Le Marais churns out phenomenal croissants, granola, and Stumptown coffee starting at 7am, and serves the best French pastries in the city. The breakfast board mix and match option is pretty wonderful (since you can get a little granola, an egg, smoked salmon, and your pick of pastries). Just avoid the avocado “toast” - it’s an avocado on a croissant, which is silly - and brace yourself to be treated as an inconvenience at best. Tres French.

Nook is a solidly on-price, reliable neighborhood hang in Russian Hill. Even if they do weird things with granola.
