Friendly little spot to drop in at happy hour, beer wine and basic spirits. No wifi. Popcorn and nuts with your drinks. Great surroundings, right on the street. Called in for one, stayed for four.

I was looking for somewhere to eat breakfast. It was my first morning in San Francisco, and I saw the Cozy Cable Cafe. I asked if they served pancakes and the person serving me appeared to be very angry. He snapped at me and said”...What” I said do you serve pancakes or hotcakes. He said no. I pointed to the menu which listed pancakes. The waiter arrived with my pancakes and slammed the meal and cutlery on the table. I ate about half of the pancakes because I was hungry. The quality of the food is not value for money. When the staff went out the back I decided to leave the restaurant. Do not go to this restaurant. POOR SERVICE and POOR QUALITY FOOD.More

When you arrive at the cafe, you place your order at the counter, take a number, and then find a table. We easily found spots for our group of six. Most of us ordered the breakfast burrito, which was a nice size and very good....The food came out quickly and hot! It is a nice spot for a nice, big, quick, delicious breakfast before beginning your day in the city!More

The avocado on toast is delicious with pickle and poached eggs. Yummy fruit salad is so fresh and tasty. Very friendly, clean and in the best location right on Powell Street. This is a little beauty for brekky or lunch.

Dropped in for breakfast as been recommended and good reviews. Didn’t disappoint, enjoyed the food. Worked out $80 for 4 of us with drinks. Pretty reasonable to some places we have eaten. Good to try 👌👌

We enjoyed some awesome breakfast burritos in this little place! It was close by our hotel and came highly recommended - we weren’t disappointed! The service was great, the only thing I would say is you have to order at the till point and serve...your own drinks. Reasonably priced though and great food!More

This is a great place that service very good food wether its the bagel or the breakfast burrito. It sits just off Union square and if you want to get away from the large crowds this is surely a place worth trying. Along with that...the provided numerous food options and the staff their are all really friendly.More
