Candybar for Brunch

A few weeks ago, when I celebrated my birthday at Candybar (1335 Fulton Street), we noticed that the dessert lounge would be starting a new Sunday brunch service beginning at 10 a.m. on November 30 (normally, the place doesn't open until 6 p.m.). We endeavored to become the first brunch guests and succeeded with generous slabs of Acme vanilla french toast with persimmon syrup and candied persimmons and a delicate Pink Lady apple salad with Point Reyes blue cheese, hazelnuts and heavenly burnt honey vinaigrette.

The evening dessert menu changes monthly, but it was explained to us that the brunch selection will change every Sunday, the end result of a Saturday trip to the Farmer's Market followed by a brainstorm session. While we hope Candybar will rotate a few more sweets (from the evening menu or otherwise) into the brunch, it was a satisfying (and affordable) meal--and one that didn't keep us jacked up on sugar all night long. --Tamara Palmer

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
