Breakfast in SF

I went to San Francisco with a group of friends during spring break, and we went to this restaurant recommended by my brother before visiting Alcatraz Island. It’s called Brenda’s, which is French Soul Food. Walking here was a little sketchy, because it was near Tenderloin (not the safest area) in San Francisco.. but the end result was quite worth it.

Tia ordered this actually. It’s the beignet flight that consisted of a crawfish donut, plan donut, chocolate donut, and an apple donut. I tried the crawfish… and it was to die for. It had a good mixture of salty and sweet that was a perfect balance. Next to her plate were grits, which I did not try.

I also ordered this drink, which was a watermelon iced tea. This was also one of their well known items that you definitely had to try. I’m sure glad I did. It was thirst quenching with a little hint of watermelon.

I ordered this plate, which was an Andouille sausage and cheddar cheese omelet that had mushrooms and scallions inside. This was okay, not the best omelet I’ve ever had. I’m not a big fan of the red sauce that was on top.

This is another dish my friend, Justine, ordered. This looked absolutely delicious and was envious of her choice. This was homemade granola pancakes and fresh fruit drizzled in vanilla bean cream. The description alone makes my mouth water. Unfortunately, I didn’t sample this.. but just from the looks of it, I’m sure this dish was delicious.

Would I go again? Definitely. I would try Tia’s beignet flight or their eggs benedict. 🙂
