A new year, a new brunch: ~HUXLEY~ is now offering Sunday brunch from 11am-2:30pm. The new menu, which you can check out here, includes their avocado toast with uni, seaweed, and sesame, as well as braised pork with fried eggs, lentils, and radish, or French toast with apple butter and walnuts. There are also ice cream options, including a Sightglass coffee ice cream with coffee brittle. 846 Geary St. at Hyde, 415-800-8223.

Mornings in SoMa just got a lot better: ~MERIGAN SUB SHOP~ is now offering breakfast sandwiches from 8:30am-10:30am Monday through Friday. The menu is still being finalized, but a photo of one with griddled mortadella, egg, salsa verde, and ricotta hit their Facbeook page over the weekend. Yeah, get it.

Hoodline reports that you don’t need an app for all your delivery needs, after all (who knew?). Turns out, you can just make an old-fashioned phone call to ~ROOM SERVICE~ in the Inner Sunset, and they’ll deliver what you need to your door. The convenience store offers a wide selection of beer, wine, spirits, snack foods, and household staples, and owner Daniel Flores reports that one of their top sellers is ice cream. Of course. The minimum order for delivery is $30, with a $5 delivery fee, free delivery for orders over $50. 900 Irving St. at 10th Ave., 415-566-7666.

As of Monday January 5th, ~COFFEE BAR~ has joined the wintertime flavored coffee madness, but with a special San Francisco twist. Two local pastry chefs, Laura Cronin (Perbacco/Barbacco) and Jessica Sullivan (Delfina Restaurant Group) were invited to create a special beverage to raise money for Meals on Wheels.

Cronin’s creation is the seasonal winter mocha with orange, cinnamon, vanilla, Valrhona dark chocolate, Neapolitan espresso, and fresh whipped cream, and is available at the Financial District locations: 101 Montgomery St. at Sutter, 415-397-2233; and 433 Kearny St. at California, 415-795-1214. Sullivan’s creation is the Bicerin, made with Gianduja drinking chocolate, Neapolitan espresso, hazelnut crema, and Gianduja shavings, and is available at the Mission location: 1890 Bryant St. at Mariposa, 415-551-8100.
