Nothing fancy, but a good breakfast that is reasonable.

“Yumm”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2012 via mobile

If it weren't for all the positive reviews we never would've stopped. But it was delicious and priced perfectly -- very unlike San Francisco in that way (cheap!!) tough for my family with small children to find seating as there is only one table non bar seating. I cannot say how good this place is. Very impressive.

“Breakfast with locals”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2012 via mobile

Classic greasy spoon! We had a cheap breakfast at the counter at this tiny, old diner near our hotel. We sat with local bachelors who read the paper while they ate eggs and hash browns. Very peaceful actually. My eggs and pancakes were tasty, and we watched one of the older gentlemen grate potatoes by hand for hash browns. Old school in every sense of the word. All in all, nice place to cure a hang over, or to fill up on a serious breakfast on a budget before tackling the expensive city.

“Budget breakfast place in SF... no frills and no thrills.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2012

This is a great place to go if you are on a budget. It is a small mostly counter seating breakfast/lunch place with no frills and no thrills. Two eggs with hash browns and toast and coffee for around $6. They only take cash and make sure you tell them exactly how you like things. Toast comes already buttered and hash brown were a little under done for my taste. The next day I went there, I specified well done hash browns and no butter on the toast. Everything went fine after that.

“A great traditional American diner experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2012

Went here for breakfast. Good, cheap, filling food. Great to watch the chef making pancakes and waffles, hash browns, eggs as you wait for your order. Non-stop coffee and a filling breakfast with friendly, efficient service.
