“Great food, price, atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2014 via mobile

It may well be 'only a diner' but my friends and I loved this place! Great for breakfast, lunch or supper, we called here several different times of day during our stay and were never disappointed! Great wholesome fresh food cooked to order, good potions and the prices were great too! All staff were super friendly as well! We loved it!!

“Great breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2014 via mobile

Pinecrest is just want you want to start a day sight-seeing in SF. Had a great breakfast there of pancakes, an omelette, hash browns. Everything cooked perfectly and served fast by a nice waitress. What else could you want?

“Eating Experience”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014

This is a great nostalgic diner busy and bussling, The plates of food are huge the Fish and chips are rated as good by my kids, a little on the expensive side but you need to experience what a diner is all about, The staff are friendly and helpful the kids enjoyed it greatly. If you are an Australian some meals ask if you can share 1 meal as they are big or you take home the doggy bag.

“Typical Diner - just very good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014 via mobile

Pinecrest is a typical American Diner and as such neither innovative or gourmet. But what they serve is very good and it's served by friendly staff. Pinecrest is open 24h and located near Union Square.
