Just in time for the beginning of beach season, Breakers has opened its doors amid the Pacific breezes at Pacifica’s Rockaway Beach. The glass-enclosed dining room overlooking the sea provides brilliant views, but alas, with its daytime-only hours, you’ll have to go elsewhere for the sunset. The breakfast and lunch menus feature classics that make choosing a challenge. In the morning, there are 15 omelet options alone. Crepes, Belgian waffles, frittatas and even glazed carnitas pancakes are available. By lunch time, salads, sandwiches and burgers are served. Little details make Breakers a new local favorite: Smoothies include fresh fruit, the tuna and chicken salads are made in house, and coffee is from Peerless Roasters in Oakland.

The eatery’s name Which Wich explains the conundrum for diners: which sandwich to order? That’s not easy when there are more than 50 different customizable choices. Since its 2003 opening in Dallas, Which Wich has blossomed into one of the largest fast-casual sandwich franchises in the country. This is the second outpost on the Peninsula; the first is in Burlingame. Choose your sandwich based on meats or proteins _ or perhaps you’d like the Elvis with peanut butter, honey, banana and bacon? Those who want chicken have five choices to consider. Finally, select the type of bread, add-ons and size of your sandwich —you can get whatever you want.
