Neighborhood: Union Square
Description: The Taylor Street Coffee Shop is a long-standing favorite of San Francisco offering the city fresh, tasty coffee and delicious breakfast food. We love to serve a healthy breakfast with lots of fresh fruit, but also have items such as our breakfast pizza - hash browns under scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, and more - that we know will satisfy. We keep the atmosphere casual and relaxed, the service friendly and fast, and the food hot and tasty. What more could you ask for?

“Good service, great breakfast”
Reviewed December 21, 2012

The range of options and quality of food is excellent, this can be shown by the queue in the mornings.

The fruit is fresh, everything is cooked to order and served in a reasonable time. I wouldn't hesitate to go back, just get there early if you want to avoid the wait!

“it IS the best breakfast in SF”
Reviewed December 16, 2012

1st full day in SF and we went to TSCS for breakfast. Wow. OK, so it's small, and you have to queue, but the staff were really friendly and the food was fantastic. Their hash browns are crispy and seasoned really well; topped with cheese, pepper, onion and bacon,with eggs and toast on the side - really was a plate to set me up for the day. Coffee was a constant hot, strong flow. Even met a guy coming out who comes here once a year around Christmas with his family, specifically because it's so good! Having gone to a couple of other places that are supposed to do good breakfasts, there really is no comparison. But don't tell everyone - the queue will just get longer!

“SF Morning Essential.”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

Fantastic little Breakfast spot. Always busy, so queues are frequent but fast moving, and the solo traveler might find themselves sharing a table and meeting new people.
Breakfasts are great with the standard Egg/Bacon/Toast made special with the addition of a half plate full of Tropical Fruit. You can almost convince yourself that you're eating healthy.

“Great Californian Breakfast”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

This is a tiny little gem, hidden a couple of blocks away from Union Square. The standard breakfast is freeflowing coffee, eggs, bacon (or sausages) toast and a side order of fruit. From all the posh buffet and swanky restraunts I've had breakfast in - their food (especially the bacon) beats the rest hands down. I was going to take a photo but the food was too good for messing about with photos!
