Visited Pat's Cafe twice while visiting San Francisco, as we were lucky enough to be only a few mins walk away. Great food, great menu choices and excellent service. Perfect start to the day, highly recommended by us all.

I had seen good reviews of Pat's Cafe in a travel book and eventually found it half by accident after getting on the wrong cable car. It's in a quiet street not far from Washington Square. Had my most enjoyable vegetarian meal of my trip, a spinach, broccoli and feta omelette with small roast potatoes, recommended by David the waiter,... More

After many impersonal cafes we finally found something that has character and a great vibe , loved the bright colourful walls and the colourful crockery and so happy to find somewhere that served fruit for breakfast . The crepes with fresh fruit were delicious . Husband enjoyed his eggs Benedict. His coffee wasn't strong enough despite asking for an extra... More

Were were both agog over how good each dish was. And they kept the coffee coming. We felt really blessed to be able to sit... More

From the street Pat's Cafe appears to be another average place to catch a meal. Well, step inside and find a bustling cafe with a friendly staff and delicious food offered up in a timely manner. My lunch was that of chicken tacos and a side salad of greens drizzled with the house dressing. My dining partner selected the chicken... More

We went twice in our week in SF. Friendly welcoming service - menu was good and suited my kids. Pat came in on our second visit and chatted with us. They do home style potatoes rather than hash browns and the corned beef hash was not what I expected from a UK perspective but still really good - would recommend... More

We looked online for a place for breakfast which had good reviews and we were not disappointed. Pat's Cafe is a real gem hidden away somewhat off the beaten track but the food was excellent and the service great. The atmosphere and environment are one of the key features of this place .... it feels homely and the staff are... More

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.
