The best place to go in the city for beignets! While the wait can be a bit ridiculous at prime times, I believe it is worth it. I would say that the wait is less on weekdays are better than weekends.
MUST GETS:
Fried catfish Benedict's
Fried chicken
Crawfish beignets
Gumbo
Watermelon ice tea

Hangtown fry from house favorites part of the menu was amazing. It's crispy oysters & scallion scramble,with grits or hash, plus cream biscuit or toast.
Tight space, very loud, not a very long wait,
Great seafood breakfast.

Local favorite with a unique atmosphere. Not sure what French soul food is but very good bunch fare. Try the crepe flight, yes even the shrimp stuffed one. Food was good. Service great. Expect a line at the door but you can get a cup of coffee outside while you wait for seating. SF landmark if you have the time it's worth a visit.
