Great Little Cafe

This is a wonderful little neighborhood cafe. I had the "Roxanne Grande" breakfast. The pancakes were nothing special but the bacon, sausage, home fries and eggs were all wonderful. The staff are all friendly and attentive.

Stumbled into this small cafe on the way to Chinatown. It's got small tables or bar seating. The breakfast was hot and fresh. The veggie omelet was filled with veggies and lots of cheese. The cappuccino could have come in a larger mug for $3.50 including a shot of vanilla. They begrudgingly gave me a coffee refill even tho they... More

Busy little restaurant. We had breakfast here. Food was good, with reasonable portions. Not inexpensive.

We stayed a week in Nob Hill and ate breakfast here daily. There is a very European buzz about the place. We have particular culinary needs and were never disappointed. It was usually busy but we could always get a seat, order exactly what we wanted and with the minimum of waiting. The tasty food is reliable, good value and... More

After a quick walk up Poxwell Street you work up an appetite, and Roxanne Cafe is a good place to refuel. Went for the Tuna Melt sandwich after it was recommended by the waitress, and I was not let down! Service was nice and friendly and the location simply superb! Great place for a quick lunch, I will be coming... More

I've visited San Francisco many times over 30+ years and frequently used Roxanne's as a breakfast spot because of its convenient location and fair price. It's on a corner spot with a good view of the Powell streetcar; the dining room has a bit dated feel to it, but it actually makes me feel comfortable. In the most recent visit... More

Just had breakfast here. Felt like I was an inconvenience to the staff. I ordered an omelette. No offer of choice of toasts that were listed with it. No check back to see if everything was ok. Whilst there a family came in and the waiting staff were all over them. I left feeling angry that I paid a tip... More
