Simply the best breakfast by the bay. Fresh ingredients. The fruit cup was amazing. Coffee tasted great. Everything was just right. Highly recommended.

When a restaurant is number 2 in a city as large as San Fran you would expect it to be something special, sadly though it wasn't. The service was so so, the hygiene was concerning (shared jam pots on tables ect) and the two dishes we ordered, bacon and eggs were cold and Banana French toast was so sweet and soggy from the banana the it was basically unpalatable. All in all a very forgettable experience we wouldn't repeat.

My mom and I were sharing a wonderful mother daughter trip to San Francisco and found the Hollywood Cafe on tripadvisor. Wow!! we found a gem! The restaurant is small....holds about 30 but there is sidewalk dining. It was so good we had breakfast there every day of our visit. I have never had such delicious fruit and incredible portions! Eggs any way you choose, hashbrowns as big as your plate, incredible pancakes and french toast and thee is even a morning Salad! The Latte' was hands down the best I ever had and I would almost go back to San Fran just for breakfast!! .

Really wonderful breakfasts. Huge portions, garnished with huge servings of fresh fruit. Very crowded, but worth the wait.
