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.

You will see from the line outside why this restaurant qualifies as the 3rd best in San Francisco because its long and the waiting can be far longer than half the hour. The restaurant does not serve for dinner and runs only until 2 pm, what means is not a viable option for a late lunch. But the breakfast, anyone... More

Visited the Hollywood Cafe in August 2014. There was a line up but don't let it deter you. Their food is served quickly and the wait is not a long one. There is seating inside and outside. We were seated outside, which was lovely. Everyone who worked there was friendly,pleasant and helpful. The food was out of this world good.... More
