Mother’s Day Brunch at The Cliff House

21 05 2014

Mom likes a nice view and an elegant atmosphere. Cut to: The Cliff House Restaurant perched nicely atop a (wait for it) cliff on the very western reaches of San Francisco, overlooking the grand old Pacific. The beautifully renovated 1909 facility has been around since 1863, at least in name — two former incarnations succumbed to fire over the years (once even after surviving the 1906 earthquake — doh!).

Happy Mom’s Day Mom!!!

The Sunday Champagne Brunch Buffet is hosted weekly in the Terrace Room of the Cliff House, overlooking views of Ocean Beach and the Pacific herself. They jack the price up for Mom’s Day, but that’s to be expected.

I have to say I was a bit scared that the food wouldn’t be great, and that the selling points were the famous digs and great views rather than the platters in the center of the room. Fortunately, I was pleasantly surprised. The list of food on offer goes on and on, but I’ll just show you a few pics to ponder. Also, they had a harp player to round out the elegant vibe. Harps rock. And this lady even played us some Stairway. Stairway on harp!! What more could you ask for?
