Denver scram – Judy’s Cafe

Denver scram - Judy's Cafe
Two eggs scrambled with diced ham, onion, bell pepper, served with homefried potatoes and 9-grain wheat toast. $12
Judy’s Cafe, San Francisco CA

We came across this busy brunch spot in the Marina because another restaurant we were planning on eating at was closed. The menu items were pretty basic and standard fare. The Denver scramble was ok. There was A LOT of it so you definitely got your money’s worth. The potatoes were delicious though and I couldn’t stop eating them! They were soft and tender and super flavorful. The service, on the other hand, was sporadic, confused and difficult to flag down.

Yummy mimosas lead to a happy me! I’m kinda annoyed that they charge fifty cents extra for the grapefuit juice though especially since it isn’t listed on their menu.

Rum, grapefruit, lime, splash of Luxardo over ice. $9
Fork Cafe, San Francisco CA

This cocktail was really refreshing! It had a beautiful color and definitely evoked a place with a warmer climate where Hemmingway might have traveled. If it was a little less sweet, I would have love it even more.

Highland Adventure Weather Station elephant
Random elephant ride at the Highland Adventure Weather Station in the middle of the island. It was probably defunct, but I like the weathered look of it. We had taken a taxi tour around the island with a hilariously outspoken driver named Angela. We learned that she doesn’t eat rabbit because a skinned rabbit looks like a human baby, and she doesn’t eat shark because she had recently witnessed a butchered shark with a human hand in its belly. Lol!
