Pork Store Cafe
When you wake up with a strong desire to faceplant into some eggs and toast, Pork Store Cafe is the answer. At this breakfast and lunch spot in the Haight, corned beef hash, omelettes, and pancakes are hearty enough to feed a pack of coyotes, ten times over. While the food won’t blow your mind, this spot gets the job done, especially if said “job” means soaking up any residual margarita sloshing around in your stomach from the night before. But at least the coffee never stops coming. Service inside this casual place filled with colorful Haight-Ashbury posters and quirky paintings of pigs doing diner things is efficient, and you can also walk in wearing anything from slides and socks to a full-on wearable blanket.
