Need a great Breakfast place for group of 14 people

Hi everyone, I need to find a breakfast place in San Fran that can easily handle 14 people.

Ideally we'd have a somewhat separate area so we can have some privacy as this is a breakfast meeting for our company. Needs to be on the mid to upper end of the scale.

We're staying in SOMA so something within a 10min drive sort of radius would be perfect.

All help gratefully received!

Upper end of scale with reservations. Garden court at the SF palace hotel. A short walk from Union sq. Staying in SOMA then this is soma but soma is quite a big area

Where are you staying? A Hotel? I'd just have it set up in a meeting room in a hotel.

Driving 10 minutes in SOMA is about the same as walking for 20. Traffic is madness in that area and there is a ton of construction all over.

Not only driving, but trying to find a place to park is another big problem. So yes if you are staying at a hotel, why not just eat at that hotel?

Thanks for the tips guys - we are staying in a Air BnB house in SOMA so we can hold the meeting there if all else fails, but still require a breakfast joint for the whole team.

I am trying hotels but since we're there for a massive conference at Moscone Centre the hotels are pretty full.

Good to know about the traffic and parking, thanks, I will definitely add a little more time into the schedule to allow for this.

Parking at the larger hotels for a 1-2 hour breakfast will cost you money as well for valet parking. SOMA is a large area so where are you staying ? Is this for every breakfast meal for the days you are in the city ?

Hi there, we are staying in Rausch St - so anything close-ish would be great.

If it's not walking distance we'd be jumping in a cab so parking shouldn't be a problem.

It's just for a one off team breakfast, the rest of the time they will be self catering. Has anyone been to Rocco's cafe?

Thanks!

We've been to Triptych Close by but it is not a breakfast spot. Now Sightglass coffee is very close and some great coffee but not the place for 14 people to order a sit down breakfast.

It is not the best area to see SF but if you are here for work and going around in cabs that should be ok.

Or have a breakfast catered to your apartment. Lots of places will deliver. Or if you want to go high end, hire a personal chef to come over to cook for you.

Rocco's is not good if you are having a breakfast meeting, kinda greasy spoonish and no privacy.

Have a private crepe chef come and cook for the group.

Found this on yelp with good reviews.

I think that may be a challenging area -- it's not an established residential area, so there aren't a lot of services set up for people living in the area. And it's not a hotel area, so there aren't services set up for visitors needing breakfast. (In fact, it will be interesting to see what your group thinks about that area...)

I'd walk down Howard to the InterContinental... there's not going to be anything at the upper end of the scale much closer.

(Take a virtual walk through this area on Google Maps, just so you know what to expect....)
