We stayed at the Cow Hollow and had breakfast at both Mel's Drive In (opposite) and Home Plate (100 yards down the road). Both were very good but Home Plate edged it because it was a more personal experience (being smaller) and the prices were more reasonable. We both had "The Home Run" which was superb especially the French toast.... More

Walked down from the Cow Hollow Inn, and we were not disappointed! The food was top-notch and the service was excellent. Omlettes and pancakes were huge & superb. Highly recommend!

We had breakfast 2 mornings. The food was amazing and they even serve free treats( a type of pastry with their own made jelly) . The restaurant is small but, if you have to wait, it is worth the wait. The service was also excellent!!!

My taste buds were awakened by a creative, well-constructed, blend of diliciousness. The potato pancakes, homemade preserves, and biscuits were wonderful. This place is special. If you are looking for an extraordinary breakfast, RUN, do not walk, into Home Plate.

Small, crowded, and noisy, but good food with interesting options (like the potato&carrot hash browns). Surprisingly large number of offerings given how small the kitchen is. Service is prompt. Prices are better than Mel's or IHOP which are nearby.

Recommended by manager of our hotel we headed down for breakfast. Small but busy 'cafe' style business with blackboards as well as menu's depicting their fayre (great for us 'oldies')! All food is freshly prepared, plentiful and piping hot, traditional porridge was delicious. Others had eggs (in various guises) with ham, cheese, chorizo, mushrooms, peppers, tomatoes, hash browns, toast, muffins?... More

A great restaurant with superb service. The breakfast was simply as good as it can be. You can tell they use the best ingredients. The atmosphere is more "hole in the wall" but that just adds to the experience.

Worth going in just for the scones they serve with each main dish! Good food, fast and friendly. Less trendy and pretentious than the places down on Chestnut Street.

Staying in Marina District

Neighbourhood Profile
Marina District
Beautiful homes, beautiful people, and a beautiful backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge welcome visitors to the Marina. Originally the location for the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915 (whose remnants can be seen at the Palace of Fine Arts), much of the land was filled and flattened to accommodate a world’s fair. That ample space has given way to a jogger’s paradise at the northern edge of the city. With the picturesque bay setting as its backdrop, it’s no surprise that the area has hosted numerous movie productions. Daytime activities focus on café culture and boutique shopping, while the evenings turn this neighbourhood into a party-going hotspot.
