a great start to the day

Always a line but it moves fast. The food is fresh and delicious. They have a lunch menu but we only went for breakfast....every day for 3 days. The service is great and very the staff is friendly. When you get there be sure to go straight in and sign your name on the wait list then go back out... read more

I visited here 2 years ago and was one of my favorites. I love to find smaller restaurants for breakfast. The service was great and food was just as good. I got there about 7:15AM and it was already full inside. I wanted to sit outside and got a table out front right away. After 15 minutes and a cup... More

I had read the reviews, looked at the photos of Hollywood Cafe million times before our visit to SF. I was very excited about having a breakfast at this cafe and as soon as we woke up in our first morning in the city, we directly headed there. Even though it was 7:20 a.m, there was a queue but we...

Tried here on our first day in San Fran so we were there before the 7am opening, the place was full barring one table by 7:07 though. Food was lovely, fruit bowl comes overflowing so expect to be full!

Had an early breakfast before our Alcatraz tour. I would suggest getting there early as it is a small place and there was a line- however they are extremely efficient and fast with their service. Our omlettes were outstanding with a huge bowl of fresh fruit. I would highly recommend Hollywood Cafe!!

Hugely popular for breakfast we found. There is a queue outside for those waiting to eat but you do need to go indoors and add yourself to the list. Pancakes, omelettes - good menu, generous portions and good atmosphere. Recommend

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.
