Who says the party has to end after the wedding reception? An intimate day-after brunch lets you keep the festivities going a bit longer, and it provides a less hectic environment to spend quality time with your closest friends and family. The following San Francisco restaurants offer delicious brunches for any small post-wedding gathering.
Just over the Golden Gate Bridge in sunny Sausalito, Murray Circle is a restaurant located at the historic Cavallo Point Lodge, a sprawling property with an expansive lawn and beautiful views of the iconic bridge. There are two rooms available for groups, each offering fireplaces and views of the Golden Gate Bridge and San Francisco Bay, and both can hold 28 people when combined, or up to 14 individually. The three-course brunch includes salad and a choice of sandwich, burger, or eggs benedict as well as dessert. Read real brides' reviews here!

North Beach's Park Tavern offers its contemporary American brunch dishes — think avocado toast, buttermilk pancakes, shrimp and grits, and corned beef hash — as well as tasty brunch-appropriate cocktails like the chocolate-banana-bourbon Boozy Smoothie. The restaurant offers privacy in the 800-square-foot Eden Room, which can accommodate up to 50 seated guests.

Consistently voted one of the best brunches in San Francisco, Foreign Cinema offers a variety of private dining options and a mix of Mediterranean and California fare such as fresh oysters, poached eggs with duck confit, and Croque Madame sandwiches. Larger groups can rent out the patio or the mezzanine overlooking the main dining room while smaller groups (of up to 12 people) can take the semi-private Director's Table.

Brunch dishes run the gamut from oysters and smoked-salmon Scotch eggs to a full English breakfast.
