What Is It? Located at the north end of Ocean Beach, the Cliff House is a restaurant that was originally built in 1863, but it’s burned down twice over the years and has been remodeled in several styles since, going from a Victorian gingerbread to the modern/classical design it has today.
Why Do It? Not only does the restaurant boast endless ocean views, but its Sunday brunch is to-die-for. Frequently listed on or near the top of the best brunch in the city, it’s served buffet-style with a variety of seasonal fresh items enjoyed while listening to harp music and sipping fantastic bloody marys.
Good to Know: Ask the staff about the “brunch to-go kit” if you think you’ll find yourself craving a visit but live too far away – it includes a bottle of their classic Bloody Mary mix and the mix for their delicious popovers.
