Ballard sure has some adorable restaurants tucked into it. This being one of them. We went here on a nice Sunday afternoon for brunch. There was a long wait so I had plenty of time to decide what I was going to order. I immediately knew – the lentil salad with warm lentils, a soft poached egg (I’m a sucker for poached eggs on just about anything), lardon and celery on top of spinach. Holy moly this was tasty! Definitely satisfied my insane hunger after the hour wait and I would recommend it to everyone! Next time I might try one of their egg bakes…two eggs in tomato with sausage, mushrooms and mozzarella? Yes please! Adorable space, lovely staff and delicious food.
I definitely have favorite breakfast spots in SF but this one is new to me and a place I would love to go back to…if not for breakfast, for lunch or dinner. Executive Chef Jen Biesty is a former Top Chef contestant as well as her pastry chef, Tim Nugent.
One of my favorite breakfast items is chilaquiles. Tortilla chips smothered in tomatillo sauce, ranchero sauce and créme fraiche baked to perfection. This particular recipe has two poached eggs on top and was exactly what I was hoping for! Yummmm!
