“ONCE IS NOT ENOUGH”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

The break fast place has a lot to offer to every one. Their omlettes are very delicious. Pan cakes are heavenly. Coffee is unlimited till you say no. I visited Loris many times this visit. Their vintage cars are added attraction. Waiters and other staff are excellent in their manners.

“Step Into the Past”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

50's style restaurant with all of the fixing to help you relive those days gone by. The atmosphere in Lori's really does take you back. From the Edsel in the showroom to the red booths and antiques you will not be disappointed. Food served quick just like a Diner should be. Portions were large and food excellent. Milk Shakes are a must and if you have room try one of the desserts which seem to be super sized. Great for the whole family.

“Good meal”
Reviewed 13 August 2014 via mobile

Came here first night in San Francisco, was very jet lagged! Nice burger meal, ok service, lots to look at. Could do with being a bit cleaner though.

“All American Diner”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

My first experience in an all American Diner which in the past have only been seen on TV and Happy Days!! Not at all disappointed and as I thought it would be. Big cheap meals, not particularly healthy or good for the waistline but served by a cheery waiter and quick. Loved the decor and the old cars and bric a brac. The booths were cosy and the wifi was free so that is such an added bonus when travelling.

“Not bad”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

The prices are good and the diner feel is much what you would expect. The staff is friendly, especially the front register ladies. The food is also what you would expect for a diner so no surprises there. It isn't as packed and stroller unfriendly as many other locations in San Fran and I didn't see one cracked out vagrant posted up for the day in this restaurant either. Good stuff
