“+2 from the standard breakfast franchise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2014 via mobile

Quick note...the OPH in FSD is so consistently good in terms of quality, presentation, service and value...

In terms of breakfast in town, there is none better.

“Something has changed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2014 via mobile

We've been a big fan of OPH since they opened. Always top notch, quality food presented consistently (to match the higher prices). However, in the last six months or so it has begun to change. Long time employees are no longer there, the food quality has become inconsistent and the portions are smaller. Also, the interior, restrooms and tables are showing their age and wear, and the level of cleanliness is not what it used to be. It's always sad to see a place begin to decline after a time. I just hope this is a blip on the radar and OPH will return to exceptional rather than average.

“better pancakes at perkins”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

Really wasn't to impressed, the omelet is to much for one person, maybe split it between a couple of people , the pancakes not real impressed , can make fluffier ones at home or get them from perkins. Service was ok

“Delicious!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013 via mobile

This is my favorite breakfast place in SF. I wish it stayed open all day, but unfortunately it closes sometime in the afternoon. I don't think I've had a meal there that I didn't like. The pancakes are delicious! And I'm actually not a real big pancake fan. Their omelettes are huge and also very good. I've gone there often with my friend who has celiacs because they have a gluten free menu. She really likes their gluten free options including the gf pancakes. The only downside to this place is that it gets so busy.
