Great food, worth the wait

We had to queue to get into this pace on a Saturday morning but the food was fantastic- well worth the wait. This is not a fancy brunch establishment but an authentic short order café.

The food was great and the service but the smoke was bad. I'm considering contacting the health and safety department. All that smoke can't be good for staff or patrons. They really need better fan and ventilation system.

There was a wait to get in, but the waitress was great about moving people in and out. Some unique breakfast choices, along with the standards. All done very well.

Had the chicken fried steak with grits and biscuits. It was very good. I was quite impressed to find southern food in California done so well. We arrived here between breakfast and lunch so there were some empty seats but the line soon backed up as people waited to come in. Definitely a nice little place to eat. Come between... More

We went to this restaurant for breakfast before we went biking across the Golden Gate Bridge. They have a very good selection of breakfast items, the omelettes were really good as well as their fried hash browns and warm bisquits. Kind of an old school diner with bar stools in front of the grill. The bathroom could use a good... More

This little restaurant is known for his delicious breakfasts and indeed, we tried it and were not disappointed. Very nice and big American breakfast. Eggs, meat, fries, french toast ... perfect to start a big day at San Francisco. We got hungry only in the late afternoon. The waitress was in a hurry, and not very friendly. After a while... More

After walking the neighborhood, I was a little skeptical about eating anyway, but this seemed to have locals. Great breakfast (we had it for lunch). A little bit of a squeeze for groups.

Delicious food but they should invest some of their cash profits into glassware, utensils, and chairs. It was a turnoff and the chipped plastic glasses are probably a health code violation! However, the open grill area was clean and the chow was great, so we got over it.

My husband enjoyed the "birds in a tasty nest" breakfast that comes as a large portion of food. I had the delicious chicken sausage breakfast with nicely crunchy hash browns. Service was excellent; they kept the good coffee coming! Oddly enough, we were disappointed that they were out of toast and substituted a biscuit which was not special at all.... More

Great food! And a really cool place. My wife and I ate a spectacular breakfast and coffee. I had the deluxe huevos ranchero it's a most have.

Staying in Haight-Ashbury

Neighborhood Profile
Haight-Ashbury
The area surrounding the intersection of Haight and Ashbury streets, “The Haight” still exudes vibes of the 1960s counterculture as a haven for vintage clothes, music, pop posters and body piercing shops. While the Summer of Love ended decades ago, Haight-Ashbury has turned into a melting pot of hippies, hipsters, and professionals. Walking through its streets can still feel like stepping back in time. A must-see neighborhood for most music fans, it’s easy to see why these streets attracted the likes of the Grateful Dead and Janis Joplin. You’ll likely be content in The Haight day or night, just be sure to wear some flowers in your hair.
