Hands down the best scrambles and egg dishes in the entire Bay. I've been to Mama's, Bette's Oceanview Diner, Rick and Anne's, etc., and this is my fave place. My only complaint? I don't get why the potatoes can't be better--it's the easiest thing on the menu!
After reading all the great reviews my husband and I waited about 30 mins to be seated. The place is small and we knew we'd have to wait, no problem. But the staff had attitude and once they served us, they never came back. I asked for a refill of coffee and it took nearly 15 mins for the waiter to come back.
The food is nothing to write home about. We had a simple breakfast. I had eggs and a muffin and my husband had pancakes. It wasn't bad but it was just that- eggs and pancakes. What was I expecting? I live in Southern CA where we have numerous non chain places for breakfasts and just about all are better and less expensive.
I wouldn't waste my time waiting in line for less than average food and rude staff.
Great brunch. Reasonably priced (around $15 per person including tip). Location isn't that great... but the food more than makes up for it. Juices are VERY refreshing and the cut fruit looks (and tastes) awesome!
What an oasis! Snuggled in the grime of Jones street in downtown SF is a cafe worth the wait in line. Delicious and adventurous down-home cooking. Wonderful homemade breads, strong coffee, fresh fruit and amazing french toast. I had the black bean cakes and eggs with jalapeno corn bread, not your ordinary breakfast. Fairly priced. Get there early or be prepared to stand in line for 30-40 minutes.
Dottie's is a dive, no doubt about it. But the large portions of inventive egg dishes and homemade baked goods assure that there's a line out the door 30-45 minutes long every weekend morning. Not quite Mama's, though worth consideration if you're in the Union Square area.
