This was just a random found. It was our last hours in our trip and we were dreaming of pancakes whole week. Luckily we found Pat's cafe just before hopping on a cable car which starting point is only a block away. Place was crowded...More

Service was good, food was small and nothing to write mom about. Don’t think there will be a second time.

The place looks a bit creepy and has a weird smell but the breakfast is great and the waiters are very friendly... it’s also located next to the cable car start and does not have a queue to get seated compared to more touristic spots

We wanted to have a nice breakfast before heading to the airport. This place was highly reviewed and just a short walk from our hotel, so we thought we would give it a try. We had the Eggs Blackstone and the California Omelet with fresh...More

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.
