“Wonderful Breakfast - Super Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

Great food served quickly with a smile - what more do you need.

Shame about queues on some days but to be expected.

“Don't judge a book by its cover! Excellent And not $$$$, more like $$”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

Fresh generous yummy food! Unique enough to want to come back and try other breakfast dishes. Great cappuccinos , service too. Small quaint place, usually a line around 9am. But food comes out quick and lines more fast. Huge portions, enough to split, esp. Breakfast burrito. I do think there's an error with the rating of $$$$. It's not expensive at all. Relatively cheap. $$

“Great breakfast, don't pass this one by”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013

Read about the Hollywood Cafe before our trip to Sanfrancisco so it was on our list of places to eat and boy was it just worth it, in fact we ate here twice it was that good.
It's not glamorous but it is welcoming and the food here is just awesome.
There's a great selection on the menu, the service is quick and great value for money and some of the portions that came out were HUGE, so make sure your hungry.
Most of the dishes are served with a fabulous bowl of fresh fruit, perfect start to the day.
Make sure you go for breakfast, you won't be disappointed.

“So worth the wait”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013 via mobile

I usually avoid waiting for a table. My family made me suck it up for this place. So glad they did. The service is quick and friendly. The food is very good. The portions are large. The value is shockingly good. Go. Wait.
