Little Skillet follows a simple formula of quality ingredients, friendly service, and good value.

Established in 2008, as the lovable lunch offshoot of soul-favorite farmerbrown, owners, and partners in crime, Jay Foster and Deanna Sison Foster, took the tiny kitchen in the fabled SOMA alley, and turned it into a factory of homespun Southern classics and comfort dishes. 

The little window, still beckons the neighborhood with scents of fresh waffles and hot fried chicken, and the SoMa locals loyally line up at lunch to get their fix.


In January of 2014, Little Skillet opened a food counter within neighboring bar, Victory Hall & Parlor, where work crowds happily gather over craft beer, cocktails, & crispy chicken well into the night.  The addition of brunch on the weekends, was a natural evolution, completing the daily offerings to the community, 7 days a week.
