Review: Zazie.

Nestled in Cole Valley lies a quaint restaurant that serves up some fresh delectable brunch.

Zazie has been opened since 1992 and without a doubt is one of the most popular places for brunch in San Francisco. They’re also open for dinner but I’ve been wanting to try their brunch for years now but never had an opportunity to go.


BLT Provencale with Goat Cheese on Herb Foccacia (8/10).

While this sandwich was on the smaller side, you can’t go wrong with a blt sando. The combination of crispy bacon, slightly roasted tomatoes, creamy tangy goat cheese with mixed greens on herb focaccia is just perfection.


Gingerbread Pancakes with Lemon Curd and Poached Bosc Pears (8/10).

These pancakes were fluffy and moist flavored with warm comforting spices that paired great with the tangy lemon curd. I loved the addition of the poached pears especially when drizzled with sweet maple syrup. Their other pancakes and french toasts also sounded incredible.


Croque Madame with Potatoes (7.5/10).

I love a good croque monsieur (ham and cheese sandwich with béchamel) but a croque madame adds a fried egg on top. While this was tasty, I wanted the challah bread to be more toasted, like cooked in a pan, to get that crunchy exterior golden crust.


Chicken Apple Sausage (8/10).

Simple, tasty, meaty…delcious.

Overall, I couldn’t have asked for more for a brunch spot. We also had some sparkling lemonade with elderflower syrup that was incredibly refreshing. If you’re looking for a cute restaurant and some tasty brunch food I’d recommend Zazie. Therefore, my rating is an 8/10.
