Hayes Valley wine bar Fig & Thistle had a recurring weekend guest this past summer, a pop-up Australian brunch proprietor called Poppy, helmed by Delfina veterans Jessica Sullivan and Laurel Robinson. The concept lasted from mid-April until late June, serving fruit-topped waffles, eggs over succotash, fried green tomato sandwiches, pastries, and more.


Now the team behind that pop-up Poppy has some news to share.

The Chronicle reports Poppy will be opening a permanent brick-and-mortar restaurant at 18th and Harrison Streets, in the former home of Vietnamese pho spot Evergreen Garden. According to the Chronicle’s report, much of the previous menu will carry over to the new permanent Poppy.

“There are obviously some amazing brunch options in San Francisco but we think there’s an opportunity there and want to push that forward,” Poppy co-founder Jessica Sullivan told the Chronicle. Citing extravagant brunch plates all priced at under $20, she sees Poppy’s new incarnation as “like [Los Angeles’] Sqirl but more indulgent.”
