I have to say, however, my favorite place we ate was Herbivore. We went there on our last day in San Francisco for Brunch and everything from the atmosphere, to the service, to the food was outstanding. It was a bit too chilly to sit outside but I saw a lovely patio in the back of the establishment which I am sure is wonderful in warmer weather. We sat along the wall and our waiter was very friendly and patient as we poured over the menu.
I ordered the Southwestern Tofu Scramble, which was all kinds of delicious. It came with tofu scramble filled with onions and bell peppers, a great big side of black beans, potato hash, an in-house made salsa, sour cream, and a huge slice of blueberry cornbread. I was in heaven! The size was so generous and the price so good: something not easy to find in NYC.
Forrest ordered the trail mix pancakes which were not as component packed as my dish, but just as delicious. They came with three lovely sized pancakes filled with coconut, walnuts, and chocolate chips served with a nice serving of fresh fruit.
Overall a great experience with even better food!
