We came to The Grind after a late night partying after the pride parade and as soon as we saw chicken fried steak for breakfast we were sold. It's a very casual spot where you order at the counter and the food comes to you, but the prices are really good and won't break the bank to start your day.... More

If youre looking for a great breakfast (that will keep you going through lunch) then stop at The Grind just off the corner of Haight and Scott. They make there own corned beef hash (ask them to crisp it up) and Joe's Scram is a delicious ground beef mixed with scrambled eggs and covered with American cheese. Be prepared to... More

My husband and I came to The Grind almost every day during our stay in SF. It was a quick walk down the street from our hotel (The Metro) and was a great place to start they day. Our favourite was the Granola, fruit and yoghurt bowl - a huge portion and absolutely delicious. I also liked the French toast... More

We were looking for a mixture of good food and atmosphere outside of the diners surrounding our downtown hotel. The Haight was our destination and we lucked out with The Grind. The food turned out to be stellar: fresh, hot, beautifully prepared and wholesome. The coffee was notable (coffee snob). It's not cheap food and it's good food. Good ingredients... More

Love stopping in here when visiting SF. I usually stay nearby, so it is a nice walk for food and/or their wonderful coffee. Perfect for breakfast, brunch or lunch! Homefries were perfect compliment to my scrambler. Omelettes are also awesome Did I mention the great coffee???

We really liked the pancakes and the eggs here. The coffee is good and the place is fun to sit in and people-watch. We would recommend it to anyone in the area.

This was just the thing after a fun night on the town. The scrambles here are delicious, the home fries made just right and the whole wheat toast was yummy. Good coffee too!

As others have said, it's a nice and spacious place with a fine variety of scrambles and omelettes for breakfast and sandwiches. There are even a few tables outside the shop to enjoy your coffee on a fine morning. I had their Sicilian omelet and it was OK. The only blemish is they shut down their WiFi on weekends. So... More

they crank out pretty good omlettes, sandwiches, burgers, coffee, desserts. Nothing will rock your world, but it's dependable and everything is fresh and fairly good.

Staying in Haight-Ashbury

Neighborhood Profile
Haight-Ashbury
The area surrounding the intersection of Haight and Ashbury streets, “The Haight” still exudes vibes of the 1960s counterculture as a haven for vintage clothes, music, pop posters and body piercing shops. While the Summer of Love ended decades ago, Haight-Ashbury has turned into a melting pot of hippies, hipsters, and professionals. Walking through its streets can still feel like stepping back in time. A must-see neighborhood for most music fans, it’s easy to see why these streets attracted the likes of the Grateful Dead and Janis Joplin. You’ll likely be content in The Haight day or night, just be sure to wear some flowers in your hair.
