SAN FRANCISCO POP UP
themed brunches :: mimosas :: benedicts :: pancakes and much more
Friends With Benedict’s is a pop up brunch adventure by Chef Derrik Soares and Pop Ups Unlimited, his one stop pop up creation group and resource that started in San Francisco, California in 2015. With a team of local stand up comedians and some of SF’s most experienced line cooks, we looked to disrupt the local brunch scene and build a unique business platform! Our humble beginnings were in an old tenderloin Greek Restaurant. We began creating unique and themed brunch menus, such as Star Wars, Game of Thrones, The Simpsons, you get the idea (check out the theme brunch section), ultimately we’ve had over 75 unique menus to work from! We began by having a new themed brunch every weekend with a unique menu, and well, we haven’t slowed down! We’ve expanded some of our events to full month long menus due to higher demand. During the winter months we offer a solid regular brunch menu with the years best items and to give us a chance to recharge and watch a ton of TV and movies!
We cater and create special themed parties outside of our host restaurants and try to make brunch in house a fun experience for you and your friends. We continue to serve the best traditional breakfast in the neighborhood as well as offer creative dishes for the adventurer! Do we have a secret menu? I couldn’t tell you!
Our main event space is Maye’s Oyster House (1233 Polk St.). Word spread about our little pop up and so did our wings, we opened our second event location in North Beach at the fantastic Chief Sullivan’s (622 Green St.), followed by a third in Russian Hill at the always hoppin’ House Rules (2227 Polk St.) in 2017 and now we are proudly building locations in Washington DC and Philadelphia (TBA).
Come check out our delicious Dinners at each location as well! We serve great pub fare as well as creative small bites, burgers and specials. Although we are growing, we're just a small group trying to make a name for ourselves doing what we love. Eat brunch with Friends!
