While waiting for our next flight, we discovered a large food court and noticed that the Firewood Cafe was advertising breakfast. The mixture of scrambled eggs, bacon and potatoes seemed to fit the bill. The food was o.k. except for the fact that it came in a large carboard box rather that a plate, which made the food somewhat less... More

We had time to eat breakfast and so stopped in. When we FINALLY got our breakfast (service was horrendous), the food was good--nothing special but better than the traditional airport fare.

Not too many choices at the international end of SFO as some eateries are closed for renovations esp. where i get my fix of steak sandwich (closed). The wood fire pizza i had was not bad and i like esp fresh ingredients. most food sold at airport are mass produced or precooked but for pizza, you at least get it... More

For airport food, this pizza is really good! I've never had a bad pizza here. Fast and friendly service, I can always count on grabbing a tasty bite when at SFO airport. The price is reasonable too.

After a bad experience at the Buena Vista Café who did not like customers, Firewood Café took care of us, fixed the pizza just like we wanted. We will be back.

Was hoping for something not typical of airport quality food. Unfortunately didn't find it here. Had a veg omelet and couldn't get past the smell of the mushrooms to even eat it. Just bad. Won't be going there again.

We stopped here for a meal while waiting for a flight out. Although the pizza is baked fairly quickly in their wood fired oven, it does take several minutes so allow time for it to be prepared and baked. The crust was thin, but crisp and solid enough to hold up. They offer a reasonable variety of toppings and everything... More

On arrival at SFO we found out that our check in would be delayed so we just needed somewhere close by to sit, chill, and pass the time. Firewood was the obvious answer. Spent a couple of hours here and we never encountered any problems, as alluded to in other reviews. Quick and pleasant service with prices that were not... More
