“Funky cafe for breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 25, 2012

This is a great spot for breakfast near Fisherman's Wharf. You serve yourself coffee using an assortment of mugs and a choice of 10 or so varieties of coffee. The food was excellent, although also a bit funky. Corned Beef Hash was clearly made locally, as it was ground corned beef without the usual chopped potatoes; instead the potatoes were chunks in the hash. An interesting and very tasty variation on a theme.

“Quaint little breakfast nook”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2012

If you are on a diet, don't go here. Nice folks in a a cozy retro setting. Great wholesome breakfast, fresh juice and great coffee at very reasonable prices. Close to everything and within easy walking distance from/to Fisherman's Wharf

“Unique atmosphere - delicious home-cooking”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2012

This fabulous cafe was a real treat. The staff first attracted us by shouting across the road (cheap, effective marketing!). We didn't succumb to their charms until the next day, though, when we had the most delicious corned-beef hash and omelette prepared in the open kitchen. Pergamino really feels as though the people who work there care about it; you help yourself to a wide range of coffees in an eclectic assortment of mugs, complemented by a huge glass of juice (learn from that, huge hotel chains) while your breakfast cooks. The staff are delightful and were hugely helpful with directions on what we should do for the rest of the day. Go there.
