You'll be able to smell the wafts of perfectly-cooked bacon at this Cole Valley hub from miles away. From flavored bacon sandwiches to cookies dipped in chocolate & coated in bacon bits, there's no way you can go wrong.
From the people behind HRD Coffee Shop, the Smokin Grill's a much-needed, not-pasta addition to North Beach, with spicy pork kimchi burritos (no, seriously), plus Mongolian beef cheesesteak and the everyday special of a sweet chili fried pork chop, because the sweet Left-Eye pork chop just waterfalls short.
With locally sourced, sustainable ingredients and sizes for every taste (from regular to "super baby"), this burrito joint can't be kept under wraps. Especially when filling options range from 100% grass fed carne asada, salmon, refried pinto beans, and chorizo, to vegetarian black beans.
A great neighborhood breakfast/brunch spot with an outdoor patio.
If you were convinced you couldn’t find good Mexican in North Beach, think again -- this hip eatery even gives Mission joints a run for their money. Served by a friendly staff, Mexican street eats dominate the menu, such as ceviche, tacos, and tamales, but the real show-stopper here is the whole lobster that's big enough for two. Dip it in heavenly cilantro garlic butter, then go to town creating absolutely decadent tacos with all the fixin's.
Come to The Grove for an assortment of healthy/guilty pleasures -- from super salad bowls to chunky, delicious cookies, they've got it all.
For reliably tasty burritos at a price that won’t make you roll your eyes, stop by Caramba in SoMa. Serving made-to-order breakfast burritos (and non-breakfast ones!) alongside fresh salsas, this is an excellent lunch option with speedy lines. For Southern Californians seeking a taste of home, Caramba offers a California burrito (translation: a burrito with French fries).
El Faro claims to be one of the originators of the Mission burrito – designated as such for its large size and use of rice – in the 1960s. These days they're not quite at the top of the Mission burrito hierarchy, but still reliable when you need a cheap, heavy payload of rice, beans and protein.
Café deStijl might seem far away being in Fisherman's Wharf, but their breakfast burritos make the trek worth it, thanks to the super-fluffy eggs, apple-smoked bacon or sausage, avocado, house-made salsa, and cheese that are all rolled up in a tortilla and then quickly grilled for perfect, melty goodness.
Thinkers Café is small Potrero Hill favorite with free Wi-Fi and an amazing, spicy breakfast burrito (with bacon).
This sweet Alamo Square cafe is famous for their breakfast burrito, filled with eggs, salsa, potatoes, and avocado (with the option to add chicken apple sausage). The cafe is also known to have a solid selection of beer on tap, and is a great spot to sit with your laptop and work.
