As the title of this review suggests, this place is one of the few 24 hour places to eat in SF. Menu is diner fare. Can be crowded late at night. Overall, I'm satisfied and would return.

The Castro
A flourishing commercial area that acts as San
Francisco's LGBT community center and cultural heart,
the Castro is a neighbourhood welcome to everyone. As
one of the first predominantly LGBT neighbourhoods in
the United States and currently its largest, it
remains one of the epicenters of activism in the
nation. Grand theatres and glitzy shops now compete
with bars and fashionable eateries for attention,
