Great location ... right on the cable car stop!

On our last trip to San Francisco, we ate at Roxanne's twice ... both times for breakfast. It was absolutely in a perfect location .. just steps from our timeshare and right on the cable car stop. The food really is good .. and if you get a good window seat, you can watch the people walking by... read more

Pretty good Caesar salad and polenta chips for a light lunch. Probably won't stay long in the memory but was fine for what we wanted. Service fine. Price Fine. All in all: fine.

Great place to eat breakfast. Open early and right next to cable car stop. Didn't eat other meals here but it was always busy

We had a nothing-special Caesar salad for lunch at this little restaurant on the day we arrived in San Francisco, so I had decided not to do a review. However, because it was close to our hotel, we also had breakfast on our last day in town, and it was this visit that needed a review. It was a busy... More

This restaurant was next door to our hotel so it was very convenient for us. We ate breakfast there twice and each time were in a hurry because we had booked tours. Roxanne's offers nice breakfast options. The service and food were consistently good. Would definitely recommend to others.

Cute quaint little cafe. Clean and busy which is always a good sign. Not many four top tables but wait was about the same as what the bussed told us-20min. Once seated our server took a while to get us our coffees and waters. In fact, our drinks came then 5 min later our food came. I am a corned... More

We had walked by Roxanne's earlier in the day and looked at the menu. The prices were reasonable and it was only a couple blocks on a chilly night from our hotel. We arrived around 7:30pm and were seated immediately. We were not very hungry so we both ordered salads. I ordered a Western Cobb with the normal fixings on... More

A bit pricey, but delicious, and just down the block from Powell Place. Spaghetti with meat balls and a steak sandwich was $33. Got 15% off coupon from hotel.

Good but not great. We had to wait a long time for the food. It was good though when it arrived. Small place and hard to find. I will recommend to my friends.

Trip Advisor said it was close and highly rated. Good enough for my party of six because we had just arrived and we were tired and hungry. After we trooped up the hill we found the quaint small spot and were greeted graciously. Service, prices and hospitality were excellent. Five of the six opted for the special of the day,... More
