Did not have breakfast in our hotel as it was very expensive, took cable car to Bay street and found Pats Café. Very easy going place and food is homely, tasty and great value for money.

Cafe is adorable with excellent, freshly made fare and local artwork. Note: As the menu states, you might need to wait a bit longer for the food to come out. Truly made to order. And the added bonus: As we were near closing time, our waiter gave me an extra splash of cabernet post-check!

Cool little locals spot for breakfast. Great selection to suit all tastes. Not very big, so there can be a wait sometimes, but love the legal pad where you sign yourself in and then wait for your table. The banana granola pancakes are awesome, as are the various egg oriented dishes. Mama's has the "best of SF" moniker going for... More

Great breakfast, friendly staff and slightly old school atmosphere. Deserves to be up there in the best that SF has for pre 10am food

Nothing fancy about this cute little place that seats only about 30 people. We had a table for 4 and got the egg burrito and the SF omelette and the Calif omelette and the hash. All were tasty and well prepared. The service was prompt and friendly. Prices reasonable, too. There are more elegant places for breakfast or brunch but... More

Spend our Bi-annual San Francisco visit around the corner on Columbus Ave., Pat's was recommended by the Hotel counter person. He steered us right! My wife had the Veggie Omelet and she thought it was one of the best she's ever had. She ordered the fruit instead of the Home Fries, all fresh! Strawberry's, Blue Berry's and Banana. I had... More

Staying in North Beach / Telegraph Hill

Neighborhood Profile
North Beach / Telegraph Hill
The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian ristorante come together to create the charming neighborhood of North Beach, once the stomping grounds for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of North Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always suitable for younger visitors, few neighborhoods in the city exude as much European charm and style. Peruse a bookstore for the literature of Kerouac, Ferlinghetti and Ginsberg, grab some gelato and head to Washington Square for a perfect afternoon of people watching. Just east of North Beach, the hills and staircases of Telegraph Hill are a unique delight. At its peak, the art deco Coit Tower provides sweeping panoramic views of the bay and city. The beautifully landscaped Filbert Street Steps, a street too steep for a roadway, rewards those willing to hike uphill. Keep your ears open and you might even hear the squawk of the wild parrots who call this neighborhood home.
