We were in SF with extended family that we had not seen in years and we were staying in the Nob Hill area. We went to this cafe twice, once for late breakfast and once for dinner (group of 8 and 12). We showed up without reservations but did not have to wait too long for our tables. The servers were attentive and the food was delicious. It is a very cozy, comfortable cafe. It isn't so loud that it is hard to carry on a conversation. Will definitely go back when we are in SF again.
