Decent Food

We had breakfast here. Was good. Not always easy to find a place, where you don't have a cholesterol shock after eating. Would go there again.

We visited this a few times for breakfast during our stay. Just next door to our hotel. Small venue, but the food and service was always excellent. Worth a visit, no cheap thou!

Ive been coming to this quaint little cafe for over 12 years now for breakfast. Ive found it to be the best kept secret for breakfast in sanfrancisco. Staff are really friendly. Cafe not too big so you need to get there early at peak times. Price- well worth it! Eggs Benedict amazing! Home fried potato's are also great. My... More

We'd arrived in Frisco that evening and needed something close to the hotel that didn't involve too much struggling up an incline. We settled for the very American burgers and fries, rather than any of the Italian food on offer. The burgers were good, filled a gap and were bigger than we're used to, so they filled us up. This...

We stopped by this restaurant many times (near cable car stop) and it was always busy, so on returning from a long walk around the city we stopped in for a late lunch. Very impressed, it had an Italian menu with an excellent risotto and Pastas, as well as the usual fare of salads etc. I can see why it... More

Our hotel was close by so we decided on a whim to have our last breakfast in San Francisco here. Service was friendly and quick. We only had to wait 10 minutes for a table to be available at 930am on a Saturday. My husband ordered the smoked salmon omelet with home fries. I tried the eggs scrambled with bacon,... More

Stayed in Powell Place just up the hill from Roxanne's. Ate breakfast at Roxanne's everyday! The California omelet was great. Reasonable prices (for San Francisco). Small place with local charm! Ate there in 1994 last time we went to SF and can't say it's changed much! Clean, good food.

Situated on the corner Roxannes was very close to our hotel, we did have to queue at breakfast, but staff were very good at acknowledging you and letting you know approximately how long the wait was. Menu was good and reasonably priced , food excellent.

Thank Sharon099
