Best American diner experience

Despite a 30 minute wait, this was the best breakfast I've had in a very long time. Their french toast is amazing. A bit prizy, but totally worth it.

Delicious food with large portions. Try the fruit salad to share and the fresh bread with every meal.

Amazing breakfast food which is worth the wait in the line you will encounter if you get there any later than 07:45 hrs. The queue is well-organised and well-monitored however so that stress levels do not rise. You sign your name on the list inside and wait to be called. Service is quick and friendly and you certainly won't need... More

Had breakfast here twice, so much better than the hotel and less expensive. If you come at the main breakfast time you need to be prepared to wait at least 30 min for a table.

This is our first morning in the city and since we are running on East Coast time, it was easy to be first in line when the restaurant opened at 7 am. The menu offered plenty of great things for all tastes. A nice childrens menu too. For a family of five, we all picked different things, and it came... More

My husband found this on TripAdvisor so thought we'd give it a go. It was worth it. We arrived around 9am and there was a bit of a queue but it wasn't long (10-15 mins) before we got a table (When you arrive, go inside & write name down on list to be seated and wait outside). The food was... More

While vacationing in the area we stumbled upon this gem. After reading the TripAdvisor reviews we decided to give it a try. With a smile, our waitress took our orders and promptly delivered the fresh, hot food. The four of us were extremely pleased with our food. Portions were healthy sized and could be shared by two people especially the... More

The proximity to north beach makes this a great alternative to Bubba Gumps or anything on pier 39. The fruit plate that is set at about $9 is totally worth it. The picture does not show how large it is. The raspberries were at peak ripeness and felt like you were eating candy. They close at 1:45 but seated people... More

After watching lines of people wait hours to get into this quiet little cafe from our hotel window we took the chance to go there! So happy we did. We had a party of 7 and waited only 20 min! The food was amazing and portion sizes are large. The fruit is fresh and lots of it! It is located... More

40 minute wait but previous reviews led us to believe and marvellous breakfast awaited. We were not disappointed - wide range, plenty of good fresh fruit, decent coffee and perfect service. The BIG downside was the state and position of the bathrooms. Two doors down, complex key codes to get in then a fairly horrible walk through dingy corridors to... More
