The proximity to north beach makes this a great alternative to Bubba Gumps or anything on pier 39. The fruit plate that is set at about $9 is totally worth it. The picture does not show how large it is. The raspberries were at peak ripeness and felt like you were eating candy. They close at 1:45 but seated people... More

After watching lines of people wait hours to get into this quiet little cafe from our hotel window we took the chance to go there! So happy we did. We had a party of 7 and waited only 20 min! The food was amazing and portion sizes are large. The fruit is fresh and lots of it! It is located... More

40 minute wait but previous reviews led us to believe and marvellous breakfast awaited. We were not disappointed - wide range, plenty of good fresh fruit, decent coffee and perfect service. The BIG downside was the state and position of the bathrooms. Two doors down, complex key codes to get in then a fairly horrible walk through dingy corridors to... More

It is a bit average in atomosphere. Glasses a bit dingy, and tables old diner tables, but the food was pretty good. We had sandwiches on chabata bread. The breakfast that was being served at other tables looked better. So might be better to eat the breakfast food.

The food is expensive but well worth it! Great coffee, hashbrowns, french toast, and the best part--a huge serving of fresh fruit. Possibly the best breakfast i've ever had.

I do not give 5 star ratings easily. For a restaurant, it means that not only would I go there again, but that I would consider eating there more than one time on a vacation. Honestly, the whole family thought there would be no reason to try anyplace else for breakfast while we were in San Francisco. I had the... More

Due to its justified popularity on Trip Advisor this cafe has queues down the road at 7.15am, but you will not find a better breakfast in San Francisco.

We had a lovely breakfast. Arrived at 8am and had a 20 minute wait. The staff weren't particularly welcoming and you felt like you were inconveniencing them by being a customer. Having said that the food was great and the coffee was kept topped up most of the time. Lovely portions of fruit. Make sure you look out for the... More

Thank you for the kind rating, Srikanth. Please know we use the highest quality ingredients which do cost slightly more but we hope our customers feel are worth it. Also, we're told our breakfasts cost significantly less than the hotels and are significantly better. More
