The Elite Cafe/Pacific Heights

Pros:1928 mahogany booths, elegant New Orleans twist
Cons:Get here before noon or deal with the wait
Best For: Mimosas, warm beignets and a great Sunday brunch

The Elite Cafe is open for dinner 7 nights a week, but the Saturday and Sunday brunch is the star. There's been a restaurant in this space since 1928 and if you can snag one of the original mahogany booths, you're in for a real treat. The room has an authentic vintage aura and the staff is skilled.

Hoof it home to burn off some calories afterwards 'cause you don't want to skimp on this meal. The Meetinghouse biscuits, swoonfully good beignets and cornmeal pancakes make it worth the effort of getting out of bed in the morning. Folks claim that the Elite Cajun Style Braised Beef Hash Topped With Poached Eggs And Bechamel Sauce is OMG.
