Stopped by with two girlfriends on a Saturday morning around 9am. The coffee was magnificent, the potatoes are TO DIE FOR and the eggs I had over easy, along with thick, smokey bacon... I couldn't be more impressed. The wait staff was AMAZING. The smiliest group of ladies, that made us feel so welcome. They filled up our coffees and... More

Mo's is absolute gem of a place. A quaint diner style place giving it a really relaxed feel. Plenty of choice on the menu to suit all tastes and really friendly staff. The highlight for me was the rotating grill that they cook the burgers on. I can honestly say this was one of the best burgers Ive ever had.... More

Found this while looking for somewhere for breakfast. Bingo!!! This place was amazing, fantastic food, good menu and friendly service. As we left there was a sizeable queue, and with good reason. We had bacon and eggs, which was accompanied with fried potatoes (divine!), toast and preserves. the coffee cup was continually being filled - this place was everything you... More

It's a simple but atmospheric place. The Burgers are close to the best in town. Especially the Avocado Burger is on top! I loved it! Prices are fair, bottled beer only.

We got to this place after being afraid of Mama's line... i would say I liked it better than Mama's. Great service! The restaurant has just a few tables, and the culinary is made with a lot of care! All plates have a wonderful tasty appearance!!

It was a Monday morning and we were looking for a place to get breakfast before heading out to the airport. We were walking the sidewalks of North Beach and finally stopped a local woman who was walking in the opposite direction; asked her for a breakfast recommendation. She steered us to Mo's, about two blocks from where we were... More

The burger was good, the bun was oversized, but that was good because the burger was very drippy. I ordered medium rare, it was red but still pipping hot! Perfect. The fries were ok.

We arrived at around 9:30am on a Saturday morning and were seated immediately. When we left, there was maybe a 3-5 minute wait for a table, if that. Food was your standard diner breakfast. Large portions though, so good for them. No complaints. Save yourself the hassle of one of those wait an hour type joints and go here. You... More

Staying in North Beach / Telegraph Hill

Neighbourhood Profile
North Beach / Telegraph Hill
The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian ristorante come together to create the charming neighbourhood of North Beach, once the stomping grounds for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of North Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always suitable for younger visitors, few neighbourhoods in the city exude as much European charm and style. Peruse a bookstore for the literature of Kerouac, Ferlinghetti and Ginsberg, grab some gelato and head to Washington Square for a perfect afternoon of people watching. Just east of North Beach, the hills and staircases of Telegraph Hill are a unique delight. At its peak, the art deco Coit Tower provides sweeping panoramic views of the bay and city. The beautifully landscaped Filbert Street Steps, a street too steep for a roadway, rewards those willing to hike uphill. Keep your ears open and you might even hear the squawk of the wild parrots who call this neighbourhood home.
