A great restaurant with superb service. The breakfast was simply as good as it can be. You can tell they use the best ingredients. The atmosphere is more "hole in the wall" but that just adds to the experience.

Worth going in just for the scones they serve with each main dish! Good food, fast and friendly. Less trendy and pretentious than the places down on Chestnut Street.

There is a wide choice of restaurant in SFO but if you are prepared to take a lengthy walk down Lombard Street this is well worth it. Small friendly restaurant serving excellent food. Will go back again every time we visit :-)

This place is absolutely horrible. All the reviews we saw were good, but it was horrible....and they failed a recent health inspection. The homemade corned beef hash is just chunks of corned beef....no potatoes....and it is bad dry corned beef. The juice was good but way overpriced at $3.50,,,,service was poor. Hash Brown potatoes were cold....like refrigerated cold. Save your... More

I was out for a morning stroll w some friends, looking for a local breakfast joiny and we picked this place based on various online reviews. It's small, with maybe 10 tables. The restaurant was packed but we were able to get seated quickly. Service was friendly and prompt. Prices were normal. The menu had many options. Apart from the... More

So I have driven past this place hundreds of times, I have heard many positive things about it but never visited until now. I have to say I understand the buzz now. I went extra early on a weekend before the masses hit the place and was promptly and warmly greeted and seated. The service was sensational. Very warm, friendly... More

We LOVED Home Plate!! We were visiting SF and stayed down the road at Coventry Motor Inn. We were seeking somewhere close by for breakfast and stumbled across Home Plate. The first morning we went we were literally the only two in the restaurant (I've read a few reviews talking about how crowded it is - I'm sure that depends... More

Lombard is the ugly sister of Union and Chestnut Streets, the three parallel dining and shopping streets of San Francisco's Cow Hollow and Marina districts. While not as pretty as the others, good food is available. For breakfast, the Home Plate is the star. Not pretty, not fancy, just good food and a surprisingly large menu. If you can, go... More

A wonderful little restaurant with a delicious menu. We had breakfast - eggs, toast and fruit. We also had pancakes which were scrumptious. Definitely recommend. The wait staff are attentive and very gracious.

What a breakfast. Lovely quiet folk serving. Kitchen and cooks immaculate and love being able to view from dining area. Omelettes the best made with real eggs instead of the fake reconstituted so far from New York, Denver. From the juice to the chocolate drinks excellent and even regular coffee pretty good ( would have given 6 stars if they... More

Staying in Marina District

Neighbourhood Profile
Marina District
Beautiful homes, beautiful people, and a beautiful backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge welcome visitors to the Marina. Originally the location for the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915 (whose remnants can be seen at the Palace of Fine Arts), much of the land was filled and flattened to accommodate a world’s fair. That ample space has given way to a jogger’s paradise at the northern edge of the city. With the picturesque bay setting as its backdrop, it’s no surprise that the area has hosted numerous movie productions. Daytime activities focus on café culture and boutique shopping, while the evenings turn this neighbourhood into a party-going hotspot.
