This is a treat: trendy, relaxed, original, arty-farty, noisy, laid-back and truly great place. I met with friends and had a very tasty weekend special, the Sandhya poached eggs made to perfection with crispy bacon and delicious avocado. Strange they only serve filter coffee though and no expresso. And the bathroom is strangely close to the tables. The service is... More

The best burger and malt you can get anywhere is HERE! There's usually a 30-45min wait and it is worth it! This is still the same place my grandparents took me too when I was a little girl. The menu is large and has enough variety to please any picky eater! The vintage diner motif is so cute and kitchy.

We ate breakfast here once and ice cream once. They have a great selection for carnivores and vegans. The staff is super nice and helpful. Everything we had was delicious.

I had a brilliant brunch in this unlikely spot. It is essentially a 1950's diner that has not been touched since then. The food was plentiful and delicious. I look forward to going back soon. The ultra-hipster staff was totally professional and friendly.

This place was a soda fountain years ago, and it has retained the atmosphere and decor of an old street corner soda fountain - but what great food! There were three of us: my husband, our adult daughter, and me. Our daughter raved about her "Thing My Spuds," which are potatoes with melted cheese, salsa, sour cream and green onions.... More

There are many reasons why the St. Francis is a family favorite. First, there is the overall authentic quality. Next, everyone who works there is friendly and kind... everyone is welcome there. As a vegan, I am blissful between their vegi stir fry or blueberry pancakes. I have heard from family that non veg choices are delicious. The "BORAXO" hand... More

We came for our final breakfast in SF. It was great service and good food, to the point that we ate too much and had to walk it off immediately afterwards.

A friend suggested St. Francis and we have thanked him several times since. I had the French toast with Blueberries which was some of the best I have ever had. Make sure to get the real Maple syrup. My wife had the spinach and cheese omelet and was equally happy. Visit the mission and make sure to visit St. Francis... More
