The Lunchpad 581 Hayes Street @ Laguna (In Noir Lounge) smack dab in the middle of Hayes Valley – making brilliant sandwiches, hosting boozie brunches and catering to the culinary


One of my favorite things to do is, Uber down to Hayes Valley on a weekend, wander about; have a boozy brunch, followed by shopping!  Where to go?  We love The Lunch Pad!  Yes, your favorite sandwich shop home to the “Juan Bon Jovi” (Roasted Turkey, habanero candied bacon, smoked sharp cheddar ++) and the “Three Little Pigs” (you can figure it out) has gone beyond their not so standard fare to welcome you and your slightly hung over friends to spend a couple of hours in their dreamy comfortable space.  Big tables, big couches, happy patrons and a bustin menu including some of the best biscuits you will have in the bay! I think we need a "biscuit off” – so eme if you have a contender.

Now, this is not simply a post to suggest you visit a place popular with many, but to let you know you can take it one step further.  Adam Hubbell; lover of the pickle and Executive Chef of The Lunchpad SF will be leading a Pickling class Sunday!

Happy Pickles .. you may even make enough to give away – I tend to share sparingly if at all.
