A family visit for breakfast. Had to wait 45 min for some of our orders. Something never showed up. The food was cold and the waiter was very busy and didn't respond to our wishes.

The food is relatively basic fare. It's a good spot for lunch or breakfast but not the best option for dinner as the menu selections are more like what you'd have at lunch. The service was fast and friendly and we also had a live...More

We ate here twice during a three-day trip to SF. Very good food, good variety, good value. Service is friendly. Would definitely go back. Pick up a macaroon on the way out!

We had a quick breakfast here on a Sunday morning. David's is a good, old fashioned American establishment but somehow it also reminded us of some European hotel meals we have had in the past... not sure why. Maybe it's because there are several little...More

We have eaten here 3 or 4 times now on 2 different trips. Deli style plates, wonderful corn beef sandwiches, great soups, great breakfasts. Don't let the outside appearance fool you. Need to eat here at least once on a trip to San Fran,
