poached eggs

TERRIFIC BREAKFAST SPOT ! My wife and I were on a work related one week stay in San Francisco not long back. We found this cafe online and the reviews were quite solid. It was also a short walk from our hotel in Nob Hill which is an area we like to stay. So we fronted up here for breakfast on our first morning around 8.30am and it was pretty packed out already. We sat at a table outside and a kind server named Beach looked after us.


Our breakfast dishes tasted very good and our lattes were pretty decent too. For the next 4 days I had breakfast here every morning as my wife was attending a training seminar in Union Square from a very early hour. I did learn to arrive here soon after 8am otherwise seating inside was hard to find as it is not a large cafe. Every morning I tried a different breakfast dish though mostly variations on Eggs Benedict.


I also had a nice tasting orange juice with every meal. On our final day in San Francisco my wife rejoined me for an early breakfast and we had an excellent time savoring even moment in this well run cafe. We thanked the staff for their wonderful friendly service and our excellent meals. Great breakfast places like this are very hard to find when you are in a strange city. On our next visit to San Francisco we will have breakfast here for sure !
