This place has a excellent breakfast selection. It is in a great location in Union Square. Went there for dinner and it was good too. The service is very fast and friendly.

This is a wonderful old building with loads of character, the service was excellent - fast and very pleasant servers. The food was outstanding! We shared Swedish pancakes and an omelet. Would absolutely go back when in the area.

If you have to wait this one is well worth it !! Sears has been around a long time in San Francisco's union square. The food is great the selection is vast and the service is energized. The venue has the history hanging on the walls and will make you a little more wise to the old San Francisco's early... More

The service was average and not the friendliest at all. The food was good but not exceptional. It was ok for the center of SF and the price we paid. So if no other choice or no mood for great search it is ok, but there are definitely better places around.

The Sears Fine Food Restaurant on Powell St has been serving good American food in downtown San Francisco almost longer than I've been alive (I'm 68).

You will maybe pay a few dollars more here than other places but trust me the food, service and atmosphere are first class. I had a full meat omelette it was served with toast and was a great breakfast for $15. I would definitely be back should I return to SF.

If you want a traditional breakfast go here. It adjacent to Union Square and many of the hotels. It's not cheap but what is in California. It is reasonably priced and the food was good. Good Menu with lots of choice.

I'm not sure the draw here...maybe this place was great 20 years ago. The omelet was average and about what you would expect from a Denny's. There was no wait but we we're about 5 inches from the table next to us. Food was average. Service was average. Experience was average. See the trend...?? Bacon was very good
