Bottomless Cafe Au Laits. Service was excellent. Proportions were very solidly sized. Friendly staff.

I stayed in the hotel next to Home plate so I went for breakfast. The prices were very high for a basic breakfast. I had two eggs over easy, two slices of bacon and two medium sized pancakes for over 16 dollars. The pancakes were...gummy in the middle and the eggs.not seasoned. I could not finish my meal. The atmosphere and service was good, but the food was not. I could not recommend this eatery.More

2nd time having breakfast at this restaurant. Unfortunately this last time was disappointing. First the decor seems fresh and light when you walk in, however, when walking towards the table you notice the white fabric chairs are stained and dirty. Second we were asked if...we were ready to order and we were, but then the waitress said one moment and walked away. She never came back and we had to ask someone else to take our order. Third, we asked for a little cup of salsa and we were charged $1.50. Thought that was a bit much considering we had ordered breakfast items that totaled $100.00+. I think what was a bit unusual were signs on the walls indicating patrons would be surcharged for cleaning "incidentals" associated with intoxication. Just not an overall great dining experience.More

Tried to have an early midweek breakfast. Nice enough staff but a little disorganized. Coffee was hot and good but pancakes were raw in the middle. Sent them back. Settled on toast . An expensive breakfast but everything in S.F. Is expensive. Better places to...eat in my opinion., Mel’s across Lombard not much better. Try bagel places in the area.More

Cool spot for brunch. Services is fast, food is good and portions pretty sizeable. Never had a cocktail here but I saw a sign on the table, and they offer bottomless mimosas. I THINK it’s $25 and only good for one hour and 15 min....I had the roasted chicken omelet and as healthy and boring as it sounds, it tasted super good. The tomatillo sauce was everything. We ate about noon time, and I didn’t eat again until dinner around 7pm. Portions are pretty fabulous here. The hubby got a basic breakfast, but it tasted better than just basic. Would come back again and host a girl’s brunch.More

Loved having breakfast here - food tasted good, great presentation and excellent service. Restaurant is a little further out from touristy part of lombard street / hyde street. I’d come back again with next in San Fran!

We went 2 days in a row Be prepared to be patient when it is busy Service is efficient but appears they may be short staffed. Pancakes were excellent which is unusual. Coffee was hot, which is sadly also unusual. Prices are reasonable, food is...good, servers are trying! Highly recommendMore

I don’t really leave any reviews at all but this place triggered me to do so! My friend recommended this place. So i went and the service was awful! This place is such a disappointment! In terms of their bottomless mimosa they will require all...the party to get it even though one or two people are not drinking or don’t drink at all but they still gonna require you to get it cos it’s requirement for them which is ridiculously obnoxious! The service crews are gonna talk about you if you have any comments about their service and food. It’s not worth it to go on this place just to eat breakfast. Their hash browns were dry and bland and the staff didn’t seem to know how to check out of state IDs. The Manager is not even trying to make accommodations at all! Would not recommend this place!More

On a Sunday morning, there was a line outside but it moved quickly. Coffee was unexpectedly tasty. Loved the eggs Benedict. I think they make the hollandaise. The chorizo omelette was large and full of meat. They had a soothing “lounge”background music playing, which was...noticeably different from many places. Service was fast, considering the crowd. Some of the tables are near the door. This is a cold place most mornings of the year. Sit farther inside.More

despite the line outside this place, the food is worth the wait and hype. fresh, interesting and a pleasant dining experience (not too loud but not too quiet, either). i got the cafe au lait - will probably try something else because i thought it...was quite bland. but their food is amazing. i tried their home plate fritata and swapped the potatoes with a rather generous serving of fresh fruit.More

Great food, disappointing service. I went there twice, the food quality is absolutely amazing. The first time we waited 45 min to be seated, so it was a sign that the local is very popular, that was the reason we webt back again. Second time...the service was totally disappointing, one of waitresses was impolite. So I recommend this restaurant for amazing food but be aware you need to be patient with them cause they are not. Obviously they have lots of customers they do not care if they loose few.More

Marina District
Beautiful homes, beautiful people, and a beautiful
backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge welcome visitors to
the Marina. Originally the location for the
Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915 (whose
remnants can be seen at the Palace of Fine Arts), much
of the land was filled and flattened to accommodate a
world’s fair. That ample space has given way to a
jogger’s paradise at the northern edge of the city.
