    The best diner in the area according to the local I spoke to. The portions are large and the reuben and club sandwiches are great.

    They say "we serve the best breakfast of san francisco". I don't know if it is real (In sf for a couple of days no time for comparison) but a stop at this diner could represent a good experience.

    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!

    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
