Don't pass this one up

From the outside it doesn't look too great and on the inside the decor is worn but, the food is amazing! We stopped in for breakfast, pancakes were huge and fluffy, eggs and hashbrowns were cooked perfectly as well as the bacon.

The denver omelett, the fried eggs and hash browns are amazing. Comes with toast too. Coffee is real good and free refill. A very charming place serving great food. Pancakes are good too. Absolutely worth a visit.

Do not waste money on hotels that include breakfast. Eat your breakfast here. Amazing omelette and genuine environment and a variety of guests.

That placewas recommended to me by my friend who is living in SF for twenty years now. Crowd is made of locals who are reading the Chronicle. I had one of the specials, corn beef hash. Legendary! I came back there juste before living town as a goodbye to SF. You don't want to miss this place.

I am a European tourist always looking for the "authentic" American experience on my trips to the US. And yes, the Golden Coffee Shop is spot on. Greasy? Yes. Simple? Yes. Delicious? YES! What more can you ask from a breakfast joint that has barely 20 seats, a kitchen practically built into their customers' face, and definitely mom and pop... More

As others have reviewed this place to be a hole in the wall, I did not feel that way. Yes it's old but definitely not as dirty as some have mentioned. Good diner food for a great price. Quick and friendly service.

It's grubby, dated and greasy but the good is amazing! Husband cooks and wife is the server. Local hotel owner tipped us off about this place and we were dubious about going in and even more dubious when we got inside bit ended up having breakfast/brunch there everyday of our trip. Omelettes are amazing and are served with a fab... More

We had a great breakfast here, really good home cooked food in a shabby diner style. The bar stools face the workpit and you can watch your breakfast being cooked. I might be a bit of a snob, fair enough but if this place was located where I live it would be shut down for all the health and safety... More
