One of my favorites activities in the city is to hit brunch on the weekends. Whether it’s eating traditional American fare or hitting up a Chinese restaurant for Dim Sum, plenty of options are available for your dining pleasure.

On this trip, my girlfriend and I drove on over to Hayes Valley to get our grub on at Stacks. I’ve been to the Stacks down the Peninsula a few years back so I was ready for a refresher at the San Francisco location. We ended up sitting at the bar where the service was friendly and the food came quickly.

Bananas, Whipped Cream, and Crushed Walnuts on a Golden buttery waffle

Eggs Benedict & Sliced Ham over a toasted English Muffin

The eggs were well poached and nicely complemented the lightly salted ham. On top of the eggs was a nice smooth hollandaise sauce that was tangier than expected, but was still creamy and buttery. Overall an enjoyable dish with a small side of fruit and hashed potatoes to top it off. The waffle on the other hand, was buttery and fluffy but not anything out of the ordinary. Through and through, solid brunch fare. It's probably worth checking out all the eateries in the Hayes Valley area, but Stacks will remain a solid go to choice.
