I had originally wanted to get breakfast at Mama's after hearing about it being a SF favorite. There is no way I was going to wait in that line! Went to Mo's nearby and was so glad I did. Great breakfast, really filling. I'd recommend it to anyone.

Mo's is spectacular. So fresh! Unique omelets. Terrific fruit cup. And of course, good coffee. Great way to start the day

This cute cafe had attracted my attention many times as I walked down Grant Avenue because you can see the chefs through the window cooking. I finally went there the last day I was in the city. Its a kitch looking place with the chefs cooking as you walk which I like , a seating bar and several tables. Its... More

After looking at the 2 hour long queue for The popular Mama's for breakfast we decided to go elsewhere and we were so glad we did. We didn't have to queue at Mo's (but there was a small 6 person queue when we left). Big tasty hearty breakfast, constant coffee topups and friendly service. What more could you want?

I got a burger and fries to go from here today and was underwhelmed. The fries were plentiful, but overcooked and bland. The burger was unexciting as well. It might have been better to eat in, but I won't be going back to find out.

Mo's is a San Fran, North Beach iconoclastic eatery. Breakfast and Burgers predominate the menu. Breakfast is served until 3pm. Their breakfast can easily sustain you until dinner. The portions are plentiful and the choices are highly varied and creative. The Burgers are a Cholesterol lovers dream. Big, juicy, great combinations. I had the Volcano Burger and it was decadent....

Their food is very good. We ordered a burger, club sandwich and a milkshake. Very good portions and reasonable price. It was pretty busy and they seem to be under staffed. We entered the place with no greeting at all as if the ambiance is a little snobbish. All tables were taken but the bar. We waited for a little... More

Stumbled on Mo's while looking for breakfast. Humble facade but large choice of burgers inside, and appealing smell. Had Mo's pulled pork, mmmmm.

A very pretty place for a burger-nothing special but good and generally not so busy. It's a good place for a light dinner, cheap and easy

Great BURGERS! fresh ground meat patty with just the right texture. Soft and chewy bun...and big enough that one is plenty! Fries are great too. Hear breakfast is just as good and saw a guy at the counter eating a fine plate at noon...so maybe served all day! I'll put up Mo's Burger against anybody else's fancier version like Marlowe'...
