Kate's Kitchen - San Francisco, CA
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, right? Why is it then that it is so hard to find a decent place to get breakfast? I'm not a big breakfast person, in fact I skip breakfast 5 days out of the week because I just don't have the time or desire to eat in the morning, but on weekends or when I'm on vacation I want breakfast. This only ever really poses a problem when traveling overseas as most country's idea of breakfast is espresso (or coffee) and some sort of pastry, which I would be fine with if I ate gluten.
Kate's Kitchen in San Francisco is an excellent reason to never skip breakfast. I went to Kate's not once, but twice during my 4 days in San Francisco. You could definitely say I enjoyed it. My first visit there I had the corned beef hash with two eggs sunny side up. You'd think that it would be a greasy gut bomb, but it was the total opposite. The corned beef hash was made from real beef chunks and was actually not greasy or heavy at all. In fact I ate pretty much everything on my plate and I felt pleasantly satiated and not the slightest bit nauseous or ill afterwards. For me that is an indicator of good food.
The service at Kate's was a bit slow doing Saturday brunch, but that's understandable. It was definitely worth the wait and I even went back a few days later to grab breakfast before my flight home. I didn't have corned beef hash the second time around, but I still had a solid, delicious breakfast and I would definitely go back the next time I'm in San Francisco.
