In order to get a high rating for breakfast a restaurant must have high quality ingredients, good portions and a varied menu! Then you throw in very reasonable prices ( very non-San Francisco) and the Grind earns very high marks. My wife and I walked...More

Amazing coffee, bakery and athmosphere! Highly recommended! The food looks amazing but we came only for coffee!

Friendly small cafe with a very good selection of breakfast options. On the downside found the granola in the granola and yogurt bowl much too sweet and the lattes not so special. Can opt for the oatmeal for a healthy option and more-calorific menu choices...More

Best eggs this week! Warm, friendly atmosphere frequented by locals - always a good sign. Value for money too. Thanks

This place is a great spot for a good coffee and breakfast. Only complaint I have is it’s a little pricey. Workers are very friendly as well

We had breakfast twice during our stay, and what a good value for money, and with healthy options (try the crumble with fresh fruit)... but also with yummy pancakes, great selection of toasted bread and good coffee (very big)

Doing a little "summer of love" mooching around the Haight/Ashbury area of SF requires a good breakfast and we found a top place at The Grind. Large selection of omelettes, bagels, pancakes and scramblers - scrambled eggs with some sort of filling mixed in. Portions...More

The area surrounding the intersection of Haight and
Ashbury streets, “The Haight” still exudes vibes of
the 1960s counterculture as a haven for vintage
clothes, music, pop posters and body piercing shops.
While the Summer of Love ended decades ago,
Haight-Ashbury has turned into a melting pot of
hippies, hipsters, and professionals. Walking through
its streets can still feel like stepping back in time.

I saw street parking only. The place had tables big enough for your size group (maybe having to combine 1 large amd 1 small table). It is very casual - order at then counter & they bring to table, so it's fine for kids. I... More
