We came to visit San Francisco and I’m telling you this place is amazing the service and the Food. We ate here every morning and when we visit again we’ll be back. Alejandra was amazing. It was 4 off us and the prices are good. You have got to try this place❤️❤️

We are from out of town and came here on a whim - breakfast was excellent! We had an omelet and pancakes and all ingredients seemed very fresh. Would highly recommend!

Love this place. This was the first restaurant I visited when I moved to the bay area 18 years ago and I still go back. I wasn't able to visit much over the pandemic but I am so glad they made it through and still serve my favorite breakfast. Omelets are proper with more filling than egg and the country potatoes perfect on the side. Orange juice is always fresh squeezed, they have hazelnut coffee which I can't seem to find anywhere else, and if you're ever in a hurry and grab a breakfast burrito to go from this place you will be happy you did. Did I mention the donuts? I'm usually too full to get them but when I do the crullers rule.

This is what used to be called a "greasy spoon" restaurant. I give it max stars for taking me back to my youth, minus the cigarette smoke (obviously).I was in town for Big Bad Con 2022 and needed breakfast. This place did the trick. I ordered vegetarian options and donuts.Don't pass on the donuts IMO!Thank you for the great service ??Vegetarian options: eggs and hash browns

Best Donuts in the City. Open 24 hours. Great for late night snack attacks. Customer service is top notch. They even fill the donuts there for you if you want it

Great local restaurant - everything we've ordered there has been good! We especially like the breakfast sandwiches and breakfast sides, and the donuts are also a nice special treat.

I really wanted to like this place and has all the makings of 5 star review because the food is good but the basics are lacking 1) we were not greeted and I asked table for two and one member staff pointed to the back open tables none cleaned or wiped down 2) asked for a booth for two and denied because I assume owner a young man said they are reserved for 4 despite less than busy hour and other customers of 1 and 2 parties already seated in other booths. The food is good, service is adequate, but the assumed owner just sat on the high tops and was on the phone and not paying attention his Customers. The signs need updating, overhead menus, donuts, and restrooms are missing. The path to the restroom is unmarked to the rear past the kitchen between a cart of supplies and groceries and fridges in the back. The bathroom might be ok for staff, but maybe needs organization and less clutter. The business lacks identity no business history, specials, menu highlights, personality or friendliness. Just food service and promise to make anything you want. There is a sign to be kind, but it’s misplaced. We ordered both the corn beef hash and Benedict food is good, no fruit or garnish. The kitchen is located adjacent to the high top bars, but not utilized for customers, but for staff meals and owner to sit. I asked for the bill and the staff member left the machine for me to process the payment. We left the same way we came in with no goodbyes just someone at the register counting receipts. There is take out, but a little confusing as the pickup is located past the register between kitchen and donut display. As I said the basics, something the other brunch places in the area make it a point of emphasis to balance great food and experience. I hope the owner takes this feedback to heart.

I've been eating donuts here for the last one year and I love this place. The Apple Fritters here are second to none and are the standard that all others are compared against. All the other donuts are fantastic as well, but my husband and I always stop here for a Fritter and a coffee when we deserve a treat.

Five stars for the excellent service! Our food came our quickly and our glasses were never empty - coffee or water. The food was good. We had a wide variety

I have been coming here for the Lox benedict for 10+ years and I love this place. It is very, very unpretentious.

Not just for donuts! Great place for breakfast and lunch too. On my latest lunch visit, I had a great spinach salad, topped with bacon with a great mustard balsamic dressing on the side. The coffee is great too.
