Rustic city breakfast. Dad and I meandered over to Pier 15 to try out their breakfast. And since Pier 15 is owned by the same people who own Mama's on Washington Square, in San Francisco, there are menu items cross-over! So instead of paying the $5 toll and standing in a line around the block, you can get your Mama's fix at Pier 15's casual setting with neither.
The view from the deck is of water and boats.
The deck is quite rustic, but with plenty of seating. The other patrons at the time of our visit looked like they could have stepped right off the set of "Grumpy Old Men", in shorts however. My Dad felt right at home with the unshaven older set.
He said his eggs with link sausage and Canadian bacon could have come right from the kitchen on the farm he grew up, and he relished the whole thing.
I went for a seasonal twist on a Mama's menu favorite. French toast -- the thin egged slices of French bread sliced lengthwise were covered in the freshest, sweetest berries. And it was served artfully, with the slices fanned out and a smooth fresh lemon sauce drizzled over it all. Now the cat is out of the bag, and I hope that I won't have to stand in line the next time we come!
FOOTNOTE: Since the earliest Pier 15 opens is at 9 a.m., this one is in the brunch category. However breakfast items are served everyday and all day.
