Bernal Star is the go-to brunch spot for beignets, eggs benedict, and crispy fish sandwiches, and catch-up conversations with friends who recently hit Major Life Milestones. Their big draw is their fantastic outdoor patio space, which has umbrellas and plenty of heat lamps to keep you and your dog warm on chilly Bernal Heights mornings. If you come here later in the day, the patio is ideal for having a beer and their solid burger.
