Good news for Dolores Park-goers and fans of all-day breakfast sandwiches. Bandit, the self-proclaimed best breakfast sandwich maker in San Francisco, is set to open its third outpost at 499 Dolores Street on September 24. The restaurant will be open 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. with expanded hours to follow in the coming weeks. Tablehopper reports the menu will be much like the Dogpatch location and original Tenderloin shop — think over-the-top pork patty breakfast sandwiches, but new drinks are inbound for the new location.
Adorned in a fresh yellow and white paint job, the location on the corner of 18th and Dolores streets has seen a bit of turnover in the preceding years. From 2012 to 2019 the space belonged to Namu Gaji, until the team outgrew the space and turned the location into a Namu Stonepoint. Then the business closed in 2021 for good. No matter, as Bandit opened its Dogpatch location in March to great success and the prime corner looks ideal for egg-stuffed, caramelized onion-oozing sammies.
