We discovered this breakfast cafe nearby our hotel on Fisherman's Wharf and ended up coming back everyday. The food was THAT good. Everything is made fresh to order but the turnaround time bringing it to your table is so fast that you'll be amazed. Even when busy, they're quite quick. They offer a varied menu and many meals include a... More

If I had rated this restaurant on our first 2 days, it would've gotten a perfect rating. During the 5 days we ate there, they changed their ways of doing things. In the beginning, you had your choice of types of toast (wheat, sourdough, etc.) The bacon was wonderfully crisp. On the 3rd day, they went to this weird baguette... More

We ate breakfast here almost everyday. Tried somewhere else and it just wasn't a patch on hollywoods. The breakfast here is very tasty. There is sometimes a line but it's worth the short wait. The line just proves it is a great breakfast.

We had heard about the Hollywood Cafe and decided to give it a try. We are so glad we did. The food was great, the cafe is unpretentious and basic but the service was excellent. If you are staying in the fisherman's wharf area, you have to give it a try. I felt sorry for the cafe next door. It... More

We ate at the Hollywood Cafe on a Thursday morning at 10:00 and still had to wait for a table. Not a long wait, but clearly the word is out that this place is great! Huge portions, very fresh. There were five of us and everyone was completely satisfied. The Hollywood hash browns were something unique and delish. Orange French... More

We stumbled in as breakfast at the Hyatt Fishermans Wharf was a little pricey for the five of us. Glad we did. The eggs Benedict were fabulous, for and extra buck I substituted the fresh fruit in lieu of hash browns and was amazed at the fresh berries, pineapple and melon. The rest of the family had eggs and hash... More

This small-ish, unpretentious place serves an AMAZING breakfast! We ate there 3 times during our visit and each meal was consistently great. The fresh fruit bowl contains 10-12 types of really fresh fruit, not just the standard melon/cantelope/grapes melange. All the food is cooked to order. Portions are extremely generous - you won't go away hungry. Prices are very reasonable... More

This place has a great location right between the cable car stop and Fisherman's Warf. It has a great atmosphere and outdoor seating for those sunny days. We tried the pancaces, grilled croissant, egg & bacon and bagel and everything was yummi. If we had discovered this place earlier we would eaten here more often.
