First time here and the food was amazing. Quick service and the food was hot and yummy. Prices are very reasonable just make sure you have cash (cash only). Will return next time for lunch

There is nothing spectacular about this dive, other than decent food, prices, and service. On the other hand, is a dive coffee shop! I always order corned beef hash, extra crispy no matter what breakfast spot I visit. will honestly state that this was the BEST one I ever got. It was just the way I like it and will... More

Basics, small family run, reasonable prices for San Francisco. Real potato hash browns. Locals frequent.

Went to this little dive for breakfast and the food was surprisingly good. This place is not for the faint of heart - nothing fancy here. Just a counter and the best hash browns ever. I had Joe's Special and was thoroughly pleased with my meal.

I'm actually really surprised that I did not enjoy the food more. I went in with high expectations since the reviews are great and there were son many people constantly waiting outside for seats. This little coffee shop is small and only features two other tables for four besides the main counter top table in the center. I would not... More

Love this place. Small old style diner. The prices are cheap and the breakfast is excellent. Try the French toast or the pancakes, you won't be disappointed .

Following on from what other people have already mentioned, if we hadn't read the reviews on this place beforehand we would have walked straight past - it's a good job we didn't! Service was fast,food was tasty and it was very cheap ($16 for mine and my wife's breakfast). The place is a dive but the food is good,great for... More

We ended up eating here twice because it was so close to our hotel and the food was delicious. I saw the reviews before our trip and planned to go here. We almost turned around after seeing it though. It doesn't look like the cleanest place. We decided to give it a go though. There were lots of locals there... More
