Best breakfast place ever! I was blown away how great and amazing everything tasted! Even if something isn't on the menu they try to accommodate to your needs! The spicy sausage is soooo yummy and potatoes and the steak is seasoned so good idk what they put on it but ahhhh I wish I could bring them in my kitchen... More

We were on our way to another restaurant we had read about called Mama's for breakfast. That place had a HUGE LONG line out the door. Probably over an hour wait for sure. I'm sure it must be good to have that line, but we didn't want to wait. Luckily for us, just across the street and a little up... More

From the bar stools to the decor, thematic. The food portions were extremely large. My slice of apple pie was huge. The wait staff were friendly. The Baileys milkshake was to die for. You must find this and chow down.

The stop to Mo's was fun. Excellent friendly service, charbroiled rotary grill and fresh food. Fun place and worth the effort to find. Looks like a local favorite and they took good care of the 3 of us during our Sunday visit. Will go again when in the area as a nice change.

Visited this little place on Tues 6/28 for breakfast. We were staying several blocks away at CQ hotel and Liz at the front desk recommended Mo's. The walk (12-15 mins) was well worth it. As we walked in the door at Mo's I noticed a pan of home fries on the rotating grill and knew we were in for a... More

After my coffee at the famed Cafe Trieste recently , they recommended Mo's Grill for breakfast, as I was staying nearby, After a walk up to Coit Tower as Mo's opens at 8 am, we enjoyed a hearty breakfast at Mo's. Food was excellent although it seemed to take longer than the crowded restaurant would require. Pleasant service, with frequent... More

I classic old-fashioned diner. I live in North Beach and it's my first choice for breakfast. My favorite is the Italian omelet with huge amounts of sun dried tomatoes in it. And of course their fried potatoes and excellent coffee. Always busy but the line waiting to be seated moves fast. Great for babies. My 10 month old grandson quiets... More

Good burger with crunchy bun. The grilled burger from the lava grill was very good and tasty. The bun a bit too crispy. Service was very thoughtful and friendly.

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.
