Never before I had to pay for a $17.00 hamburger and a $9.00 cup of soup. I just think they're taking advantage of tourists.

This is a good place for a quick brunch or breakfast. One can have it outside as well as it has chairs to sit outside. Had the fetta spinach suddle and puff which was really good. It has attached to it the Burger House which is of the same joint and there is a good beans burger with fries option... More

Popped in for dessert and coffee, enticed by the delicious-looking cakes and desserts on display. One of us had the triple chocolate mousse, while the other had pear tart. Neither were nearly as good as they looked, portions were small, and it was pricey for what it was. Place pleasant enough and staff helpful enough, but not a place I... More

Called in during our epic walking day of over 17,000 steps for refuelling. The sandwiches of egg& avocado and a BLT were full of filling so we swapped halfway through and both agreed that both our choices were very good. Just the right amount of fuel to set us up for a continuation of our San Francisco by foot.😀👍🏻

I have gone numerous times and always with a group. Fun, nice service, yummy food, they do not rush you. Great to eat outside. Brings back happy memories of Rome.

Near to Union square, lies the alternative to Hotel breakfast or lunch for tourists and a warm welcome for all. We loved this cafe and ate there twice on our visit to SF. The breakfasts - fresh fruit, cooked breakfasts, salads, savoury crepes and imaginative juices were all superb. I would have liked to pay less, but SF is not... More

We asked for Brick Oven Pizza- its not! It's a frozen pie crust- not what I was hoping for. The prices are too high for the quality of food. The pasta is okay and the safest menu choice. The pasta portion is large- so 2-3 people could share. Do not over order.
