Had reservation, with deposit. Walked into a restaurant that was laughably behind in the kitchen and mismanaged. Initially spoke to several wait staff and then promptly ignored for 30+ minutes. Also, tables around us were left with empty plates between courses for the entire time. Food may have been great but amateur help didn't make up for it. Thanks!

What a great place to have some good eggs benedict and frech toasts in a saturday. Besides the long line, the service is super efficient and the cappucino is a reward after all. Super good choice

A very cool and cosy place for breakfast, brunch and coffee. Great food and location. I recommend going. (It can get busy - avoid rush hour, weekends, lunch times, etc. you know the drill)

Great service! Granted the decor is a little tired and furniture well past its prime, but the food is great -- original, but very San Francisco menu items. Delicious brunch selections. Always a line, so glad to finally experience this place.

We enjoyed the food at Mission Beach Cafe when we visited last week, but wished the service matched the excellent food. This place is very small, and rather than ask us to wait a few more minutes in the glorious sunshine, our party of four was wedged into a corner table that was better suited for a party of two....

We had lunch there and found that you have to go early to get a seat. This place has people lining up to get in. We had hamburgers that were delicious and were taken by surprise when the waiter asked how we would like the meat cooked. What a treat to have medium rare as many places refuse to do... More

And for good reason! We got there first thing and there was a line running up the street. They have amazing breakfast, brew local coffee, and have a great waitstaff. A pure SF staple. Make time to go here!

After researching some of the best brunches in SF for our trip, I made a reservation here. We had the huge mimosas, huevos rancheros, eggs benny and the french toast. The heuevos and eggs benny were great, and the french toast was something I'd trade my first born for. It was hands down the best french toast, maybe even breakfast,... More

Everything we had was very delicious. Flank steak fajitas were very tender and juicy. Great mimosas, French toast and pancakes! Great service. Nice cozy place. Be prepared to wait about 45min to an hour as this is a hot spot!

Thank Aztlan

Neighbourhood Profile
Mission District
From burritos to bicyclists, the Mission is the foundation for all things hip in the city. Cultural attractions, an independent arts community, sumptuous street murals and a high density of bars and cafes make this neighbourhood a magnet for young people. While terrific inexpensive food is abundant, its top-of-the-line restaurants now compete with the city’s best for fashionable diners. Indulge as the locals do by heading to Mission Dolores Park, buy some ice cream, and savor one of the most diverse neighbourhoods in the country.
