My boyfriend and I popped in for pancakes. We were on our way to Union Square and settled for breakfast here. A sign in the window was requesting a waitress to start asap. This warned us that they were probably understaffed. I ordered the banana...More

Stayed across the street at Hotel Adagio. Had a great breakfast there. Huge portions. Great waffles, eggs, potatoes. Had a good fruit/yogurt parfait. Cash only.

We went here for breakfast 4-5 times during our recent visit to San Francisco and enjoyed each of our meals there. Many different and interesting varieties of omelettes and excellent pancakes. The place can get crowded after 9:30 am or so and the service can...More

I have been going here for years and I recommend breakfast, unreservedly. I always have the Northwestern Scramble, scrambled egg, Philadelphia cheese, smoked salmon and fried onions. The service is quick and the food is always piping hot and really tasty. If you are based...More

Service was fine. Place doesn't appear to be the cleanest. Food was average. Ate her Saturday morning about 10am and it was a ghost town. Sunday ate at Lori's Diner and Monday Pinecrest and found both much better in taste, presentation and overall appearance. Olympic...More

The Olympic Flame was exactly what I expected when I enjoyed breakfast there in November 2016. An old style establishment hardly affected by the passage of time. That was part of its attraction and charm. The staff appeared a mixture of older people from various...More
