Don't expect anything fancy when you go here. The decor is not appealing, but the food is simply wonderful and so reasonably priced. We went here for breakfast twice, had different things both times and loved everything both times. The diner is run primarily by two men - one takes orders and takes care of the customers and one works the wonders at the grill. You can watch him prepare every step of your meal, and it all comes out delicious! Frequented by locals, but tourists welcome and treated well!!

Hot, cheap, quick breakfast in downtown San Francisco served and cooked up by two men I want to be my grandpas. Clientele range from pensioners with coin purses and long dirty fingernails to art students smokin' fags while waiting for a spot. No mochas, fruit, or la di da! Just eat, pay, and get out. I want your seat at the counter.

Good food. Hole in the wall non-pretentious cheap eats. Hidden gem only locals know about. I only had breakfast here. Good Coffee.

I love Golden Coffee. This place is the best. Family Restaurant on Divisidero used to be my favorite breakfast place, until it changed owners and got taken over by yuppies. I went searching for a replacement, and now GC is top of my list. But in all honesty, even if I had found GC when Family Restaurant was open, I think GC would've edged it out anyways.

Here's the deal: you go in feeling grouchy, you've got about five bucks to your name, and you are starving. You leave happy, your belly is full...and best of all, you've still got a couple bucks left!!!

This place is truly amazing.

Atmosphere: none
Price: very little
Food: excellent. Breakfast is the best.
