A really good breakfast

I had the short stack of the blue corn pancakes, they were so good! Be super hungry if you decide to go with the full stack, the pancakes aren't heavy so it's possible to finish it they are that good! My husband had the pumpkin/chocolate chip french toast and he really enjoyed all of it!

Wow!! We love this place. Came back every morning on our trip to San Francisco. Big plates!!! Good price! Coffee as much as you can drink. The granola with fruits and the pancakes with whatever you like are extremely good! Definitely go to this place!

Let me first say, this was my favorite breakfast in the city, and one of my top places to re visit! This is a CASH only restaurant!! That being said, it's affordable, (7-10 bucks get's you a lot of food). I would recommend splitting, if you don't want to over eat, because I know I did. I got a special... More

It is really hard to choose what to eat at Kate's because everything on the menu looks amazing. My fiancee, Jill, and I have just returned from 1.5 years in Beijing and when our friend, Leslie, suggested we eat at Kate's, we were excited and couldn't wait. It took a bit of time to get seated, since it was Saturday... More

I was sitting in Kate's noticing the looks on folks looking in the window trying to decide to come in. Go in! Foods great. Excellent service. San Francisco throw back neighborhood; kind of seedy but shopping worthy. Up towards the park it gets less seedy but Kate's is in the middle of it. I had the hash. Excellent! Big food... More

If I knew I'd have one meal left before I died, I'd go here for the French Toast Orgy. A pile of delicious orange spice french toast topped with granola, yogurt, fruit and honey has powered many of my long San Francisco hikes without the usual food coma following a huge breakfast. The coffee is delightful, and they now even... More

Went here for a late breakfast on a non busy weekday morning. The food was excellent! The service was very friendly. The only downside I saw was that there was too selection that it is hard to decide which meal to order as well as the potential for this place to be packed on the weekends.

We went here for brunch, the portions were massive, the staff friendly and to top it off it was good value. The location is a bit random, it's just a bit away from Haight/Ashbury, probably about a 10 minute walk but there are some nice shops around, it's right next door to the weed shop if that helps! It was... More

This restaurant is a fun and funky place to enjoy a unique but fantastic breakfast. Lots of vegan/veggie options as well. Very small place, so there may be a wait.

Kate's on Haight off of Market, great breakfast hole in the wall, i like it way way better than Mama's the one in the books for breakfast in SF. The cornmeal buttermilk pancake with ginger peach topping is great. But the Fennel or something like that hash which is their Cornbeef hash is the way to go, or better get... More
