On the advice of a friend, I happened into this little corner diner with interior fittings dating back to at least the 1950's a couple of years ago for breakfast. (They do breakfast, lunch and ice cream treats.) I recently returned and found it just as comfortable and delicious. The retro decor and menu are fun. It is solid and... More

I struggled deciding because the menu had so many terrific options. I opted for heuvos rancheros and they were very tasty. The servers were nice, the interior is authentic, and it's clearly a very popular place. My only recommendation is that they have some more delicious coffee options. My coffee was very diner .... tolerable. Regardless, I love this place.

I have to start this review off by saying I've only eaten at this restaurant on two occasions so this review will only be based on a couple of visits. I've also only had breakfast here. My first visit was a really great experience. The breakfast I ordered was prepared perfectly and I enjoyed everything I ordered. Service was good,... More

When you step inside it's deja vu (at least to anyone over 60). A real soda fountain where they prepare real ice cream sodas and also have some of the best grilled egg/cheese sandwiches on planet earth. A local eatery in the Mission District of San Francisco where the locals go for a real comfort food meal. The menu is... More

Crispy fried potatoes generous portions, vegan choices, banana bread included as toast, good coffee, What's not to like? A coat of paint would be great without destroying the original details.

This place was a fountain for many years, and still sells sodas and shakes, but it's mainly a vegan/vegetarian resturant still trying to masquerade as an old fashioned fountain/diner. They need to change their name. Went there for breakfast and ordered sausage and biscuits. They said the biscuits were homemade, but they would have been better off using Pillsbury. The... More

A diner with a true authentic look, old signage even. The ice cream is delicious and a chance to get local color.
