This was the typical american breakfast I had been waiting for and couldn't find in New York. Fantastic omlette with potato rosti, toasted muffins and unlimited coffee refills. Sat outside in the warm on the patio area and soaked up the San Francisco vibe. A great place and I will seek it out when I return.

Two of us each had the Crab Benedict and one of us had the Combination omelette. We also shared a Belgian waffle. The Crab Benedict was very good with eggs poached as they should be. The Combination omelette was huge and very filling. The Belgian waffle was thick and delicious. Meals were served hot in a small and friendly atmosphere.

Really not sure what the fuss is with this place. It was nothing special as far as we experienced. Decor is tired, sevice was OK, fruit platter was predominately melon. Sorry, just didn't get it.

We found this restaurant on Groupon and were glad we did! The food was great and much more than enough. We ordered the Hobo Platter, which we could have ordered just one of as there was more than enough food for two. The service was fast and polite, and prices not bad at all for SF. It is a very...

It's principally a breakfast joint, no frills neighborhood eatery. The scrambles, omelets, and eggs Benedict are commendable; seasoned very well. The veggie omelet was the star of our table. For SF, servings were large. The put down is the coffee.

This is a no frills, great breakfast spot. I'd recommend the Fat Crab Benedict, it's loaded with crab claw meat and a great hollendaise sauce. Entrees are between $10-$20. Very good service. This place is about the food, not the atmosphere.
