Travel Tuesday: Ella’s in San Francisco

When ever we make our way over to San Francisco, we’re lucky to have friend and natural born tour guide @sunnyb4. She’s always ready and able to take us to all the local favourites or join us in making a fool of ourselves on the hilly SF’s streets!

First, a confession,

Isabelle has often raved about Ella’s, a gem on Presidio Avenue. Time flies and I have been remiss not to share the lovely Ella’s with you. So forgive me, dear reader, I offer you delicious foodie pictures that I hope will make up for keeping this place a secret until now!


A neighbourhood establishment since 1990, Ella’s boasts neo-classical american cooking with affordable pricing. We started our meal off with our liquid essentials, coffee and freshly squeezed juice!

I decided that the only thing that my breakfasts had missing up until this point was Jerk Chicken. So I opted for the delicious Jerk Chicken folded omelette.

The jerk chicken isn’t overly spicy and is complimented nicely by the caramelized onions, roasted peppers and jack cheese. The only time I was happy that San Francisco is hilly, this meal definitely called for a walk about after! Noah ordered to share the lemon ginger oatmeal pancakes.

Fluffy and oat-y served with a side of Coombs Family Farms maple syrup from Vermont. Isabelle’s favourite thing to order at Ella’s is the Fried cornmeal with cheddar and green onions. It comes with a side of bacon and eggs over easy. I mean look at this beautiful plate:

I’ll just let Isabelle tell you why this meal rocks:

The cornmeal is infused with the sharp cheddar but brightened by the freshness of the green onion. Then just break it open and the let the egg yolk soak through…DROOOOOLZ. The biscuit wasn’t really necessary…so eat it separately slathered in their homemade butter and berry jam

If you aren’t booking your ticket to San Francisco yet .. well why not? ¬†Ella’s waiting for you!
