I would probably never have tried this place if it weren't for trip advisor, but man am I glad I did! I ordered the Hawaiian Omlet and my wife got the oatmeal. Both orders came out hot, fast and tasty. It was the perfect start to the day!

Hollywood Cafe is a top quality place for breakfast! The servers were quick, polite, attentive, and made you feel welcomed. They had a good selection of hot and cold drinks that you would expect at a nice cafe. The food was very good as well, and the portions don't leave anyone hungry. I have eaten there several times now and... More

We had breakfast here twice on our recent trip to San Francisco and it was excellent both times. We snuck into the last open table on our first visit and had to wait about 5 minutes on our second time in. It is small and tightly packed inside, and they have 6 or 7 tables outside as well. The service... More

We ate here twice: the breakfast was absolutely excellent with healthy food options. The fresh fruit bowl was so great enough to share. Hugh amount of food, thick sourdough bread excellent, fresh squeezed orange juice (expensive $3 per glass). Very friendly staff and food comes out quickly even though the place in packed. Indoor and outdoor seating. A must stop... More

Wanted to try something different and we decided to stop here. They are a breakfast / lunch diner and they close at 1:45 and we showed up at 1:20. No worries. We ordered a couple of burgers, a sloppy joe and a BLT. Burger patties were nice and thick, the BLT was huge with tons of bacon and my sloppy... More

Wow, what a perfect restaurant for breakfast. The restaurant itself is small (you might even say "a hole in the wall" but any line-ups go fast. The food is prepared & presented with all the flair of a 5 star upscale restaurant. Go at least once so you can brag to your friends

I love it when tripadvisor steers me to a great place, and Hollywood Cafe is definitely one of those places. Hubby enjoyed Hawaiian omelette while I ate the James Dean breakfast. As far as the frequently mentioned fruit bowl, it truly is scrumptious as well.
