“Blast to the Past!”
Reviewed November 21, 2012

Excellent breakfast place this is my second time to the city and both times this was my first stop. The one I am reviewing is the St. Francis at 2801 24th street. It is an old soda fountain shop which still has elements that look straight out of the 1950s. I had an interesting mix of individuals from gluten free meat eaters to vegan and this place had enough choices on the breakfast menu to accommodate all of us. If you love that old fashion diner environment this is a great choice.

“no longer there”
Reviewed August 29, 2012

It's no longer there. you need to update your listing. There are 2 restaurants / bars in the lobby. I do not know the names. Food should be extraordinary, the chef is wonderful. Drinks expensive of course.

“Polite Staff - Strong Drip Coffee and Tequila Shots”
Reviewed April 21, 2012

Great little cafe and gathering spot in the Lobby of the St. Francis. You can have coffees or a round of tequila shots to celebrate your latest deal. Its a very busy gathering spot. Lots of people watching here. A bit of a crossroads of the world..

“The food is okay, but I...”
Reviewed November 15, 2007

The food is okay, but I love the atmosphere of this soda fountain that's been around for a very long time.
