My wife and I ate here before a SFSO concert. The place is small, but the wait was not long, even on a Friday evening. We both had the chicken pesto sandwich, which was very good, as were the fries. We had a slice of the show-special cheesecake for dessert, which was delicious! The chef came out and interacted with the guests, and even cleared some of our dishes. The staff was very friendly. We loved that this place was a relaxed, down-to-earth place in the heart of the city!

A good place to pop in and have breakfast, very accommodating for the fussier eaters amongst us, more than happy to take special requests.

Quick service, nice food. The coke was a bit odd though - tasted like water! But other than that, a perfectly fine diner.

We went there right before seeing Aladdin. The service was impeccable. The server and busser was so attentive to our table. We got our food really quick. They were very accommodating. The food was just okay. The Korean beef tacos were amazing, but the rest of the food was just average. Prices were super fare and portions were actually pretty large. It was super convenient to go there right before a show. We will definitely go again thanks to the great service!

Slow service. Hostes sat at her station eating breakfast. ..There were 2 orders of bacon. Both ordered extra crispy, both came out like soggy Canadian bacon. Also they ran out of Bloody Mary mix on a Sunday morning- AND there was a bartender ? Quick meal on the run might be good choice.
