“Great food professional service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

I was staying at the Hilton across the street, took my kids for breakfast two times in a row the food was as the reviews said great, the store was small as in the reviews, the service was fast professional but the were in a hurry and a bit not cordial, they were not impolite but were set for professionals that are in hurry to get to work rather than families on vacation. I enjoyed the food, took French toast and fried eggs with mango chicken sausage the first time and a crab omelet the second time. Kids had pan cakes the only missing thing was chocolate syrup or nuetella,
We four paid 50$ and 60$ on both days

Hello Amoharram, You are correct, we primarily serve business people who want a quick, quality restaurant but we love families as eel. We're happy to hear you and your children enjoyed the meal and please accept our apologies for the servers being less cordial than we would have liked.

“Excellent food in a grungy spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

We read the very good reviews, and the food was up to the recommendations, but Taylor is small, and almost third world in its set up. All the food for prep is sitting out behind the counter, stacks of egg trays, slices of bread, bins of fruit.. but they sure put together a nice looking and well prepared breakfast plate. Service was efficient and almost friendly, and the price is so low for the quality and quantity. I still give it excellent for atmosphere but it was great grunge. I'd go back,

“Great pancakes, pity about the bacon”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

Soooo ... You're known for millionaire bacon, it's featured on TV, it's mentioned on every page of the menu and so you're only thought as you peruse the menu is "what shall I have with my millionaire bacon?" When your waitress helpfully informs you that, "oh no, we don't have millionaire bacon today." Wow, that's quite frustrating when you're from out of town. The pancakes we did have were very nice and the fruit as well, but it really loses some gloss when a place can't provide you with their signature dish in the middle of their breakfast period midweek.

Hi Karen-Stephen. Please accept our apologies for being out of Millionaire's Bacon on your visit. That rarely happens and we hope you can get back to try it one day.

“Quick service, great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

Able to grab breakfast here everyday during our stay in SF since we stayed across the street at the Hilton Union Square. My fave was the Dungeness Crab Omelet, my wife loved the Breakfast combo with the fruit. Descent prices compared to the hotel breakfast. Line goes out the door if you don't get there early enough...an option we did several times was to take it to go. We just ate in our room!

“Pretty place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

Loved the ambiente, they have very friendly staff and surprisingly good coffee. Still, it's a bit jammed but you wont stay for hours and the food is great (take the fresh fruits!).
