While visiting San Francisco on business and staying in the downtown area, we stumbled across this corner diner, which runs 24/7. It was packed and for such a small establishment, the wait really wasn’t that bad. The menu offers most of the breakfast basics including...More

Good spot that’s a dinner in the heart of Union Square. I’m a New Yorker so I’m used to diners that serve a zillion things. The menu is pretty small, and they didn’t like that I tried to change my order from the way it...More

Best meal I have had since I been in the USA 🇺🇸 thanks for much for good healthy, honest food with great service. This is a very busy no frills American style diner, but I would go there again anytime.

We went here 4 times during our stay in SF, something we normally don’t do... the food is honest, really good and al freshly made in front of you. Very busy place but the staff stays really friendly under that pressure. Just go!

Visited the pinecrest diner due to the close proximity to our hotel. Its a diner, nothing fancy. The food was just ok, very greasy in my opinion. Prices are resonable for San Francisco. They stay open 24hrs a day. Be prepared to wait in line...More

Union Square
Originally home to rallies supporting the Union Army
in the Civil War, this grand square has become the
city's premier shopping and entertainment district
containing the largest number of upscale department
stores, chic boutiques, art galleries and theatres in
the city. It's a large open area where tourists and
locals gather, watch cable cars and crowds go by,
enjoy a snack, or plan their day of shopping and

I doubt it. There isn't a lot of extra room in the diner and there is no outside eating area.
