San Francisco - Harvey's (In the Castro)


Yummmy, Harvey's is always delicious, but I really like it for brunch. There's nothing better than a couple of spicy bloody marys and a great breakfast or lunch. My husband and I went for brunch with our friends Jay and Staci. We went for a late brunch....1pm, I have issues waking up early on the weekends. Anyway, we only had a 15 minute wait, and it was a beautiful day, so it wasn't bad. The place is usually packed at 10am and noon, so we got there as the main crowd was dissipating.

(Harvey's is named for Harvey Milk, a notable San Francisco politician in the 1960's, who helped bring about the LGBT rights in California. )

I had the Nacho Breakfast Skillet, YUM! Homefries cooked with bacon, ham, sausage and cheese with 2 eggs over easy on top with beans and salsa. It was way too much just for me, but I attacked it with ferocity. It came with a couple of fruit pieces and an english muffin.

Harvey's has an excellent selection of various concoctions of Bloody Mary. I had the "Bloody Mary Tyler Moore" mmmm, extra spicy AND they gave me five olive, and let me tell you, I love olives and spice. Some of the bloody marys are made with vodka, others are made with tequila. My husband had the Bloody Mary Lou Retton.

My husband had the Buffalo Chicken Salad, which in my opinion is amazing, mostly because I like a little salad with my dressing. He thought there was too much dressing, but blue cheese is great no matter how much you have. The chicken in the salad comes in a delicious and spicy wings sauce.

Staci, had the Mecca Scramble, which looked good, and must have been because she cleaned her plate. The scramble had peppers, tomatoes, onions, spinach and feta. And she sampled the mimosas and was quite pleased.

In other words, if you're looking for a place with great drinks, and filling food this is a great place to start your day.
