“Amazing food!”
Reviewed July 3, 2014

Expect to wait for a table a couple of minutes, but once your are seated you are in for a treat! Fantactic food!!! We orderd the Club Sandwich and a Bacon Omelette and we loved it! Expecially the fried that comes with the Club! Be awere that they close pretty early, around 2pm.

“Very good, but overated”
Reviewed July 3, 2014

Long wait for table, no doubt, due to Trip Advisor's (former) #1 rating (now #2). Very good service and breakfasts, although one of my poached eggs was overcooked (the other was fine). Fresh fruit was good too. Coffee seemed too strong for my wife (I don't drink it). There are far better breakfast choices, such as Sweet Maple, which is currently rated strangely as #39, which has far better food and no lineups.

“OMG...!!”
Reviewed July 2, 2014

OMG... we went here for breakfast before we cycled over the Golden Gate bridge and we were certainly stuffed by the time we left!! The omelettes are out of this world... huge portions, loads of fresh fruit - definitely a great start to the day!! Highly recommend.

“Great Breakfast!”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

Based on the high ratings on Tripadvisor, we decided to try the Hollywood Cafe for breakfast while on vacation. At first, we almost decided to go somewhere else as it is a small restaurant and honestly, did not look like anything special. Since we had no where to be we ended up staying and were glad that we did. The breakfast was great, but the showstopper which makes this place unique, is the assorted fruit bowl that comes with most orders. If you like fruit then this is must visit as the assorted fruit bowl has a ridiculous amount of fruit that includes by our count 12 different kinds of fruit. It is very reasonably priced, especially considering the amount of food you get. I would also recommend getting there early or during the week to avoid a long wait.
