Staff was super friendly and accommodating. Food was good. Fruit crepes can with a lot of fruit. Nutella crepes were also enjoyed by my kids. However they would... More

I was lucky to get one of the tables in the window :-) The nice musical background, the yummy yummy waffles, delicious cappucco and the most friendly smiling waiter made it an most enjoyable breakfast and start into a sunny day ☀️

Happened upon this quaint restaurant looking for a breakfast place that didn't have a line out the door. We quickly scanned the menu and found many things our group of six could eat. While the wait to seat six would've been a modest twenty minute wait (for a Sunday), we opted to split our party between two tables, and were... More

The food here was so good! I had huevos rancheros and my wife had french toast that she loved. A cool little place well worth finding! The staff was really friendly and very accommodating. Really really good food!

We then waited again for... More

This is a very small place which is typical in San Francisco. We had to wait over an hour and a half for a table. Staff was not very friendly, do not get the corn beef hash it is terrible. The biscuits and gravy is good but all the eggs were undercooked. They bought out half of our order out... More

If you visit San Francisco, you need to have breakfast at Pat's Cafe. French toast was thick and moist and the breakfast sausage was the best I have ever had. You will not regret starting your day at Pat's Cafe.

Staying in North Beach / Telegraph Hill

Neighborhood Profile
North Beach / Telegraph Hill
The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian ristorante come together to create the charming neighborhood of North Beach, once the stomping grounds for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of North Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always suitable for younger visitors, few neighborhoods in the city exude as much European charm and style. Peruse a bookstore for the literature of Kerouac, Ferlinghetti and Ginsberg, grab some gelato and head to Washington Square for a perfect afternoon of people watching. Just east of North Beach, the hills and staircases of Telegraph Hill are a unique delight. At its peak, the art deco Coit Tower provides sweeping panoramic views of the bay and city. The beautifully landscaped Filbert Street Steps, a street too steep for a roadway, rewards those willing to hike uphill. Keep your ears open and you might even hear the squawk of the wild parrots who call this neighborhood home.
