I'm a local and every time I go here I love it. It's my favorite place to have breakfast. Everything I've tried there is really good. The location is really great too. On the Embarcadero with a nice view of The Rock. All the staff has been super nice and friendly too.

Staff was friendly and quick. I was there on the patio on a quiet Monday morning with my dog. ABC scramble was good (not fabulous, but good) and while the waterfront wasn't peaceful, it was lovely.

Frankie and Lola's is convenient for those looking for a place that is pet friendly. That being said, the patio is small therefore there is usually a wait because of limited seating. Nothing is done to enhance its appearance. The tables are wrought iron and anything that drops remains there. Getting a handful of jelly or syrup on the ground... More

This place was recommended in a recent Times article. We were lucky to arrive on a Friday morning before a long line. Food was prepared fast and delicious. I'd recommend the sexy coffee!

We went for breakfast early so was a little quiet, great for us. The service was good & the food was very good specifically the corned beef hash, even though portions were big it lost none of its quality or flavour

We had a great breakfast here. Brie, cranberry chutney, ham, and scrambled eggs on grilled sour dough. Wow. Is now our go to place when we visit. Skip the coffee unless you drink a lot. $2.50 for a bottomless cup.

Portion sizes are huge! My boyfriend asked for 3 pancakes with a side of bacon. The waitress warned that 2 would be enough and thankfully he listened to her as 2 was too much! Very thick and tasty buttermilk pancakes - so unlike the pancakes you get in the UK!! They were fabulous. The potatoes which came with the breakfast... More

The pancakes are huge and freshly made. If you have a small appetite only order one! The service was good. Very small so you may have a wait at a weekend

Sadly, I think this cafe is a victim of its success on Trip Advisor. We visited yesterday morning (Friday 16) for breakfast and it was a thoroughly disappointing experience overall. The cafe is very small with about 7 tables inside and a similar amount outside. Be warned that the outside tables are, to be honest, sitting on the edge of... More
