  • Dungeness Crab cakes with poached eggs...are you kidding me!?! So good!
  • So many brunch classics here: the flatbread or soft scramble for something lighter, the hash or meaty sandwich of the day if you're hungry. The real secret: the toasted banana bread with cream cheese.
  • During the week, this Mission hot spot serves up the fried egg sandwich on a poppy seed kaiser roll, but if you can make it through to the weekend, grab one at brunch instead.
  • Expensive but delicious SF brunch. Be prepared to wait in line for half an hour.
  • Now these are some good french fries...they're #83 on 7x7's Big Eat SF 2010.
  • Everything is delicious, but if I had to single out one item it would be the banana bread.
  • best brunch in the country. try the fruit plate and the soft scrambled eggs.
  • First time? You can never go wrong with the soft scrambled eggs.
  • The little gems is a salad! Don't pass it by if you don't know the lingo
  • Arrive before 9 A.M. on weekends and chuckle as the waiting brunch crowd stares enviously at your sake bloody mary, soft-scrambled eggs, and toasted banana bread.
  • picks-> healthy: soft-scrambled eggs, not: french toast
  • You can't order wrong at Universal brunch. Standbys include the fruit plate, flatbread, banana bread, any egg dish...and of course, their seasonal bellini!
  • Get a bellini at brunch - always made with fresh fruit, and potent!
  • Love their take on Southern food. They also do weekday brunch.
  • Sourdough egg sando was delicious
  • Make sure u keep tabs on where you are on the list. They sometimes skip over names by accident.
