Help me avoid a grueling death by freezing this Saturday:
I am planning to meet two friends for brunch. We have a time constraint, in that we have to be at Miette in Hayes Valley at 11am to pick up a birthday cake, after which we need to drive to the party.
So I'm thinking Canteen near my place at 9:30, but I'm terrified the line will be too long (although, maybe the chill will keep others away).
Alternatively, we could eat near Miette in Hayes Valley, but I've never brunched in the area and am at a loss. Is there a place that takes brunch reservations? A place that has decent turnover? Or a place that's just so delicious I should wake up earlier and get there?
