We went to Lori’s after it being recommended but one of the cabin crew on our way to San Francisco. We weren’t disappointed, the breakfast was lovely and good value for money. Staff were very friendly and the setting is great. Very recommended!

If you like the 50's go there..A true dinner with non-stop 50 and 60's music..Not your place for a refined meal but for a "quick" one it is fine. The best bet is their egg dishes.

One of the few 24hr diners left in San Fran. Great for an early jet lagged breakfast. Everything is good quality and even the coffee isn’t too bad! Classic old school decor and heaps of booths so guaranteed a good spot.

Only stopped here for coffee to go. However, arrived quickly. The decor is fantastic and the menu certainly looked good. Would eat there next time.
