I wanted an authentic seafood breakfast in San Francisco and having read the reviews of Home Plate we set off next morning try it out. We'd heard of queueing potentially being necessary, what we weren't prepared for was to queue outside in the misty cold SF morning. You arrive at the small premises and if full you put your name...

Quick place to grab something filling for breakfast. It's a little small inside, so the earlier you get there the better. They have a large variety on their menu.

The bacon here was so, so good. So good that I made my friend go back a second time so I could have it again. Thick cut applewood, smoked bacon with a touch of maple syrup and chili flakes. Yum, yum good! I also had the Chorizo and Eggs, so did my friend, and it was bland and not spicy.... More

We were staying at the chelsea inn down the road and found this place on trip advisor for breakfast on our last day. Really wish we'd found it sooner! The staff were friendly and helpful. The food and drinks were amazing and all homemade in the open kitchen which you can see. I love being able to see how the... More

I do not get it..... If you have other options ???? It is a small, very, very noisy, crowded-tight seating, breakfast establishment. The food is ok......nothing special.... Perhaps we visited on an "off" day?.....

We visited when staying at the Coventry Motor Inn nearby and were very pleased with the very reasonably priced cooked breakfast (Two Fried Eggs, 3 Pork Link Sausages and Hash Browns) and coffee all served by friendly staff. Highly recommended small restaurant that is very popular for breakfast.

We stayed at the Cow Hollow and had breakfast at both Mel's Drive In (opposite) and Home Plate (100 yards down the road). Both were very good but Home Plate edged it because it was a more personal experience (being smaller) and the prices were more reasonable. We both had "The Home Run" which was superb especially the French toast.... More

Walked down from the Cow Hollow Inn, and we were not disappointed! The food was top-notch and the service was excellent. Omlettes and pancakes were huge & superb. Highly recommend!

We had breakfast 2 mornings. The food was amazing and they even serve free treats( a type of pastry with their own made jelly) . The restaurant is small but, if you have to wait, it is worth the wait. The service was also excellent!!!

Staying in Marina District

Neighbourhood Profile
Marina District
Beautiful homes, beautiful people, and a beautiful backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge welcome visitors to the Marina. Originally the location for the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915 (whose remnants can be seen at the Palace of Fine Arts), much of the land was filled and flattened to accommodate a world’s fair. That ample space has given way to a jogger’s paradise at the northern edge of the city. With the picturesque bay setting as its backdrop, it’s no surprise that the area has hosted numerous movie productions. Daytime activities focus on café culture and boutique shopping, while the evenings turn this neighbourhood into a party-going hotspot.
