I was in SF for the weekend and there was always a line. We went on Monday morning and it was only about a 10 minute wait. I had the whiskey scramble with fennel sausage. It was delicious and more than enough food. We were...More

You know you have picked the right place to eat breakfast when there is already a line outside the door at 7am. From the outside you could easily walk past and miss it. Inside the interiors are gorgeous brick walls, interesting historic objects and large...More

There is always a wait here. Most of the time it is worth it. This time I went with three others, not a good idea. Tables are really for two people so having four of us made us wait for a longer time. Food is...More

Visited Dottie's for early breakfast on the recommendation of my resident nephew. I parked a few blocks away and meandered through the homeless, along the littered, dirty, feces smeared sidewalks toward Dottie's with low expectations. But when I entered the bustling historic diner I forgot...More

Breakfast was huge and so tasty! The cinnamon strudel coffee cake is crazy good. A bit of a dive, but cozy and friendly. Service was great. Highly recommend!

South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated
vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs
and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to
find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter
for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able
to do more than just business - museums, top quality
restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call
this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized

I would assume about 7a.m. If that's your goal. The area is not the greatest there are a fair amount of homeless hanging around in the area. I felt more comfortable being in a bit of a crowd and not being the only one... More
