“Great Food, Service Value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

Lovely 'authentic' American diner. Good breakfast choice, service and quality at reasonable prices. Don't eat in your hotel - eat here.

Great little diner with lots of atmosphere and reasonable prices right off Union Square. Checkout the beautiful Edsel in back.

Used several locations across San Francisco and never disappointed. Food cooked to perfection, service with a smile and great value. Definitely a place for breakfast!

“Fast service - pretty good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

We had breakfast at Lori's. An omelet for me and Eggs Benedict for my wife. Both of us enjoyed our meal. It was a little better than average, but not by much. The service was super quick. They had our food out in minutes.

The decor of the diner itself is very authentic 1950's / 1960's, right down to the pinball machine. Lots to look at while you wait for your food. Very authentic to the time period.

San Francisco has really high prices for quality restaurant meals. Lori's cost $32 for the two of us. A little pricey for breakfast compared to what I am used to, but half the price the hotel wanted for their breakfast buffet.

If you are on the run and need a quick meal, Lori's is a good choice.
