This was a fantastic American style brunch. I had the French toast which was wonderful although huge. My partner had the huevos with pulled pork that was also amazing. They don't do things by halves here - the mimosas were also enormous! The service was excellent and overall this was a brilliant spot for brunch in San Francisco.

Bit of a hipster joint but nothing to complain about really. Went here for a late breakfast... Left our name on the list and waited not too long out the front in the sunshine until we were called. We were seated on a long table across from each other as were the other couples - which does make it a... More

We waited over an hour, so bring something to read. But it was worth the wait! Try their mimosa's and their french toast is really good. My friend ordered the mushroom ommlette and I ordered the scramble with veggies. Everything was delicious :)

The people at the cafe were very friendly and accommodating. The food was delicious and the decor of the restaurant very pleasant. I would highly recommend starting your day here with some delicious scrambled eggs and a French toast.

Had dinner with a large group. I made the reservation over the phone with Bill. The service was excellent! Every detail was taken care of. One single waitress managed the group seamlessly. The food was delicious, very tasty, great presentation, large portions. The vegetarian flat bread was delicious. Highly recommend it!

I've been here for brunch, which is totally excellent… but dinner was great! The main course was large enough to keep me full, and saved just enough for the dessert. The friendly waiter was right, save room for dessert, as the sour cherry pie was to kill for! totally delicious. Wine selection was not bad for a small cafe. And... More

We ate here with another couple on a Saturday night. The restaurant was completely full, fortunately we had made reservations. We shared two appetizers, a beet salad and a lettuce salad. Both were very good but we should have probably ordered two of each given the portion size. We then ordered an entree apiece. Two of us had the rabbit... More

This cafe was recommended by a local. We went and had the most amazing brunch I think I've ever had. If you like mushrooms they have a mushroom Benedict to die for. They also have pancakes that are out of this world. You may have to wait a few minutes for a table but it is definitely a worthwhile wait.... More

We went there for a Saturday brunch today. There were lots of people waiting outside at 10:30am. However, it seems that most groups are parties of 2. We were a party of 3 and we waited about 10 minutes, so it wasn't too bad. We ordered mushroom egg benedict, crab and bay shrimp egg benedict, side of bacon, one side... More
