Having Breakfast at farm:table in San Francisco

After waiting a couple hours at Mama’s we decided to go a different route for our second breakfast in San Francisco. Once again, my sister found a spot that sounded intriguing – farm:table.

I guess you’re just going to need to take my word for it that the sign says farm:table.

It’s located in the Tenderloin which seems to be changing from gritty, no man’s land to hipster central. Don’t get me wrong, it still has it’s fare share of unsavory elements but it’s no longer a place that needs to be avoided. We found that the restaurant was not too far from our hotel so we decided to hoof it. As we got closer to the address I couldn’t see how there possible could be a hip eatery there. And then suddenly we were right in front of it. Turns out, it’s teeny tiny.

But as they say, good things come in small packages. And farm:table is really good.

I opted for a breakfast biscuit – candied bacon, cheddar, greens and a sour cream chive spread on a homemade biscuit.

I’m one of the few people who don’t think bacon is anything special. But candied bacon? Holy smokes! Was that delicious! And the combination of ingredients was outstanding.
And for my drink I was intrigued by the milk and honey – steamed milk and honey with a sprinkling of cardamom.
It had the consistency of a latte but with no caffeine. It’s one of those drinks that’s so simple yet no one had really thought of it before. I’m definitely going to need to try to recreate it at home because it was so good.
My sister went for the toast of the day. Every day they produce a different “toast” a term that is used pretty loosely. Case in point:
This “toast” is a toasted berry focaccia topped with marscapone, honey, fresh strawberries and cherries, and almonds. I tried a sample and it was delicious.
I wanted to go back the next morning but they opened after we had already hit the road. Oh well, it’s just something to look forward to next time.
