    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!

    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
