Roxanne Cafe was such a delight. Unlike so many places in San Francisco it was quiet, clean, and not far from Union Square. The food was very good and we so enjoyed watching the cable cars pass and actually hearing each other talk. Truly that...More

You can go for expensive, overpriced hotel dining on Nob Hill, or go to Roxanne's Cafe for a great breakfast or lunch. Portions are large and tasty.

Great diner, small in size which is nice because it doesn’t have the big commercial factory type feel. Quick turnaround, good service. I had the pancake sandwich- two pancakes/eggs and bacon.

It's not fancy, but you'll get good food and decent service. Great for brunch. I liked the eclectic feel of the place and it's easy to reach from the Union Square area.

Breakfast is very busy in this long established restaurant. Food is good and reasonably priced. Service on the last visit not quite up to par, had to grab on table ware, and being seated in the corner did not help.

Union Square
Originally home to rallies supporting the Union Army
in the Civil War, this grand square has become the
city's premier shopping and entertainment district
containing the largest number of upscale department
stores, chic boutiques, art galleries and theatres in
the city. It's a large open area where tourists and
locals gather, watch cable cars and crowds go by,
enjoy a snack, or plan their day of shopping and
