Super Duper Strikes Again, This Time With Breakfast

Posted By on Tue, May 19, 2015 at 12:32 PM


Super Duper
had better slow its roll, or it’s going to bump against the formula retail ban, which thwarts businesses from opening in certain neighborhoods if there are more than 11 or more locations across the galaxy. Until that happens, we’re going to keep enjoying all the free jalapeños and housemade pickles we can handle, to say nothing of the garlic fries.

(Not for nothing were they SF Weekly’s Best Homegrown Chain this month, but for the record, they’re up to nine locations, of which six are in San Francisco proper.) And a new location at 346 Kearny Street (at Pine) formally opens next Wednesday, May 27, with a free food giveaway from 6-8 a.m. on Tuesday and Wednesday, May 26 and 27. Watch out, though: Unlike the three other downtown locations, this one won’t be open weekends.

However, that early time slot ought to be a clue that this Super Duper augurs a new development: They’re following the fast-food giants into the breakfast realm, quite likely outdoing them by a mile. Super Duper has $4 breakfast sandwiches mad with organic eggs, cheddar and a choice of bacon or sausage, plus fresh-squeezed OJ and housemade donuts. Sold at the refreshingly low price of 75 cents each (or three for $2), they’re produced on an old-fashioned donut-making contraption and come with a glaze and possibly a bit of lemon zest. You can also get a Super Combo (egg sandwich with cheese and either bacon or sausage, plus three donuts and a large Four Barrel coffee) for only seven bucks.

This is probably baseless speculation, but I do hope the donut machine generates a lot of steam and a conveyor belt of fresh donuts emerges from the sugary miasma like Sutro Tower’s upper antennae out of a receding fog bank. Barring that, there’s always wine on tap!

Super Duper Burgers, 346 Kearny, 415-974-1200.

  • 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.'"
