There are set times for the buffet to start and we were booked at 10am along with many others. So standing at the door waiting in line whilst the girl called out people's names that were... More

I had a great Mahi sandwich and my husband had the french toast and enjoyed his meal too. We didn't have a reservation so we had to wait but I had... More

The cliffhouse /sutro district is eerie and dreamy. We went on a foggy morning may 2014 and had breakfast at the cliffhouse. We initially made the trip to that side of SF to see the sutro baths but once we saw the beautiful cliffhouse restaurant we couldn't pass it up. We had breakfast by the window to the sound of...

You cannot beat the location. The view is phenomenal and if you have time a walk around the grounds of this historic site is worth it.
