Blogger Reviews of Olea

  • Rebecca Gomez Farrell on Oct 11, 2013

    That cast-iron pan contained a rich stew of bacon, pork, garbanzo beans, spinach, parmesan, tomatillo sauce, and two eggs cooked right to the edge of runny. My friend could not stop praising its savoriness. My one bite was enough to confirm her opinion. It was stew done well, with each ingredient lending the others its best properties.

  • Luke B.A locals' (and neighborhood) favorite, Olea serves up delicious (albeit pricey) brunch dishes to the crowds Friday–Sunday, including their popular challah french toast.

  • Adrian AFrench toast

    55555 by Adrian A


  • Nirnaya L.The challah is ridiculously good. A bit pricey for French toast $14.75 but it's so filling for two😋 it's a bread with custard filling what's there not to like 🤔

    55555 by Nirnaya L.


  • Sean NThe challah french toast and huevos rancheros are fantastic!

    55555 by Sean N


  • Giovanna H.The BLT is too big to eat!

    55555 by Natalie K.


  • Phil LRushed service, the pork scramble was bland. Good organic oj

  • Chris AThe steak is a well balanced well thought out meal. Don't confuse this with a plate from a steak house.

  • Becca ShayneBest French toast in the city

  • Teresa YaoPlace has gone a bit downhill recently. But get the cholla French toast to share, good egg dishes.

  • Robin MTry the french toast with strawberries. Simple but very delicious. Best french toast I've ever had too.

    55555 by Robin M


  • Takeshi O.Best Cazuela in the city, must try.

    55555 by Takeshi O.


  • SFGateAlthough there are plenty of wonderful options at this quaint eatery, the french toast is a must. Often called "the best" french toast in SF, stop by Olea for a leisurely brunch.

  • Sabina B.The baked eggs are fabulous

    55555 by Sabina B.


  • daniel chenFrench tosay really good also the tomato egg stew cazuela delicious

    55555 by daniel chen


  • Adam FWhile the line does take a long time on a Sunday, it's the same no matter where you go in SF. Pork sandwich was super tasty and soft. Make sure to head over to 'Contraband' for a coffee while you wait

    55555 by Adam F


  • David K.Get the Blue Bottle french press. Make sure you show up early on the weekends.

    55555 by David K.


  • LisaGet the french toast

    33333 by Lisa


  • Andrew S.For pricey place like Olèa everything should be made in house. 13 quid for a marginally average french toast is absurd! I don't find Mexican fusion suitable for breakfast. GMO corn anyone?!

    33333 by Andrew S.


  • Nadya P.French Toast is a piece of bun for 13.5$! Worst brunch experience ever...

    22222 by Nadya P.


  • Laura Chandlerthe French toast is the business

    55555 by Laura Chandler


  • Apurva M.Get the scrambled eggs on rustic roll & challah French toast!

    55555 by Apurva M.


  • Jose P.Try the French toast and the cazuela, pretty much their signature dishes for brunch

    55555 by Jose P.


  • Michael C.No messing around: get dat French Toast

    55555 by Michael C.


  • Fernanda D.Great cozy place, excellent service, the menu is kind of small but that's because everything on it is delicious. Try this place and recommend it.

    55555 by Fernanda D.


  • Jane B.Overpriced wine ($15 for a glass of Kendall Jackson?), but great (and practically underpriced) entrees. It just feels weird to be charged $15 for a mediocre glass of wine and $17 for great duck breast

    33333 by Jane B.


  • Adam F.If menus were albums, Olea's is "Breakfasta Greatest Hits - No Substitutes". Without reservation the best French Toast I have devoured. Literally every item on the short, immutable menu is a winner.

    55555 by Adam F.


  • BKDon't wander even while waiting for your table -- they will assume you have given up and left!

    22222 by BK


  • Ben F.Get the French toast. No question.

    33333 by Ben F.


  • Dena N.Amazing Challah French toast!

    55555 by Dena N.


  • Jaya P.Get the Challa French Toast if you're in the mood for something sweet. If you get eggs don't forget to ask for their hot sauce; the chef makes a new one every week and I haven't been disappointed yet!

    55555 by Jaya P.


  • Johnny L.Everyone talks about the Challah French Toast. They're right.

    55555 by Johnny L.


  • Jonathan V.Brunch: egg sandwich! Don't deliberate. Just do it!

    55555 by Jonathan V.


  • Joannaif the French toast are on the menu (I believe they may be seasonal), GET THEM! they are delicious and you will not regret it.

    55555 by Joanna


  • Meghana D.The challah French toast is the thing to order here, but don't miss out on the veggie omelette (w brown rice) and the fresh squeezed orange juice. Grab a contraband coffee while you wait for a table

    55555 by Meghana D.


  • Brad T.I hate to jump on this bandwagon but yea, might be the best f.toast I've ever had. Well done Olea!

    55555 by Brad T.

    55555 by Sammie


  • jonathan g.While the eggs baked in a cazuela with tomato sauce, steamed farro spezzato, diced Niman Ranch applewood smoked ham and basil-almond pesto is a tried favorite, try the "challah custard toast".

    55555 by jonathan g.


  • Rachael C.The French toast is amazing. Chef makes his salsa from scratch daily & it's superb.

    55555 by Rachael C.


  • Lindsay S.Watch the chef in the kitchen. He makes everything with this quiet happy reverence. Like he is bathing a child.

    55555 by Lindsay S.

    55555 by Esme V.


  • Alexandra D.The French toast is amazing but if you crave savory, the veggie omlette is always great!

    55555 by Alexandra D.


  • Evelyn G.The chocolate pot de creme is fantastic - many layers of flavor. Order 2 if you have more than 3 in your party - they're small.

    55555 by Evelyn G.
