It was our first time in the SOMA location. Last time I went to Dotties it was still located in the Tenderloin. The dining room is huge and nicely decorated. Despite a rather long queue we could be seated in about 20 minutes. The service...More

In this place you can have the real American breakfast. Many choices and looks excellent. I've tried the pancakes and were amazing. Be aware that there's always a line outside since the demand is much beyond seats. Be patience and you won't regret the choice!

This is a fantastic restaurant, but it is in an area surrounded by sidewalk dwellers. If you Uber to and from the front door, you should be fine. The food is imaginative, bakery onsite, amazing... what a great place for brunch! Portions are generous and...More

The food is amazing! No wonder why the waiting line is so long! Everything is made from scratch, even the jelly. The portions are very big! And the best thing is that you can drink unlimited coffee!!!!!!!

Great breakfast choices; food yummy. Omelette size is VERY generous. One could be easily shared. Wait staff is pleasant and attentive. Decided to try the Red Velvet cupcake. It looked so tempting. A bit disappointing as it was too dry. Will definitely return for breakfast.

South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated
vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs
and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to
find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter
for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able
to do more than just business - museums, top quality
restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call
this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized

I would assume about 7a.m. If that's your goal. The area is not the greatest there are a fair amount of homeless hanging around in the area. I felt more comfortable being in a bit of a crowd and not being the only one... More
