Back in 2010, two brothers started a coffee shop out of a converted delivery truck in San Francisco. Flash forward to now, and the brothers behind Réveille Coffee Co. own five locations (including that truck, now parked in one neighborhood), where they serve their roasts. One of those locations is especially #brunchbucketlist worthy—the Cafe Réveille space in the Mission Bay neighborhood. From it's gotta-gram-it Millenial-pink tables to it's eclectic yet healthy menu, this restaurant is absolutely worth a stop.

Pretty in Pink
High ceilings, bright and airy vibes, unique tiles and ah—those pink tables. This space was made for photos. The café serves as the roasting headquarters, so you may catch the coffee pros brewing up the next single-origin batch. The outdoor seating area is the perfect place to catch up and linger over a latté on a sunny day.
Cafe Réveille’s menu is a huge crowd pleaser, giving health-conscious eaters options like Coconut Chia Pudding and Kale Salad without isolating the brunchers who just want a hearty plate of pancakes with bacon. Avocado toast, matcha drinks, fresh-squeezed juice and cold brew are also on the menu, and you can’t leave without sampling some of the pastries from Neighbor Bakehouse. Weekend brunch is served 8 a.m.–3 p.m, and breakfast starts at 7:15 a.m. every day.

Coffee First, Wander After
Mission Bay is a young waterfront neighborhood on the rise. The cafe is across Mission Creek from AT&T Park and also walkable to SoMa, Dogpatch and South Beach neighborhoods, with plenty of restaurants, shopping and galleries to wander.
