Walk down Mason one block to Geary. Cross the street. Pinecrest, as mentioned above. Small and diner like. Excellent American breakfast with generous portions and fast service.

Walk half a block down from there on the left side to Cafe Mason. More extensive menu, Also excellent service. The waitresses, I think, are on student visas, mostly from Russia.

These are our two usual choices when we stay at the Donatello, which is often.

Honey Honey is good, but you order at the counter as I remember. It is also just a block from the hotel.

I don't "do" Sears. Its reputation has often meant a long line on the sidewalk and since it changed ownerships I don't think it has kept up on its reputation. Whatever you do, avoid any of the Lori's chain. Shmaltzy fake 1950's decor (movie magazine covers on the walls) with waitresses in fake '50s. uniforms. Food is mediocre.

Enjoy your stay. Do you know about the top floor lounge at the Donatello with free coffee and newspapers, fireplace and two terraces? Also up there a small fitness center with spa.

Enjoy.

OH ! Right. Luque's is a lovely small restaurant in the hotel which serves breakfast and lunch. The room is pretty, there are fresh flowers on the table, the menu is interesting and the service excellent. I don't know how I forgot it.
