Have been here a few times as we live in the area. The food is undeniably tasty but I wouldn't wait the usual 2-3hours. If you're happy to put your name down and go elsewhere for a coffee while you wait then this may not...More

Wake up early and get there as it opens to get one of the first tables-although it would be worth the wait. The biscuits were phenomenal and the potatoes aren't to be missed. It's an adorable little restaurant with a really cool atmosphere.

Do not miss the lemon ricotta pancakes! House made sausage was so delicious too. Plan on waiting awhile in the weekend but know it is worth the wait! Service was fabulous, too!

The lemon ricotta pancakes with maple syrup are the best thing on the menu. My breakfast also included well seasoned deep fried potato chunks that were also very good. The house made pork sausage patties were overcooked to the point of dryness, and my eggs...More

Plow was out of the way from where we were staying but the reviews were so good we thought it was worth the trip. We were right. I would fly back to San Francisco just to have Plow's biscuits with honey butter again! The egg...More
