Best Breakfast Ever

The title says it all. My daughter, wife and I waited only 45 minutes for a table. Short time for this restaurant. When we sat at the counter, Travis took care of us. His recommendations to start with the Sticky Bun with strawberries was fabulous. The pastry chef has hit a homerun. We then... read more

We were visiting San Francisco for a second time and found Outerlands by reviews on Trip Advisor. The restaurant is beautiful with weathered wood walls and concrete floors. Every last detail was well thought-out, right down to the ceramic cup and pen holder in which they present the bill - adorable! There was quite a wait when we go there,... More

Stopped in on a Saturday morning for brunch knowing in advance we'd be waiting a while to be seated. We were right - our wait was almost an hour. (In that time you can go next door and wait in line for 20 minutes at Trouble Coffee Co to get some fancy toast to hold you over!) Being from out... More

Unless you are in the neighborhood, I don't know if you'll have reason to visit Outerlands. Aside from its proximity to the beach, it is removed from all the iconic tourist attractions you'd associate with San Francisco. This is a lively place with a noticeably youthful and energetic clientele that was hopping from the time we arrived until, I am... More

We popped in here for dinner before catching the Muni (stops right near it) for a show in the city. We had a reservation and were seated after a few minutes wait. The decor is very interesting, with wavy, ship-like wood decor on the ceiling. The restaurant was too cold, and we think we actually saw blankets at the tables... More

The atmosphere is great. Beautifully remodeled. You could do a lot worse for lunch than here. The food is very tasty. They bake their own bread throughout the day and do a marvelous job of it. Soup was light and delicious. Service was great. So why not four or five stars? Simply put, the price is a bit high for... More

Food is ok, but only four dinner choices. Service started slow, but was ok. The mussels were tasty and was a large portion. Not sure how this place gets along with such a limited menu.

I went here for a brunch with friends and we had to wait for more than 2 hours, too much! The local is nice and the food is well prepared.

I have been organising a dinner surprise for two friends who spent the honeymoon in san francisco. A friend of mine told me to try this place out, I did trust him and I'm happy I did it. I had to talk for a few weeks with the staff to make the dinner ready and the staff has been so... More
