Hollywood Cafe serves a very hearty breakfast and the place was truly buzzing on a Sunday morning. We got there a little after 8:00am and there was already a wait for tables. The restaurant itself is quite small. You put your name and number in your party on a list and wait for your name to be called. While you... More

We were staying down the street at the Best Western and came here for breakfast. There were two of us moms, a 13 year old and 3 kids. As soon as we walked in they were incredibly rude telling us to move out of the way, giving us dirty looks. I told them our party size and they said they... More

Priya, please accept out apologies for how it sounds you were treated. That does not sound like us and as you can see from our high rating, at the very least it is highly unusual. We will look into this and make sure it doesn't happen again. More

High quality food, well prepared. The portions are very generous, especially the fruit that came with the breakfast platters...enough to make a meal in and of itself!

So good we came back every morning three days in a row. Great Service Great food Order off the front of the main menu. The dishes that come with the fruit. We learned after day one to split our order. You get plenty of food but it is good quality. You get a generous order of excellent sour dough bread.... More

What a fantastic little cafe. Food amazing and staff friendly and helpful. The service was so quick food very hot. A tip to go early for breakfast as we went a little later first day and you had to put your name down and wait for an outside table but even still we didn't wait long at all.

Great breakfast place - on Yelp they have a five-star rating and if I could give it more I would. Plates are big - you will definitely enjoy your breakfast here guaranteed. Mango Mimosa is delicious too.

Visited this restaurant on the recommendations from Tripadvisor. The breakfast dishes were very good, but I had to keep my eyes on the plate so I didn't look around at how filthy the restaurant was. Buckets of dirty rags sitting next to the front desk should have been our first clue.... Sorry, the food was good, but I wouldn't return... More

Hi Lisa, Thank you for the nice words about our food. We are glad you enjoyed it.Sorry to hear you felt the restaurant wasn't tidy. San Francisco does has restaurant inspections. Our most recent score was 90 of 100 so there are small areas we will continue to work on improving. Thanks again. More
