SACRAMENTO STREET’s BEST
Presidio Heights/Laurel Heights
Catering to the wealthy local residents and less frequented by tourists, this tony street is populated with many interior designers and decorating shops. Because of this, many shops are closed on Sunday and the restaurant pickings are slim.
Ella’s 500 Presidio Ave./California St., Presidio Heights. This cheery spot changes its menu weekly and serves a close to perfect weekend brunch. Grin and bear the wait. It is worth it for the oh-so-simple fluffy scrambled eggs that come with simple home fries and a yummy oversize baking soda biscuit with strawberry preserves. The buttermilk waffles and pancakes, scrambles, and chicken hash are also primo. And parents will be happy to know it is kid central here on weekends, with pacifiers, toys, and baby carriers everywhere. The limited lunch menu includes soups, sandwiches, salads, hot entrees, and a delicious gingery punch made with fresh OJ. After, it’s just a block over to Sacramento Street for some chi-chi shopping.
Magic Flute Ristorante 3673 Sacramento St./Spruce St., Laurel Heights. Situated within a 1914 vintage Victorian on a low-key, high-quality shopping street, this pleasant spot offers comfortable indoor tables as well as outdoor garden seating. The work of local artists colorfully decorates sponge-painted walls. Among items on the California-Italian menu are salads and pastas as well as a great cheeseburger. Housemade desserts include a killer double fudge chocolate cake and a rich, rich tiramisu.
