Lovely cafe, delicious breakfasts and great staff. Get there early though, we used jet lag to our advantage!

Not complaining because i'm a fruits lover, but the portion of fruits is just..ridiculous. You can get so full from eating the fruits that you can't finish everything else. Loved the cherries and raspberries though. I had the crab meat benedict - generous portions of crab meat. Be prepared for a 30 min wait.

Hollywood Cafe is small, and the line gets long, but don't let that scare you. It's worth the wait. The service is fast and friendly. The food is really good, and the portions are huge. With a day of walking the hills of SF in front of you, you'll appreciate a big breakfast.

This is a very small restaurant, but nice at the same time. We happened to get a table right away and it wasn't super early. By the time we left, there was a line. The service was good.

If you are staying in the Fisherman's Wharf area it is within easy wallking distance- if you are staying anywhere else it is worth the drive! The food is simply fabulous for breakfast or lunch! No dinner.

We visited having read the reviews and so arrived at 7am (partly due to early waking because of jet lag) and we were rewarded with an immediately available table of our choice. We left at 7:45 and they were out the door queuing (remember to put your name on the pad). Now the food was great but the portions were... More

We ate here twice during our stay in San Francisco as the Cafe was located very near to our hotel. Both times we managed to get tables very easily (however we were up early adjusting to the time difference). The staff were very helpful and friendly and the food was plentiful. I particularly enjoyed my french toast and was very... More

We came here for breakfast on our last morning in San Francisco, and wished that we had known about it sooner! A lovely little place with a delicious breakfast - fresh food and generous portions with great service. I would definitely eat here again.

Delicious meal on a sunday afternoon. Went at 12ish and there was about 20-25 minute wait.

Put simply, this was the best breakfast that we had during our few days in San Francisco and the best of our two weeks in the USA. We visited the Hollywood Cafe as a family of four; we all had different items from the menu and they were all delicious. The food looked great, and tasted even better. The service... More
