Hollywood Cafe lives up to it''s Trip Advisor ratings! We have a couple other SF breakfast favorites but this was close to our hotel and the waterfront...sure glad we tried it!!! We had enough great food to have a lunch too. Went back two days in a row. Probably the best part was the excellent service...coffee cups never went dry... More

This place is amazing. The omelets are spectacular and the fruit bowl is huge, fresh and wonderful. It would be easy to split one breakfast between two. Your coffee cup never gets past half empty. This will be my go-to place every time I visit San Francisco.

Be prepared for long lines but it is totally worth it (lines move fast as well). Got rancheros style eggs with Hollywood hash. Amazing! Coffee was great as well. By the looks of the French toast and fresh fruit dishes around me, you can't go wrong with anything off the menu. Service was on point to top it off. Easily... More

a must have, delicious breakfast, you will see a huge line up of people and might be discouraged as we were. However, if you have the time this is the place to go. Amazing mugs of coffee and beautiful pancakes and waffles, this place has the most fruit you have ever seen, not sure you can eat it all!

We arrived at 7:45, and waited for 15 minutes to get a seat. This just goes to show how popular the restaurant is, and with good reason! The food was amazing, and arrived so quickly. Plenty of fresh fruit along with the omelette and hash brown that I ordered. Happy servers who clearly enjoy what they do. Definitely worth a... More

Just a tip - if one of you orders something that comes with a fruit bowl - the other person should get a piece of toast. There is so much gorgeous fruit that comes with the meal!!

Just got back from the Hollywood Cafe. Wow! What a breakfast. My wife and I decided what we were going to eat before we got in the door - just looking at the diners' meals who were sitting outside told us we were in for a treat. My wife had the poached eggs on salad, I had the shrimp and... More

Turned up at about 11.00 hrs, Waited about five minutes to be seated despite there being numerous tables available. Hanving ordered the food came very quickly. Service was quick, efficient and impersonal. I ordered the Marilyn Monroe. The large croissant was stuffed with scrambled eggs and plenty of diced bacon, to salty for my liking, and no it was more...
