Both visits for breakfast were very enjoyable. The vanilla french toast with the butterscotch drizzle is a must-eat! The pieces are so large, you can share between 2 people. They are perfectly crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. The special hashbrowns are stuffed full of deliciousness, but if you're not a fan of mushrooms, order them without,... More

I had the lemon ricotta pancakes with strawberry coulis. It's the best pancake I've ever had. Light and fluffy with just a hint of lemon breakthrough good. Ate outside in the sun. Great service. We loved it!

Stumbled upon this little Vietnamese/French breakfast & brunch joint while out for a late Sunday morning walk. Busy, loud, full of young techie people (we were by far the oldest in the place), it was exciting.... and delicious. We had tartines (French style open sandwiches - on sourdough bread, of course), which we greatly enjoyed with the excellent coffee. Quick... More

This is a definite leave, food was okay but when you consider all the awesome options available in SF, this was a memorable experience for all the wrong reasons. Percolated coffee with over frothed milk does not equal a latte, our coffees remained virtually untouched, despite speaking with management, the two coffees remained on the bill. Not a great ambience... More

Good ,tasty breakfast choices and prompt, polite service. This place is usually busy and it deserves to be. The good reviews can definitely be believed. Highly recommend the 6 hour corned beef hash and the chive potato pancake !

Choose carefully, and you'll have a much better than average experience. My bf had the lemon ricotta pancakes...these don't work but although we were underwhelmed, it might work for others. I had some nice poached eggs, bacon and toast. Good point is that they do provide squeezed juice (not from concentrate)

Hi Jellie. The lemon ricotta pancakes are one of our most popular dishes but they aren't for everyone. On the plus side we are happy to hear you enjoyed the rest of your meal. Thank you for the visit and we hope to see you again one day soon. More

We used to do breakfast at a well frequented tourist restaurant, before we found this gem! It's on California Street off Van Ness and easy to get to. It was neat, clean, the service was great and the food was wonderful! We are coming back every time we are in the City!

Our hotel recommended this restaurant for breakfast. There was a line and we weren't sure we wanted to wait but the locals on the line said it was really worth it. Suggested we go get coffee around the corner while we waited. I love lemon ricotta pancakes and these were the best -- they call them soufflé pancakes and are... More

Well worth the wait. Food was great and a definite two meals in one. The house favourite and french toast were both delicious. Service was friendly though they had a definite urge to get us in and out again. You can understand why though and the service definitely wasn't bad. Don't miss out on this fabulous place for brunch.
