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

I first ate at Kate's about 7 years ago. They have a great menu! I love the pancakes with fresh fruit and granola. You could share something here. the portions are really big.

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!
