    It says "Home of Little Pancakes" on the sign, and Sears has been turning out delicious ones since 1938. You get 18 in an order, complete with warm maple syrup and soft butter. Breakfast nirvana. Read more

    I liked the special with corned beef hash and pancakes and hash Browns. And the coffee is piping hot and hits the spot

    The breakfast food is out of this world delicious! Get here earlier (around 7:30) to avoid waiting in line. Get the Salmon Benedict, the Strawberry Waffle, the Swedish pancakes, or the classic ones.

    Get the Swedish pancakes. Sears has been turning out delicious ones since 1938. You get 18 in an order, complete with warm maple syrup and soft butter. This is an iconic SF dish.

    Pancakes A+. The corned beef hash really is great! It's shredded. And the poster referenced elsewhere that has the N-word is a Norman Rockwell Civil Rights poster. Nothing derogatory. I'm black, btw.

    18 Swedish pancakes small but good Denver omelette the best, French toast was ok, Sydney amber gives you a little bit of everything. Hash browns awesome, bacon over cooked and lemonade to sweet.

    Great old diner feel with lots of photos of San Fran being built. Pancakes with syrup and lingonberries was great. Bacon was dry but the apple chicken sausages were amazing! Fast service!

    Eggs Benedict is one of the better that I've had in SF. Perfect eggs, good hollandaise sauce, great English muffins.

    Corned Beef Hash is awesome. Al's Combination is the best of everything at Sears. Corned Beef Hash, Hash Browns, 2 eggs your way and 9 silver dollar pancakes!

    Hashbrowns were the best my hubby has ever had, creamy in the middle & crispy on the outside. I had the sweetish pancakes they were great

    Nice old fashioned atmosphere and interior. Reasonable prices and down to earth. If you can avoid the main seating area it is much quieter.

    Amazing breakfast; there will be a line but it moves quickly; Do not be afraid to sit at the counter, you may even have more space there.

    This has got to be the BEST breakfast in town and the perfect way to start the day. The corned beef hash is amazing but be sure to bring your appetite!

    The food is outstanding, especially the Swedish pancakes, however the portions are quite small and on the expensive side. Great experience overall though.

    Didn't try the famous pancakes but the eggs Benedict were spot on. The waiting time to be seated was under 5mins, which is something I loved.

    Pancakes are good - normal I would say. Omelets like everywhere else in the US - totally overcooked. Scrambled eggs are indistinguishable from omelets. It has wifi, pwd is pancakes.

    We were seated right away, (for dinner) but the food took an hour to arrive and the place wasn't busy. Other than that, it was delish, and a good variety of food!

    If you happen to be here for dinner, you could ask for a not-on-the-menu 1/2 order of Swedish pancakes for desert. They'll do it. It's good.

    Great for breakfast (love the pancakes), don't go for dinner--we were seated immediately but no one came to wait on us for a while and we left.

    Ask the hostess cor countwr seating when you arrive and she will check with the line- because it is a no wait proposition 80% of the time.

    New York steak, peppercorn sauce, medium rare. Highly recommend it--very delicious. Get it with mashed potatoes to top things off. Great dish.

    Place is crazy busy on the weekends, but weekdays is fine. Sit at bar top for prompt service. AJ Special is a good option.

    Great coffee & service. Counter seating is good if you're solo but if you get here before 7:30 am weekdays table seating not a problem. Great eggs Benedict!

    Sad to say, Flavours have gone downhill. Hash browns, no longer crispy, corned beef hash, dry. Syrup is now a "Costco knock-off" of maple syrup. You have to ask and they bring a small 1.5 oz bottle.

    Known for the Swedish pancakes but the Denver omelette was great. No cell reception in the restaurant. Not the best for the price.
