San Francisco is a tough town to live in if you’re single. But to be fair, thanks to dating/hookup apps and the fact that everyone stares at a tiny computer in their hand at all times, that’s pretty much true about every city these days. Now factor into that equation that SF is transient, full of humans to which it has never occurred that ghosting/flaking is rude, and attracts people who would rather be in a serious commitment with their job than a human, well, it sometimes seems like actually forging a meaningful connection with another human is truly impossible.

Sometimes people overlook the museums of San Francisco. Not because they’re subpar. Quite the contrary. But SF has so many other things to distract you – the Golden Gate Bridge, great restaurants, Victorian homes, Fisherman’s Wharf (Not!) – that the world-class museums are sometimes a second thought.

Brunch isn’t just a meal in San Francisco – it’s an event. So we’ve selected the ten best spots to enjoy it in the city.
Brunch gets a bad rap. It’s not just a meal; it’s an event. It’s a time to celebrate the weekend with a boozy drink you’d normally not imbibe so early and hearty grub you’d not eat during the week.
