I got baked in San Francisco FOODTRAVELBABE

Breakfast is a big thing in San Francisco. I’ve come up with a list of the best breakfast places that we’ve tried and tested during our trip. Enjoy!

Mr Holmes Bakehouse

We first came here for the ‘gram. But it turns out that they serve really delightful and creative pastries that won our stomach! Our favourites are Cruffin and Matcha Croissant. We could smell the fresh pastries coming out from the bakery that’s right behind the store. Service was breezy and friendly. Took tons of photos for the ‘gram. Nobody’s gonna judge you.

Anyway, be sure to order Cruffins!!
(Croissant and Muffin = Cruffins)

I’d love to try their doughnuts the next time!

We wanted to try Dottie’s True Blue Cafe but their snaking queue put us off. So happened that Homeskillet is around the corner and their queue looks doable with locals in the line. Can’t go wrong! We thought.

And we were right. Their food is traditional homey style. Simple and delicious. Just the way we like it.

This is also where I fell in love with Chai Latte. It gave me a fuzzy feeling throughout the breakfast.

I absolutely DIG their Eggs Benedict. The American food portion did not daunt me. I finished my breakfast without having to catch my breath.

French Toast is also our favourite breakfast choice at Homeskillet.

It comes with some really DELICIOUS bacon. What a great way to start the day!

Hours:  7.30am – 3pm Weekdays / 8am – 3pm Weekends
Address: 1001 Market St, 94103 San Francisco, CA, United States

Blue Bottle Coffee

We came here for breakfast without any eggpectations. But we knew that they serve really good coffee and according to Joanne (the coffee lover), their coffee is the best at Mint St.

We had Poached Eggs Toast and Avocado Toast here. It’s surprisingly small for an American cafe. Almost like French food. But I was impressed with their simple looking poached eggs toast. The eggs were perfectly poached and seasoned.

Blue Bottle Coffee is an upscale cafe chain originated from Oakland and has are many branches around the world. We recommend the one at Mint St in San Francisco.

Blue Bottle Coffee
Hours: 6:30 – 19:30 Daily
Address: 66 Mint St, San Francisco, CA, United States

Jane at Fillmore

OK. Technically, we came for an in between cos we were checking out other neighbourhoods in the morning. But it was never too late for breakfast at Jane’s. We had Tuna Melt that wassss sooo freakin’ GOOD. They’re known for their sandwiches. All their bread and pastries are freshly baked daily. We had iced coffee this time, so it wasn’t a good gauge for their coffee. Apparently, their coffee is great!

Jane at Fillmore
Hours: 7am – 6pm daily
Address: 2123 Fillmore Street, San Francisco, CA, United States

Honey Honey Cafe and Crepery

We came here on our last day in San Francisco. It was already 10.30am and I had no breakfast yet. I was the very, VERY HANGRY Asian waiting in line, ready to devour the people in front of me. I look totally different from my Instagram photo (where I was already appeased with delicious food. Heh!!)

They have a wide range of food on their menu.
We say, go for their pancakes and crepes!

Honey Honey Cafe and Crepery
Hours: 7.30am – 10pm daily
Address: 599 Post Street San Francisco, CA, United States

Our verdict: Homeskillet is our most FAV breakfast place in San Francisco so far.


Cos their food was homey, unpretentious, widely patronised by locals, and we’ve got simple yet delicious traditional American breakfast at its best. Great value.
