My crab omelette with hash browns was delicious and the portions generous. Fluffy pancakes came with lots of fresh fruits. Service was prompt and friendly. I did not mind waiting here (unlike another well rated cafe in SF) as they take your name so you don't have to keep standing in a line.

Enjoyed this little gem, especially the fresh fruit bowl with berries, melons, citrus, & grapes! Loved the sourdough toast & jelly, the Hollywood hash browns, omelet, & French toast. We arrived early at 7:30am, got served immediately, and enjoyed every bite!

The breakfast at this hole-in-the-wall close to Fisherman's Wharf is delicious. The portions are large enough to share and the prices are reasonable. I'm disappointed that waffles are not on the menu. My wait for a noisy cramped inside table for three on a Tuesday morning at 9:15 was 45 minutes and there's nowhere to sit while your stomach growls... More

Hi 23Feb. Thank you for visiting us and we're sorry you didn't have a more enjoyable experience. We seat people in the order they arrive for the tables suited to the party size. Sometimes this means larger groups get seated before smaller ones who arrived first, or visa versa with small groups being seated first. We hope you can make... More

We came especially to the Hollywood Café after reading reviews, and are very glad we did! We waited around 30 minutes for a table, and got sat outside in a lovely sunny spot. The food came very quickly, and the portions were very big. Good quality food, a great find. Must visit if you are in this area.

We visited the cafe during a family visit to the City. After doing some research on trusty Trip Advisor, we found this highly rated cafe and paid a visit. Absolutely delicious! Portions are amazing and the food is top notch. Definitely worth the wait! Will visit again.

Restaurant was packed and it was worth the wait. The portions were too much for me but I dont usually eat a whole lot. Fruit was with each meal and was plentiful. You dont get just one fruit with you plate, I got at least 4 different types. Downside was the bathroom, I would hold it for another 30 minutes... More

Tried this diner after great reviews on Trip-advisor and they weren't wrong. The service was good and the food was well worth the walk. I had the crab omelette which was accompanied by one of the largest hash browns I've ever seen. Pretty average price wise so all in all a good visit.

I chose this based on the good reviews on trip-advisor. This was a great place, we just had to wait for 5 min even we where 6 pax. The breakfast portion was huge and really good. Perfect location near the warf.
