    Open 24 hours and they have milkshakes to go. Satisfied my 4am craving! Watch out in this part of town late my uber driver said!

    Sit at the counter and watch the cooks do work

    Hot links and Eggs with hash is a wonderful way to start your day as a tourist in San Fran. Friendly staff but be patient as you almost always have to queue for a booth.

    Great find!

    Love me a greasy spoon with an unsolved, noir-like mystery tied to it. (Google "Pinecrest Diner SF shooting.") I've only ever had burgers and fries here, but they never disappoint.

    Awesome Huevos Rancheros.

    Reuben here has left me to question if that is the one, what have i been eating all my life? Heavenly! Great service too. Pancakes, omelettes, fruit and cottage cheese all are fantastic!

    Rude staff, if you come alone (one person) you have to eat by the counter and can't have a table, after THEY sat you! Just rude, I left, did not eat here. Good luck.

    Ask for a side salad instead of home fries as a healthy option--they will gladly accommodate the request!

    A plus for restaurant that's open 24 hours in a city that's always asleep at night.

    Pinecrest Omelette!

  • SFist

    Old-school diner that prepares food the SF way: slightly greasy with an organic flair. This Union Square staple serves up astounding patty melts and grilled cheese, but the highlight is breakfast. Read more

    I misjudged this place. I thought it would be a tourist trap due to it's location, with bad food. It's not, It's awesome. I'm a local and eat here regularly. Super Nachos and Fried Chicken.. my faves!

    Vol Tron · April 11, 2014
