Description: The Taylor Street Coffee Shop is a long-standing favorite of San Francisco offering the city fresh, tasty coffee and delicious breakfast food. We love to serve a healthy breakfast with lots of fresh fruit, but also have items such as our breakfast pizza - hash browns under scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, and more - that we know will satisfy. We keep the atmosphere casual and relaxed, the service friendly and fast, and the food hot and tasty. What more could you ask for?

“Best breakfast place in town”
Reviewed 21 April 2014

I'm in SF about once a year and every time I always have my breakfast at Taylor's or order it to go and eat at the hotel. They open at 7 am, even if the place is packed with a queue the line moves fast and it's worth the wait. Try the california omelet, it's my favorite! They also serve the famous millionaires bacon and freshly squeezed orange juice.

“Small but delicious”
Reviewed 20 April 2014

This shop was right next to my hotel and the food was really good. The prices were pretty fair, $16-$18 for an omelet, bacon, toast and fruit plus coffee. This place fills up quick in the morning, but than again its small so it looks like its always packed! go, eat, enjoy!

“Very Good”
Reviewed 17 April 2014 via mobile

This place is very good. The service is good. And the food portions are large. The millionaire bacon is good, and very large thick slided bacon which i like. But it is basically a brown sugar ham glaze on bacon and nothing worth $6. The standard bacon looked to be the same size.

Hi Troy. Thank you for the nice review. Normally the Millionaire's Bacon is about 2-3 times as thick as our standard bacon and it's cooked with pepper and brown sugar for four hours. We are happy to know you enjoyed its flavor and we hope to see you again soon.

“Rushed but delicious!”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

I searched trip advisor for a breakfast place near our hotel in Union Square - since this had the best ratings we had to try it. The narrow entryway had a line out the door on a mid-week morning but a sign that said "line moves fast." So we waited, and it did move pretty quickly! I ordered the thin swedish pancakes with berries on top - the pancakes were amazing (I'm a pancake lover and these top my list of favorites!). My boyfriend just got granola and yogurt, but he liked it. Average price, so a good value meal. I also liked that the kitchen/prep area was out in the open and you can see the cleanliness and quality preparation that goes into the food. The only reason I did not give a 5 is that the service felt very rushed - not rude but we did feel pressured to eat and run immediately. Not a leisurely breakfast for vacation, but still tasty!
