For some reason bottomless brunch isn’t such a thing in San Francisco. People are mostly doing healthy things like hiking or biking, or they’re being classy and just having one mimosa with their eggs. Great for those people. If you do want to spend your weekends in a more celebratory manner, we’ve got some ideas for you.
Are these the most gourmet or glamorous spots in the city? Nope. Are they farm to table? Doubtful. Will they serve you unlimited champagne beverages? Absolutely. Will you be happy after six mimosas? You betcha.
Don Pisto’s is our favorite bottomless brunch around. It’s fun and loud and the sangria and wine-based margaritas are dangerously strong. Free chips are great, the tacos are great, and the huevos rancheros are extra great. Also great - reservations. Because once you mention bottomless brunch on the group text, you’re going to get a lot of takers.
The Deal: $21 for 90 minutes of bottomless sangria, margaritas or mimosas.
The only thing better than all you can eat dim sum? All you can drink cocktails to go with it. Both can be had at Chubby Noodle’s Marina and North Beach locations, although there’s a 90-minute limit, so you’re probably not going to be dancing on tables by the end of it. (No, that’s not a challenge.) But after multiple rounds of salt and pepper shrimp and mimosas, you’re still likely to need a nap come 3pm.
The Deal: $37 for all you can eat dim sum and brunch drinks. 90-minute limit.
The main draw of Sweet Maple is the ‘millionaire’s bacon’. It’s sweet and spicy, and if we were millionaires, we would have an entire room in our mansion dedicated to this bacon. Everything else here is pretty standard breakfast food, but the brunch drinks include beermosas and grapefruit mimosas and for that we are very grateful.
The Deal: $20 for bottomless mimosas (one flavor only). Two-hour limit.
Since you may want to eat a lot of hearty things while you drink your bottomless mimosas (especially when there is no time limit on said mimosas), The Sycamore’s got your back. Skip the breakfast sliders and go for the absurd but tasty chicken and waffles. The waffles are stuffed with cheese and prosciutto, and while it might be completely unnecessary, you’re going to love them when you’re three mimosas in. Be warned, with no time limit, things at The Sycamore can get rowdy faster than you can say “chicken and cheesy waffles don’t really go with mimosas.”
The Deal: $12 bottomless mimosas with $8 food order. No time limit specified. Watch out.
There is always a line for brunch at Blackwood. Maybe because it’s one of the only bottomless brunch places with Bloody Marys, maybe because the people of the Marina are alcoholics, maybe because they don’t take reservations, or maybe because people really need pad thai at 11am. The menu has lots of options, from basic scrambles to surprisingly good salads to the aforementioned pad thai. You do you.
The Deal: $20 for bottomless mimosas or Bloody Marys. Two-hour limit.
Mimosas await at this cute corner spot in the Castro, once you get past the inevitable line. The deep fried, mascarpone stuffed french toast is disgusting and wonderful at the same time, or if you’d prefer to die a slow death rather than an immediate one, the sandwiches and benedicts will do you right as well.
The Deal: $19 for bottomless mimosa. Two hour limit.
If you’d like to feel swank while drinking more champagne than you thought possible, The Dorian is your place. There are high ceilings, plush chairs, and the bottles of champagne get cheaper the more you order. You should probably make a reservation, and come with a group - you aren’t going to get to that fourth bottle for $20 without a bit of help. Don’t forget to eat too: the burger is one of the best in the neighborhood.
The Deal: Champagne by the bottle (with choice of juices). The more bottles you buy, the cheaper they get: $40 for 1st bottle, $30 for 2nd, $25 for 3rd, $20 for 4th.
