The Cove has been on Castro forever - and places don't last if they are not good. We had the dinner special that night and it was outstanding at a reasonable price. Attentive service and sufficiently quiet to carry on a conversation.... unlike so many other places.

I have eaten at Cove Cafe when visiting San Francisco for years. Really good cafe for breakfast and brunch, very friendly service and more than likely you will get chatting to a few of the customers as well.

We had 2 very good breakfasts at the Cove. Big portions, good welcoming, great pancakes and eggs benedict. They also have great deals for "early birds". A good start to anyone's day!

...not that I have tried that many of them. On every visit to the Cove we have enjoyed great (and usually playful, friendly) service and brilliantly good brunches. Try it if you are in the area.
