The best breakfast we had whilst on our holiday to California. Great food and mountains of beautiful fresh fruit accompanied each of our meals. Make sure to get there early though as queued out the door by 7:30am!

This place is great! Was in San Fran for 3 days and it was so good the first time went back a second. Hollywood hash browns are yummy! Sweet bacon... Mmmmmm. Staff was friendly. Even gave me coffee to go!

Ate here 2 times during a recent stay. Great spot, usually a long line but not a long wait for a party of 2. We had french toast ala Marilyn Monroe, meat lovers omelette and salmon benedict. Everything comes out beautiful, hot and delicious. The yummy fresh fruit is piled on the french toast so high, you wouldn't even know... More

Its an ok place and the portions are huge, but its mostly fruit. The food itself is ok, but nothing significant, so if you are heading for a culinary experience in nice surroundings this is not your place. I wonder why it has so many excellent reviews, I think it is because you get alot of food for your money... More

Thank you for trying us Johnoc83. You are right, we aren't a European-style breakfast and those are delicious too but not necessarily our style. We just do the big, standard American breakfast with some interesting twists. More

We got to Hollywood Cafe soon after it opened on a Sunday morning and were surprised to see that it was already crowded, though luckily no wait for us. Shortly after we sat down, the cafe was packed with a loooooooong wait - rightfully so...the breakfast we each had (eggs, bacon, hashbrowns, toast) was outstanding and tasted very fresh. The... More

Great place. Great atmosphere! Excellent capaccio...although after tryibg it I think I could have eaten it all by myself. The only thing the place misses is desserts but every place around had them so no biggy.

Great location on near Fisherman's Wharf. Good service, too. I didn't have to wait since I got there early, however, the lines did form later, particularly since the weather was great.

Had breakfast 3 days in a row and it was out of this world! A good variety of options and the hash browns are the best ever! The fresh fruit was delicious and the portions very generous. Definitely a highlight of our trip to San Francisco.

Due to jet lag and location of staying at nearby Tuscan Hotel we were up early and got in easily by 8am. There are queues but not excessive (go in and write your own name down on the list). We had breakfast there for 2 mornings and it was exceptional and large. Hash browns, pancakes, fruit and bacon all recommended.... More

Highly recommend this cafe for breakfast. I had poached eggs, toast Nashville's & the fruit bowl, my husband had the omelette. Fantastic size portions, even boxed up the fruit to take with us during the day. Staff are friendly, and efficient. Get there early as there can be a huge Que waiting to be seated.
