the breakfast here was pretty good. Slightly better than a diner but not as good as speciality breakfast. The omlet came packed with stuff. The hashbrowns were ok.

Walked here from our hotel. Clean, modern, simple interior. Nice selection of breakfast entrees and a la carte. Enjoyed the Toast combo and hubs had the Godfather omelet. Good quality food. Classy diner. Prompt service.

I like to eat where the locals eat whenever I go anywhere. So this place hit the spot! The breakfast here was amazing. Not too crowded, we were there around 10 and the service was good! I liked the laid-back ambiance.

We stopped off here for breakfast following a recommendation. We were impressed from the moment we stepped inside! Immaculately clean, polite friendly staff who dealt with our requests professionally and efficiently. Food was fabulous and very competitively priced. We were hugely impressed with the whole dining experience and we're sorry it was out last day in San Fran, or we... More

Close to the Holiday Inn Golden Gateway this was a perfect location to start our Californian vacation with a classic American breakfast. Friendly staff, fast service and fantastic food. Worth going back just for the crispy bacon and maple syrup!

My daughter and I make try to make a yearly trip to San Francisco and we always have breakfast at least once at Toast. The food here is really great and the service has always been good. The prices are reasonable and you get a lot for what you pay. I try to have something different each time I visit,... More

Found this place near our hotel ( holiday inn ) at Polk Street. Wide variety of breakfast with eggs. My favourite was the Egg Benedict and my kids loved the waffels with bananas. Very friendly staff and place was down to earth, efficient and clean.

The menu was great. Food even better. We were there for lunch but breakfast is served all day. The Hashbrown Hill is as good as it sounds. Do Not dine outside, no matter how nice the day is. We were continually harassed by passer by and a couple of drunks. Nothing much the restaurant could do, just avoid the situation... More

Staying in Nob Hill

Neighbourhood Profile
Nob Hill
Swanky and stylish, Nob Hill sits in the heart of the city and is home to amazing architecture and views. The hike to the top can be a challenging workout for those who forego a cable car ride, but they will be rewarded with some of the city’s most beautiful architecture adorning its peak. Originally populated with mansions after the Gold Rush, most if not all were devastated in the 1906 earthquake and fire that followed. Luckily all is not lost; storied hotels and Grace Cathedral surround Huntington Park. Having a drink or dinner while taking in the sunset and views at the "top of the Mark" is tough to beat.
