You won't be sorry if you get up a little early and have breakfast at this restaurant. The line starts forming at 8:00am. Be there by 7:15/7:30. It is a rather small restaurant, but tables are available outside as well. The fresh fruit that comes...More

Don't let the long line scare you off. It was so worth it. I had the Marilyn Monroe and I can't tell you how much yummy fresh fruit they pile on. It was so good. Service is fast too.

Friendly, fast service and the hash brown alone will fill you up. Nice solid breakfast and good value to start the day off right! Infant friendly as well but make sure you get there before 8am before the crowd and line.More

We stopped here for breakfast and it was well worth the 30 minute wait. When you get there you write your name on a list and wait your turn. It is a small, basic cafe that offers large portions, great tasting food, and a pretty...More

This is by far the best breakfasts on the planet.. Make sure you get there by 7am as there is a queue from 7:15 and for obvious reasons... we were in San Fran for two days and had breakfast here on both occasions

Packed busy and friendly. A great breakfast served with pride and enthusiasm. Very busy, try to be there before 7.45. Lovely food, the fruit plate was huge, fresh and delightful. Well worth the visit.

This is right next to the Holiday Inn Express and across the street from the Hyatt. It is fairly small so it normally has a waiting line, however, they hustle the food out quickly so the wait is not too long. Great breakfast value and...More

Yes. But the restaurant closes at around 2-3PM if I'm correct. The breakfast food is wonderful with huge portions. Safe travels!

If you have a Google map it is on Taylor Street and North Point., right across the street from the Hyatt. It opens at 7:00am . We never had to wait long if you get there before 7:30 am.
