Where to get 31 SF dishes your hangover desperately needs right now

Joe Starkey

It happens to the best of us. One drink turns into two turns into... well, more than two. And though you swore you weren't going to skip dinner and that you definitely were going to drink all of the water before bed, you probably didn't, and now you kind of want to die just a little. Instead of dying, though, just remember that a hangover is your free pass to eat all of the delicious, greasy, savory, sweet, indulgent food that you want.

Like these 31 things, all of which you can find in SF. And many of which likely can be ordered with a Bloody Mary.

Bacon Bacon

Ashbury Heights
Over-easy egg. Cheese. Brioche bun. Bacon jam. Bacon. Pro tip: the more adult beverages you enjoy at night, the better the breakfast sandwich tastes in the morning.

Happy Donuts

Noe Valley
Sometimes life calls for a perfectly classic glazed donut. And by "sometimes", we mean "right now". No seriously, someone please bring us a dozen of these.

4505 Burgers & BBQ

Western Addition
Crispy FRIED mac & cheese. With a hot dog inside. If only they'd had stuff like this when you were a kid...



Union Square
Fried chicken and waffles. Enough said.

The Elite Cafe

Lower Pac Heights
These deviled eggs are legendary for a reason.

Brenda's French Soul Food

What? There's no such thing as too much fried chicken.


Potrero Hill
It's not a hangover without eggs Benedict. Plow's lemony hollandaise makes 'em especially good.

The Cavalier

Eggs, bacon, bangers, roasted tomato, pullman... it's a breakfast fit for an Englishman, but tastes just as good going down if you're American.

Rose's Café

Cow Hollow
All you have to do to make a pizza into breakfast food is put an egg on it. Rose's just happens to do it better than everyone else.

La Urbana

Western Addition
Quesadillas with manchego, smoked habanero salsa, and creme? Si.

Tartine Bakery

The Mission
Morning, bun!



Cole Valley
Why get the Croque Monsieur when you can get the Croque Madame, which is the same ooey-gooey ham and Gruyere sandwich, only with a sunny-side egg on top?

Pinkie's Bakery

Apple fritter. No sharing allowed.


Western Addition
Ain't nothin' wrong with eating a burger for breakfast and don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

Mama Ji's

The Castro
Dumplings! Dumplings! Dumplings! Dumplings!

Jay's Cheesesteak

The Mission
Just 'cause we're not in Philly doesn't mean we shouldn't eat cheesesteaks. Can't go wrong with Jay's Original.

Wayfare Tavern

Financial District
Hand-cut potatoes, oxtail, roasted vegetable gravy, mozzarella curd... you'll be poutine this in your mouth at a rate no one wants to watch. (Sorry, we literally cannot help ourselves.)

Marina Submarine

Cow Hollow
It's the best sub sandwich in the city. Eat it.

Patxi's Pizza

Hayes Valley
Deep dish pizza with jalapeños. The waiting is the hardest part.

Wise Sons Jewish Delicatessen

The Mission
The Semite Sandwich is where it's at: crispy pastrami, Swiss, deli mustard, and a fried egg on griddled rye. 

Joe Starkey


Hayes Valley
Yup, it's a breakfast sandwich with a fried egg, maple-glazed bacon, cheddar, and jack, but on two donuts.

Daisy Barringer

The Melt

It's a grilled cheese... with mac & cheese AND bacon.

Pork Store Cafe

Upper Haight
Best hash browns in SF, hands down.


The Castro
Super-crispy Belgian fries with 11 different dipping sauces, including one that's top secret.



Russian Hill
Of all of the world's greatest inventions, Tot-chos is probably the best. It's a tater tot/nacho situation with melted cheese, jalapeños, black olives, pico de gallo, sour cream, and guac.

Rice Paper Scissors

The Mission
Texas French toast with coconut custard, coconut whipped cream, and fresh strawberries. And an adorable tea cup of maple syrup for you to dip it in (or dump on top of it).

Sweet Maple

Lower Pac Heights
This Millionaire's Bacon is extra thick and seasoned with red pepper flakes, black pepper, cayenne pepper, and dark brown sugar.

Trouble Coffee

Outer Sunset
This is the best cinnamon toast you will ever eat. Ever.

Fog City

Go ahead, dip that Southern fried chicken sandwich in ranch. They'll bring you more when you run out.

La Taqueria

The Mission
Voted the BEST burrito in America. 

Craftsman and Wolves

The Mission
The Rebel Within is a soft boiled egg inside a muffin that has sausage baked into it. Yuuuuuuuuup.
