“Don't miss this breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2013

3 Ladies from Ireland who spent 7 nights in San Franciso wanted to tick this box before we left so on our last morning took a taxi especially to get there. It was well worth it. Seated fairly quickly despite long line. The fruit bowl is awesome. We counted 12 fruits and how they fitted it into one bowl was beyond me. Breakfast was to die for with extra toast and endless tea. Prices very reasonable for all the food we got. The fruit bowl would have fed the 3 of us, never mind one each. Delighted we had time to fit it in. After the gorgeous breakfast we found ROSS across the road and maxed the credit cards. Thanks for a memorable visit to Cafe Hollywood!

“Excellent Breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2013 via mobile

Got there at 7:00AM on Tuesday & walked right in. The place was full by 7:30AM. Service was quick & efficient. My latte was just right. We got toasted & buttered sourdough bread right after we ordered. I enjoyed my stuffed tomato (stuffed with feta cheese, green onions, basil...). Highly recommended!

“Amazing Breakfast at a reasonable price!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2013

We just ate breakfast this morning at the Hollywood Café and I couldn't wait to post my review of this fantastic restaurant. Little did I know it was already rated #2 on Tripadvisor. We just happened to walk by it on the way to watch friends and family run today's half-marathon. Lucky for us, afterwards, friends waited in line here so that we could all eat breakfast outside with our dog as the line was quite long. We were all absolutely amazed by the quality, quantity and presentation of the food! Our daughter ordered the Marilyn Monroe expecting your standard French toast with a little plate of fruit. The French toast was excellent and came covered in a variety of fresh fruit including watermelon, bananas, grapes, strawberries, oranges and more. My Hollywood hash browns were perfectly-cooked hash browns covered with mushrooms, bacon and cheese - Excellent! Hubby's omelet was enormous and made with large chunks of ham, not just small pieces. Our dog also appreciated that my wheat toast came with three large pieces of toast, enough for her to eat also!! Prices were very reasonable and we can't wait to return!!

“Stunning breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2013

We visited the Hollywood cafe twice while staying in San Francisco, the breakfast was so good we just had to return for a second helping. The queue outside was an indicator how popular this restaurant was even at 08.30 in the morning but it is well worth the short wait
The fruit platter was enormous and more than enough for two people and the omelettes were fantastic also
The staff were extremely helpful with the menu
Thanks trip advisor a real little gem
