    Satiate the sweet tooth with cinnamon roll French toast; go vegan with an organic tofu scramble with veggies; or try "Fannie’s Killer Fried Egg Sandwich" loaded with eggs and bacon. Read more

    When it's busy on Sunday morning brunch you can ask to sit at the counter and maybe get seated faster.

    Much less crowded during the week, if you're looking for a place for a morning meeting. Even the basic two eggs breakfast is world class.

    Fannie's Killer Fried Egg sandwich, Huevos Barrachos & Latina Omeletta are kick-ass savory dishes. You can't go wrong with French Toast or hotcakes. Start with & share a bread pudding. BYO(champagne).

    Food was amazing! However, I'd never wait as long as I did- it's not THAT worth it. Unless you wanna wait 1.5 hrs, come for lunch after 1:30 on Sun. They should consider reservations! Lesson learned.
