We were staying close to The Grind Cafe and decided to stop in for breakfast. I was a bit put off by a few negative reviews on tripadvisor but however they didn't reflect our experience here. We both ordered the two eggs, any style with...More

So I when there with my friend for coffee and breakfast, asked a question very kindly to the woman who makes coffee ( pink hair) she was the rudest person I've met!! Would not recommande that place. Food was not tasty at all.

The service was fast and friendly. The pancakes we very good ( fluffy and moist). They took special orders ( egg whites) and the coffee was fresh. Coffee refills were .50.

Invited there by locals, we had a great breakfast. Quality food in a cool ambiance. Good situation, as usual you'll have to drive around to find a parking space, but you'll find one eventually. First come first serve, nothing new there, but really good food!

This was a great place to have breakfast and lunch. Very quiet and clean place The service was fast and the price was just right. The cafe sits in the heart of Haight St. and is a great spot for indoor or outdoor eating.

Three of us had lunch on December 7. We ordered our food and it was promptly served. Two of us ordered the Ruben sandwich and we both agree it was very good. Our side kick had the grilled cheese sandwich, a great blend of different...More

Food was really good. Cashier a bit unfriendly, but overall experience very good. Tuna salad was very fresh, as was the Cesar salad.

Love this place. It is just round the corner on Haight from where my friends and I are staying and it's breakfast menu is quite incredible. Spotlessly clean, with an outside seating area and friendly staff. The food is scrumptious and sets you up well...More

Delicious pancakes, what more can i say? Excellent quality/price ratio, very efficient staff. Great spot for a nice breakfast.

The area surrounding the intersection of Haight and
Ashbury streets, “The Haight” still exudes vibes of
the 1960s counterculture as a haven for vintage
clothes, music, pop posters and body piercing shops.
While the Summer of Love ended decades ago,
Haight-Ashbury has turned into a melting pot of
hippies, hipsters, and professionals. Walking through
its streets can still feel like stepping back in time.

What is the parking situation? Also, we will be a group of 6 adults and 3 children and 1 infant. This would be on Sunday, Oct. 4th. Is it possible to make a reservation so we won't be waiting in line for a table? Thanks.

I saw street parking only. The place had tables big enough for your size group (maybe having to combine 1 large amd 1 small table). It is very casual - order at then counter & they bring to table, so it's fine for kids. I... More
