Customers select small portions from passing carts, as the kitchen continuously produces and sends out more freshly-prepared dishes. Dim sum is usually eaten as a mid-morning, midday, or mid-afternoon teatime.

Brunch according to ME:

Sleep in, stuff yourself with your favorite breakfast foods, and sleep off that food coma.  WIN-WIN.

San Francisco is one of my favorite cities in the world and where we call home. We love nothing more than breaking bread (or pancakes?) in divey joints, chi-chi places, and everything in between.  I am partial to breakfast burritos, J loves nothing more than a big pile of corned beef hash, and we love our coffee.

Come along for the ride.  And let us know if you have a favorite brunch spot or dish we should try!
