Stopped in for an awesome lunch while exploring Haight-Ashbury. Despite the name, there were awesome vegetarian and vegan options. The biscuits were killer as well. We had no trouble getting a table on a weekday around noon, but I can see how this place gets packed on the weekends.

This was my 2nd visit to this small breakfast diner in the heart of Haight Ashbury. It's a must stop for all you ageing hippies who return or visit to see where it all began,(at least in part) It's very small with limited seating and it fills up quickly. It's all overseen under the masterful watch of Amanda who somehow... More

This place is very small, maybe 6-8 tables. We sat at the counter, as the tables were all taken. I'm glad we did as we got to watch a master short order cook in action. I had bacon, eggs and hot cakes, all delicious and cooked to perfection. The over easy eggs had just the right amount of runniness (hard... More

The food here was excellent!! It was very difficult to decide what to order, as everything looked amazing! We would definitely eat here again when in town.

My family and I love this little breakfast café. The waitress was prompt and very very friendly. We visited on a weekday so it wasn't crowded at all. It's very small but the food is excellent and the portions are large. Great value for breakfast on one of the most interesting streets in America!!

The food was absolutely delicious. My boyfriend had the 2 eggs in a tasty nest and I kept eating his food! The French toast was amazing.

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

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.
