How you feel about Sweet Maple depends on how much your heart flutters when you hear words like “bottomless” or “bacon baked with brown sugar and cayenne.” The bustling, near-chaotic Lower Pacific Heights brunch restaurant is one of the city’s better options for 11am weekend sustenance. It’s also no secret, so there’s basically always a line. If you’re down to wait, massive portions of eggs, pancakes, and Bloody Marys are your reward. You’ll dig into egg soufflés and sweet potato tots next to 20-somethings whose bloodstreams are 45% last night’s tequila shots, and families settling in for a nice pancake breakfast. This is the sister restaurant to candied bacon royalty Kitchen Story, so ordering the Millionaire’s Bacon is a non-negotiable.
