One of the great simple pleasures of traveling abroad is stumbling upon a restaurant frequented by locals, followed closely by bathing in gelato and loudly explaining why everything in America is better. Replicate that feeling with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $20 for brunch (up to a $40 value), which includes two entrees and two mimosas

The menu of relaxed and inventive Italian includes bacon-wrapped medjool dates, a baked frittata made with organic eggs, marinated artichoke hearts, sun-dried tomatoes, and goat cheese, and a caprese panini. Brunch hours are 11 a.m.–2 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
Dolce & Salato Bar Italiano
Dolce & Salato’s chefs strike a delicate balance between Italian charm and Californian sustainability, drawing from a palette of in-season ingredients culled from local vendors to orchestrate a menu inspired by the entrenched culinary traditions of Northern Italy. The café proves ideal for a quick cappuccino break, a leisurely breakfast, or a lunch paired with a glass of Italian beer or wine. Flowerboxes and sidewalk tables situate patrons in prime people-watching positions at the Presidio Heights location, which also hosts a wood-paneled dining area bathed in light that radiates from garden windows and the friendly wait staff’s smiles.
