Great destination for weekend brunch

This place has a lot of neighborhood regulars on weekdays and on weekends it's clear that folks come from further away just for the terrific breakfast food. Menu looks pretty standard diner fare but with the occasional local twist. Omelets are my favorite, but they also have wonderful pancakes... read more

I grew up with my folks owning a second home here in the city so I have hunted out every nook and cranny for little treasure spots to take family and friends when they visit. That being said, the breakfasts here are worth the drive if you are staying downtown on Union Square or at the Wharf. Everyone comes here... More

I have been going here for breakfast since the early 80's. I always order the Spanish omelet. When I was young I had them add more cheese and sour cream. The recipe hasn't changed at all. If it broke, why fix it. I went here with my French cousins. They were in heaven, ordering, pancakes and sides of this and... More

Especially liked breakfast choices; omelets and coffee were superb. At a number of the tables, you get a nice view of the Pacific Ocean.

Been to the Seal Rock Inn Restaurant in the past...it's always been a reliably good breakfast place, and it's across the street from the Sutro Heights Park!!

Out being tourists for the day, we chose this spot as the Cliff House was very crowded. This is an extension of the hotel, you enter through the lobby. A little dated, but you get quick and friendly service. Our lunch was simple and tasty and the price was right.

Very nice menu-everything we have had was very good. Only problem was they close early evening so be sure to eat early----and you can buy a bottle of wine for later to watch the sunset !

Very good breakfast and lunch food. We ate there twice and were very pleased both times. Crowded but didn't have to wait very long. Loved the breakfast burrito.

It was lunch time and we had just finished going up and down at the Sutro Baths and Lands end. We were starving and didn't want wrapped sandwishes from the visitor center, nor spend mega bucks at the Cliff House. We walked up to take the bus and saw this little restaurant on the corner. The food was very good... More
