Looking for an unexpected surprise? Disguised as a tiny cafe, Blue Fig’s flavorful food will throw you for a loop.

I am a huge breakfast person, as are many locals here in San Francisco. Although it is pretty easy to escape the traditional breakfast menu, some dishes are difficult to re-invent. Waffles, a personal favorite, can often get boring and borderline monotonous. Blue Fig changed my mind.

Their signature dish is the Blue Cornmeal Waffle with a Fig Reduction Syrup– a combination that will give you foodie chills. I finally understood why the place was packed, and was wildly impressed with the oozing deliciousness. For food that appears to be simple, the flavors were unexpectedly complex. I was also very impressed with their lattes, Croque Madame, and Egg Sandwich.

Friendly service, food cooked to order, cozy atmosphere, and to-die-for waffles, what more to ask for?
