“Best 24-hour diner a block from Union Square”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

Friendly, efficient staff and great food, reasonably priced. That place can get crowded so go early or a little late or just stand in line and chat with the friendlies.

“Look for this 24-hour diner.”
Reviewed 15 July 2014

Our hotel was in Union Square in San Francisco, and we were looking for breakfast that was fast and reasonably priced. We tried other places in the area but found that the Pinecrest was one of the better choices. It offers the standard breakfast dishes (eggs, waffles, French toast, etc.) as well as really good hash browns. Service was quick.

We can't speak for the other meals, but breakfast was good.
