We arrived just before the kitchen started cooking for breakfast, but the server explained it would be starting in 15 mins and invited us to have coffee while we waited - great, relaxed atmosphere. Stylishly understated rather than painfully hip. Breakfast (eggs benedict, French toast)...More

I met a friend here, I was acknowledge on the fact that we may have to line-up before having a seat, but it took just few minutes. The place is nice, especially on weekends, the service is good, the food is really good.

What a great place to have some good eggs benedict and frech toasts in a saturday. Besides the long line, the service is super efficient and the cappucino is a reward after all. Super good choice

A very cool and cosy place for breakfast, brunch and coffee. Great food and location. I recommend going. (It can get busy - avoid rush hour, weekends, lunch times, etc. you know the drill)

Great service! Granted the decor is a little tired and furniture well past its prime, but the food is great -- original, but very San Francisco menu items. Delicious brunch selections. Always a line, so glad to finally experience this place.

Mission District
From burritos to bicyclists, the Mission is the
foundation for all things hip in the city. Cultural

While terrific inexpensive food is abundant, its
top-of-the-line restaurants now compete with the
city’s best for fashionable diners. Indulge as the
