Large portions of excellent food . The fruit platter is enough for two people. You get fresh strawberries, Bananas, raspberries, blackberries, lemons, grapefruit, red grapes, pineapple. Wonderful. I had the Veggie Breakfast Sandwich (yes on top of the fruit) which was heavenly. Wonderful grain filled bread with mushrooms, spinach, tomatoes, onions, avacado. All warm and juicy. I was in food heaven. And it even had fruit on the side. Can't recommend it highly enough.

Thank LauJa

Our hotel breakfast simply didn't cut it. So we needed to find a place nearby (we were at the Argonaut which is another great place). Thanks to Tripadvisor we found this jewel of a place!

This was a beautiful and warm morning in late october and we were fortunate to get a table outside in the morning sun. There was also some heaters on to make sure we kept warm and nice.

Menu had everything we wanted on it and the staff attentive. The kitchen managed to serve a complex order for a starving family of four in no time, and we struggled to take it slow and enjoy the moment since it was sooo tasty.

This place really deserved a good tip and a great review here. Keep it up guys! We'll surely come back some day and hope it's still as good :)

The fruit plate was super fresh and my personal favourite. The pancake was delicious and generous in portion. The service was speedy and efficient. This is easily the best breakfast we had in our 2 weeks in USA. We ate here with our little 7month old baby and found this cafe family friendly.

Recently stayed in San Francisco and ended up going to breakfast at the Hollywood Cafe every morning. The portions are generous and the variety of fruit amazing, we had bananas, grapes, strawberries, blackberries, raspberries, pineapple, melon, watermelon, apple and orange segments. The bread for the toast was very light plus the price per person was brilliant value. Would highly recommend a visit.

So we went to Hollywood cafe since is one of the best rated places in Trip Advisor in SF.
The place is small but very good decoration, they have tables indoor and outdoor.
The food very good, and they served a lot of fruit, is a very good way to start a day in SF.

The service very good and the price right!

Fuimos a Hollywood Cafe ya que es uno de los mejores lugares según Trip Advisor en SF.
El lugar es pequeño pero tiene buena decoración, tienen mesas dentro y afuera del lugar.
La comida es muy buena y en cada plato sirven mucha fruta, es una gran manera de iniciar un día en San Francisco.

El servicio es muy bueno y el precio es muy correcto.
