I have eaten at Cove Cafe when visiting San Francisco for years. Really good cafe for breakfast and brunch, very friendly service and more than likely you will get chatting to a few of the customers as well.

We had 2 very good breakfasts at the Cove. Big portions, good welcoming, great pancakes and eggs benedict. They also have great deals for "early birds". A good start to anyone's day!

...not that I have tried that many of them. On every visit to the Cove we have enjoyed great (and usually playful, friendly) service and brilliantly good brunches. Try it if you are in the area.

Found the Cove after a nice walk around the Castro, back here in the UK we would call it a "Greasy spoon" type cafe and its just what we wanted.

Good basic food from breakfast to dinners. the service style is unique and for the most part very freindly with the staff talking to you as though you just saw them last week.

The food was of a good standard with fair sized portions, the only problem we had was on our second visit the server either misheard my order or made some other error and brought me a different item from what i wanted. I didnt wish to cause a fuss so ate most of it and it was still good

Nice location, not glitzy and in your face, good value, very good community spirit with between the staff and would definatly go back on another visit to San Francisco
