JoAnn's is very good all around. Not many seats, but the breakfast menu is diverse with American and Mexican items.. we ordered from the Mexican side of the menu... the Santa Fe and Huevos entrees were very hardy and extremely tasty.

Walking through the kitchen for bathroom is a little odd...

Don't miss out on Joanne's for breakfast. We went two days in a row. It's employee owned, creative, clean and delicious.

We ate there about a month ago and have been there before. We came and there was not a wait in line and was able to get a seat in a very small space. We were eating breakfast, finished and the male waiter brought the bill and said take your time. My daughters and I were having a discussion. The cashier who was a waitress as well came over and said people are waiting to be seated you will need to leave. We got up and asked by daughters to go to the car and then told this lady what you just did was beyond rude especially since our waiter said take your time. She responded to me that there were people waiting (she is correct) and I was nice when I told you need to leave. Left a really bad feeling for me but I have enjoyed their breakfasts over the year but I am not so impressed any longer.

My twenty-something son who is living in South San Francisco for a few months said we "had to" have breakfast at JoAnn's Cafe that is up the hill from the restaurant. I'm visiting with my other son who is a high school senior. He got the pancakes & sausage (hearty meal) and I chose the Gaucho.

We are going back home tomorrow and won't have a chance to have a 2nd meal at JoAnn's on this trip, but I want to. This is a well-run, locally owned diner. Wait staff was friendly and efficient while the place was busy, but not packed, late morning on a Friday (about 10:45 when we arrived).

The Gaucho is a flour tortilla with meat, mushrooms and veggies over a bed of black beans and covered in salsa. fresh, quick and together with the good coffee that JoAnn serves, it was a hearty, healthy breakfast.

Local gem.

Decent food. It's way too much, you can share with your partner. But it's employee owned and they do a pretty good breakfast for the price. I go back again and again.
