Braving Brunch: Sweet and Savory Harmony at Plow

The Plow has a little bit of everything.

Notorious for its long lines, brunching in the city can easily turn into a whole-day affair. That's why SFoodie is proud to present its newest series, “Braving Brunch,” your go-to resource for navigating the mid-morning meal.

The Spot: Plow

The Neighborhood: Potrero Hill

The Cuisine: New American

Specialty Item: The Plow

Worth the Wait? Definitely

The most difficult part about brunch? Deciding between sweet and savory once it finally comes time to order. Sure, you could share, but at Plow, they've already anticipated your internal debate and solved your woes even before you set foot in the door.

Tucked away in the hills of Potrero, Plow exudes a warm, comforting, homey ambiance thanks to a cozy space, friendly staff and finished wood décor sourced from the Bay Area. You almost get the feel of an upscale diner, with one long counter overlooking the kitchen, tables lined against enormous windows overlooking the 18th Street, and even a few spots outside along the sidewalk.

While Plow offers a solid range of brunch fare, your best bet is to satisfy both sweet and savory sides simultaneously with their signature dish, aptly named “The Plow.” Two eggs your style, two lemon ricotta pancakes, a choice of house made pork sausage, bacon, or chicken-apple sausage, and their famous crispy potatoes all pile onto a single plate to produce four mini-meals in one.
