    If the line is more than half a block down, expect to wait 1.5-2 hours. The food isn't worth the wait!

    My life is broken down into two distinct periods: the time BEFORE trying the Mama's Cristo, and the time AFTER trying the Mama's Cristo. You know what you need to do.

    Amazing breakfast, great service, but be prepared to wait a looong time for a table.

    Don't get the small fruits (tiny cup) for $4.50. It's way overpriced for the amount of fruit u get. Besides that the food is great and fairly priced.

    The chocolate french toast was very well balanced with fresh fruits! It wasn't too eggy like some french toast are. This was just perfect! And so filling!

  • Rieana B.

    The pan dore french toast was very tangy. It balances out very well with the homemade jam that they have! Delicious indeed! It's not something very common people order. But it was worth it!

  • Rieana B.

    The Monte Carlo is a must! You must not leave without having tried this!

  • Rieana B.

    The breakfast was so filling that we were set for all day! Delicious food and will come back for more!

  • Jose M.

    The line to get in is ridiculous. It says it opens at 8 get there at 7

    Pretty much anything. I had the Swedish cinnamon French toast with bacon. Every bite was delicious. Reminds me of home.

    They open at 8 - arrive at 7:30 to be in the first seating! While the Monte Cristo is good, the blueberry pancakes are incredible and are a MUST

    While a solid breakfast spot, it's not worth the long wait - get some baked goods to go instead.

    Waited for 2hrs! The cinnamon french toast was good. I also liked the blueberry cake. However, it doesn't worth the waiting since u can find the same orders anywhere else n save ur time n energy.

    Fantastic breakfast fare but don't go on a Sunday - the queues just aren't worth it.

    The wait in the que is worth it and the food makes up for it which is brilliant. Try and go at least once when visiting San Fran

    Dipesh Shah · September 13, 2014
  • Emiliy M.

    It doesn't matter what you order because the best thing they serve is the homemade jam for your toast! Go at 730a on Wed or Thurs to avoid the crazy lines.

    Emiliy Marino · September 11, 2014
  • JOSH C.

    It's the better to come early, otherwise you will be waiting in long time. Approx 1 hour.

    Mamas' selection of pancakes, scrambles and benedicts are worth the wait. Don't miss the homemade Kugelhopf (brioche bread with golden raisins, cinnamon, dates and almonds). Read more

  • Casey N.

    the food is solid. monte cristo is all it's cracked up to be. potatoes were not great. overall food was good but no where near the expectations you'd have after waiting an hour
