This place looked nice from the outside, but food and service were average and portion sizes small - no sharing plates here. For the prices charged - not good value. It was also very quiet when other places were quite busy - that should have been the first warning. Wonder if this has changed recently, as our experience does not... More

Although this café was packed whenever we walked past ,I can not see what the attraction is. Went for breakfast a few times out of necessity but thought the food was greasy and not tasty and was overpriced The only good thing I ate was the fruit salad. My omelette was swimming in fat and the potatoes on the side... More

Other reviewers did not steer us wrong. Attractive, cozy setting w/ view of cable cars going by out the window. Delicious breakfast.

Everything is perfect, service, food and atmosphere. We had the traditional eggs, potatoes and Canadian bacon cooked to perfection - one of the best cups of coffee in the area.

This place was amazing. We stayed at the Orchard Hotel next door and chose to eat here for nearly every meal. They didn't seem to ever close and the food was amazing. Once of the best parts of our stay in San Francisco.

Staff were reasonably friendly, but didn't know much about the food. Food was pretty average, and quite pricey considering. Nice location if you can get a window seat.

Just half a block from The Golden Gate Hotel where we were staying, we found this little gem of a restaurant. They open early and the food and service were very good.

I stayed at the Fairmont this week and after paying $40 for their buffet, I decided to venture out. roxanne cafe became my new, favorite morning spot. Whether you like a traditional breakfast of bacon amd eggs or want to order some of their specialty items, you can't go wrong with what you choose. It's all good.
