This seems almost like a no-brainer: ~THE FRONT PORCH~ is starting brunch this Saturday October 16th from 10am-2:30pm. On the menu: biscuits with country gravy; country ham and red eye gravy with two eggs any way and homefries; sweet potato waffles with syrup and toasted pecans; parfait with seasonal fruit, yogurt, and granola; baked egg with grits, wild mushrooms, and spinach; and huevos rancheros with tortilla, beans, salsa, and guacamole. The lunch menu—which includes chicken and waffles—will also be available during brunch. Mon-Sat 5:30pm-10:30pm, Sun 5pm-10pm, lunch Wed-Fri 12pm-3pm, brunch (hooray!) 10am-2:30pm. 65A 29th St. at Tiffany.

Another addition to the brunch scene is ~THE SYCAMORE~, which is starting brunch service this weekend. On the menu: their now-famous pork belly donuts with maple Maker’s Mark glaze (3 for $3); carnitas Benedictos, a housemade corn sope topped with carnitas, poached egg, jalapeño hollandaise, pico de gallo, avocado, and cotija cheese ($12); along with a variety of omelets, sliders, salads, and sandwiches—including their popular roast beef. And bottomless mimosas. Brunch is served Sat-Sun 11am-3pm. 2140 Mission St. at Sycamore (at 18th St.), 415-252-7704.
