Chez Maman/Portrero Hill

Pros: An authentic sweet spot with a great neighborhood vibe
Cons: Put your name on the chalkboard and be patient
Best For: A relaxed weekend repast with a French twist

Chez Maman
San Franciscans love this French cafe on top of Portrero Hill for its Gallic style burgers, perfectly cheesy onion soup and classic buckwheat savory crepes. Chez Maman is no larger than a counter's worth of seats and a few tables inside and out but once seated, this welcoming, homey cafe delights with simple bistro fare. Relax, savor, and enjoy the view with a post-brunch stroll around the hilltop jewel of a neighborhood.
