A Taste of Southern Hospitality

I had been here before with friends, and was able to finally take my wife this morning. Their food is plentiful and wonderful, a destination worth seeking in the Haight!

Our group of five went here for breakfast/brunch for the first time. All of us were thrilled with our meals. Food was delicious and plentiful, prices were very reasonable, and service was efficient and friendly (despite the fact that the place was packed). Only downside was the high noise level, which I guess was unavoidable given the small size of... More

Ate breakfast here twice on a recent visit to San Francisco. As other reviewers have said, the breakfasts really are great. Home-made, tasty food, generous portions - all absolutely delicious. Only one negative - the queue at the weekend!

During a recent week long stay in SF, we ate breakfast here twice, and the breakfast is fabulous. There are some creative twists on standard breakfast fare, and everything that we had was outstanding. I loved the coffee which has a touch of chicory. Having gone to school for eight years in New Orleans, I recognized the flavor immediately. The... More

We were staying round the corner on Laussat Street and looking for a breaķfast spot when we stumbled across Kate's Kitchen. Lovely idiosyncratic interior and food to match - epic corned beef hash full of all sorts of veggies, the huge and gorgeous french toast orgy and also the novelty for us as Brits of pumpkin French toast. One very... More

We went here because out UBER drive recommended it. We also found a groupon too. The place was not clean. There were fruit flies bothering us while we ate. Burger was okay. Fried chicken was okay. The staff was very friendly and attentive

Another little spot for a great breakfast! Their homemade corned beef hash looks like a New England stew with big chunk of carrots, potatoes, and generous corned beef... All nicely seasoned and heaped on a platter covered with eggs to order. I had the eggs Benedict with a twist.. Served with carmelized onions and wild mushrooms along with the poached... More

This place is fab, it's where the locals go, which I love as hate following the tourist traps...the place was packed at 9:30am in a Saturday, this is a good sign and we thankfully didn't have to wait for a table. The drinks available are great, lovely juices homemade with stunning flavour, I had the beauty, which was strawberries, blueberries... More
