This place was recommended for breakfast and I will surely do the same. Good Food, Friendly Staff, and a relaxing atmosphere. It is on the steeper side of Powell St but worth the walk. Check it out.

Walked 2 blocks from where we were staying and enjoyed tasty food; friendly and professional service; throwback classic soft jazz in intimate atmosphere with view onto Powell. I'd return without question. I can see why it crowds up as the morning ages, but it was spot on for us.

Roxanne cafe has good/great food for kinda high prices. It is nothing spectacular, but it gets the job done if you need a basic breakfast place.

Very convenient location two blocks up from Union Square right on the cablecar line. Came for two breakfasts and two dinners. Morning was definitely busier. Excellent eggs benedict with salmon and cafe au lait. Dinner was lobster ravioli one night and mushroom ravioli the next. Both very nicely seasoned and only lacked a bread basket to soak up the sauce.... More

We ate here loads of times during our stay in SF. Lovely food, with a big range of omelettes and sandwiches. Never tried dinner, though. Most of the waitresses are really friendly, but one was plain rude and shoved a tip-chart in my boyfriend's hand when he was paying, whilst hissing "service charge not included! service charge not included!". We... More

We enjoyed a nice breakfast at Roxanne Cafe. The menu offered some very creative omelets and all the food was very good. The atmosphere was cozy, the prices were moderate and the service was good.

Picture this: My last day in San Francisco after a brutal work week, it is pouring down rain, and I just need a good thing to happen in the last hours of my trip. I need to go home -- I'm tired and my flight is delayed and I need a good breakfast and coffee. So I head out of... More

As Roxannes is only metres from our hotel we called in for coffee on the first morning we were in San Francisco. Apart from good cappuccino the place has a really nice feel so we returned for lunch and a couple of breakfasts. All meals were beautiful, served quickly and with lovely staff. Plus if you can get a window... More
