“Great Breakfast Choice”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

Staying in the Union Square area means you're assured hefty meal prices, with mixed quality. The Cozy Cable Car Cafe on Powell was the closest we came to a neighborhood restaurant during our brief stay in the area. We had their cottage cheese-berry crepe and it was excellent. Their prices were comparable or a little lower than some of the other more stodgy options, and there are free refills on the excellent French Roast coffee. We would have loved the berry mixture to have been warmed with the cheese, but other than that had a lovely breakfast.

“Good value breakfast”
Reviewed December 7, 2012

The food was very good - i had a granola yogurt fresh fruit crepe and it was perfect. Service was very friendly. The decor is standard utilitarian tables and chairs but for the Union square area it was nice to get some great food quickly and affordably.

“Quaint place”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

Don't go here for the atmosphere, but the food is quite good (pretty basic menu) and the service is what I believe you would expect (their main objective is efficiency - and they are that)

“Ouch”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

Sorry.... this is a bit run down and not what we wanted for lunch fare. Food was greasy - and the place seemed less than super clean. Clean enough, nice enough - but the name does not match up to what it should be like. We did take out since we were not thrilled with the eatery inside.

“Good food and friendly service”
Reviewed September 6, 2012

We dropped in for breakfast. Food was very good, super friendly service and very reasonable prices for the location on Powell. Also really enjoyed watching people walking up the hill and the cable cars passing by.
