If you are staying in the fisherman's wharf area, do not skip breakfast at the Hollywood cafe. GET THE FRUIT BOWL or THE BREAKFAST SALAD. or get anything with fruit on the side. 9 people in our group and all had a great meal. This meal could not have been better.

Fantastic breakfast! We loved it so much we came back twice. Portions were enormous and very tasty. Loved the fruit with breakfast - very colourful, appealing and healthy! Worth going and being patient waiting for table. Staff are very friendly and helpful.

Good food. Not too long of a wait. Restaurant was packed. Ordered the B.A.T (bacon, avocado, tomato) 3 egg scramble. Came out HUGE (looked more like 5 eggs) with a giant hash brown and plenty of fresh fruit. Didn't even finish half of my plate! Would come back here if I'm in the area.

Make sure the service staff understands your order. They are usually very busy and always in a hurry. Line ups after 08:00, and one almost feels like they are hurryin you along.

This restaurant was close to our hotel, and when I saw it I knew I had to try it out for breakfast. Such a cute place and the decor is great. The breakfast was delicious! My girls and I shared two pancake combo plates. The fruit bowl that comes with the meals looked great and tasted great. We didn't have... More

Read the reviews for this place on Yelp, they where highly rated so we walked from our hotel for breakfast. There was a line of around 15 people ahead of us, which seemed like allot. I asked one of the waters and he said it was slow for a Monday morning! You write your name on a list and they... More

I stopped here for lunch after a 9am-1pm Grayline bus tour and was a little skeptical. I figured it was too close to the tour office to be any good, catering to those people who were doing the tour only. Boy was I pleasantly surprised. The sandwiches were wonderful, my son had pancakes that were great, but most of all... More

I must say that before we decided on this place, we had already eaten at 3 different restaurants here in SF and we weren't too excited about the cost of eating at each place so we contemplated on whether or not to hit up a Denny's or IHOP. Well, this place was worth it. Its such a nice and cozy... More

Saw all the hype on this little spot and we thought we'd try it. The hype is for real. We came early - 7am. No wait. Great food and service. We split Dolce French Toast and some hash browns. Trying to stay away from carbs, but couldn't resist. Fruit was fresh and delish. Feeling guilty - so we are walking... More
