This was the first place we ate at on our trip to San Francisco and we had a great breakfast. The staff are friendly and attentive and the place looks great. Orange juice was very expensive but nice all the same!

Cafe Mason was opposite our hotel and was the perfect location for breakfast, dinner or a meal at 4am! (jetlag!) Service was quick and staff were attentive and friendly. Food was good; lots of choice and reasonably priced.

We ate both breakfast (classic American Diner style) and great Italian pasta in the evening here. Excellent service, and value for money. Roquefort ravioli highly recommended.

I had lunch and two dinners while in town for a meeting at a nearby hotel. Good but not gourmet food at reasonable price. Fast and friendly service. No complaints.
