This place continues to be the best breakfast venue in San Francisco. The avocado frittata special with butter milk and dill toast is one of the best breakfasts I've ever had. Surprisingly spicy. Very friendly staff and a lovely atmosphere!

Tiny. Hard to find. You'll probably have to queue. Put you off? If that does then you are a fool. This is THE place for breakfast in San Francisco, maybe anywhere. Food is FABULOUS, never had a better breakfast. The Millionaire's bacon a particular favourite. Do yourself a favour, eat here, no matter how far you have to travel. Even build a holiday round it. Bucket list breakfast.

We read all about Dottie's and just had to give it a try. After gladly waiting 30 minutes we were seated in the adorably, quaint dining room. We started by sharing a scone and the whiskey blueberry crumble which were EXCELLENT - a fantastic start. Then came my brunch which is where things get disappointing- I ordered the pulled pork omelette which seemed very different and worth a try. The eggs were way too runny, the home fries were also undercooked and the chili corn bread which sounded amazing was tasteless. My husband ordered the chorizo and eggs and his too were runny. We were so disappointed as this place has all the right creativity and ingredients to be fantastic! It just missed the mark.

The variety to choose from is incredible. The daily specials are incredible, but it is hard to go wrong with the standard menu. The bacon was outstanding and the french toast was beyond exceptional; it is absolutely the best breakfast item I have ever had.

This is a popular restaurant but well worth a visit. The food is varied and excellent with prompt service. I did find the portions are very large, which could explain why the prices are a bit higher than a boring breakfast place. The taste is certainly worth it.

It has only one downside: there is almost always a line. It did move quickly and I'm very glad I waited. I'd go back and I certainly rate it highly.
