Great little place to have breakfast. Delicious omelettes & kids loved their pancakes (they have a kids menu). Food just needed a touch of seasoning with salt & pepper, nevertheless a decent breakfast option.

Great spot for breakfast. I hadn’t been there in years and had forgotten how truly amazing the millionaires bacon was, a ton of flavor, both sweet and peppery and quite filling. What was really impressed with this visit was the service, not typical diner nasty,...instead she was very attentive, refilled my tea without charge, was able to pay the bill quickly. A good experience and great bacon.More

Just wonderful. I had the Blackstone Benedict with made with candied bacon and a beautiful, generous serving of fresh fruit. This is a tint place with eight tables and one server, but don’t be deceived. These folks know what they’re doing.

My "go to" in SF. The Norwegian Eggs Benedict with Wasabi Hollandaise is absolutely delicious. It's SO good I usually order it every time.

I highly recommend this spot for a good basic breakfast. The coffee was the best that I have had in the area. There really isn’t a good excuse for bad coffee, but so many places do not make it well. The breakfast was very good....I ordered an omelette which was cooked well and it was huge. The wait person was friendly and efficient. My only criticism is that it came with one piece of toast instead of two. The restaurant was not overly crowded which is important to me when dining inside.More

We were here two times, the first time just for drip coffee to go, and the other time for a sit down breakfast. The drip coffee was ok but not wonderful. The sitdown breakfast, however, was very good. We had the pimped up hash and...the forentine benedict and both had excellent flavor and were hearty breakfasts that carried us for most of the rest of the day. Service was relatively quick it was overall a great experience. Our server (Noi) did everything except cook and she did it without making it look difficult or like she was rushing. The sit-down area is small so get there early if you want guaranteed seating. We were there only a few minutes after they opened and they were half full already.More

We were staying at the local (3 minute walk) Hotel Nikko and came here on three consecutive days-largely for the Millionaire’s Bacon! The pancakes were light and fluffy and a good choice of eggs. Would recommend!

This is a small restaurant with limited room and limited seating. Depending on when you arrive, you will likely have to queue although it moves fairly quickly. In part, because the chairs are singularly uncomfortable so nobody stays very long. The food selection is good,...the quality excellent and quantity very generous. That said, it’s expensive for a breakfast, but at least you probably won’t need lunch!More

Nice little coffee shop that does a good selection of food. Everything was tasty and seasoned well. I ordered breakfast tea and the water wasn’t particularly hot. I also ordered the chicken sausages as a side and they were a little grizzly in places. Overall...though, it was a good place to eat and I would go back.More

Ate here because of the rating......to say the least it was a bit overrated. Should have read the recent reviews, they more accurately reflect this restaurant. Coffee was luke-warm and average tasting. Saw the waitress pour water into an orange juice before serving it to...another customer. Hot chocolate drink was a package mix stirred in hot water. Food was OK, but not worth the price. Maybe the Tripadvisor analytics are mixed up on this one.More

I have no idea why this has the ratings it does. Food, average. Coffee terrible. My $5 hot chocolate was a Swiss Miss stirred into hot water with a plop of canned whip cream to cover up the fact that it wasn’t real hot chocolate....Sitting at the first table meant I could see into the kitchen area. Saw the waitress open fridge, grab one of several pre-pored orange juice glasses. All were 3/4 full. She pulled one out, filled the last 1/4 with tap water, stirred quickly, and served it to the table next to ours. Just abysmal. Cafe is located in such a sketchy area that I’d have turned back if my husband hadn’t have been there. Dirty, garbage everywhere, scary people loitering around. Now Taylor Street itself is not all bad. We were on Taylor up in the Nob Hill area. Totally safe and clean… but this area is down in the tenderloin area. Even the hostess at our place warned us to stay away (she scribbled out that area with her pen… on a map 😂) This city’s restaurants automatically attach a “employee benefit “ charge onto your bill so if you were inclined to tip the waiter, that’s just MORE money. What a mess.More

I walked to the Taylor Street Coffee shop based on the high ratings on Trip Advisor. My experience there tells me something isn't quite right. The neighborhood is filthy with human waste on the sidewalks (hence watch your step in the title). The coffee was...weak and just barely warm. I upgraded to the "Millionaire bacon", as I hadn't heard of it before. The bacon was very greasy and full of fat, I wouldn't recommend it. One slice of bread for the breakfast, and a small orange wedge for a garnish. The restaurant was cold as the door was left open. How this place gets the ratings it has is a mystery. Perhaps it has changed ownership recently?More

I completely agree with the other answers. A large party of 14 would be difficult, and impossible without an advance reservation.
