What a true hidden gem, a short walk from the Union Square Area. This is a true old school hole-in-the-wall greasy spoon coffee shop, that will bring you back in time to the 70's, maybe even the 60's. Far from fancy,Very far from fancy, however, it is clean and comfortable, with a relaxed local feel. I hope this place never changes. A U-shaped counter, and a few small tables make this place cozy. Great coffee, along with a great breakfast, cooked on the grill right in front of you make this place a true gem. Non-tourist prices and good homestyle cooked foods make this place worth the walk! Overall Breakfast rating ~ OUTSTANDING!

It is old looking, and we almost didn't go in, but the other reviews convinced us to try it. Glad we did. The eggs and pancakes were fantastic, and at a great price.

We're visiting from out of town, and we'll be coming back.

The place is far from being fancy but the food is delicious. Best pancakes the ever had!!! I'm sure we will be back pretty soon. :D

Right across the street from our Hotel, this hole-in-the-wall breakfast/lunch counter served us well for a quick hot breakfast. We had eggs & home fries and coffee. No complaints.

Small corner diner off Sutter St. I went in for breakfast, ordered an egg, hash browns, and sliced avocado. The diner has the old classic feel with the stools around in a U-shape. It was quick service and the food was good. Surprised to see that my check was just around $5. The least expensive meal on my trip to SF, and the food was good. It was a nice start to a sightseeing day in San Francisco.
