Stopped in for a late breakfast after flight in from Cleveland this morning. Unassuming but food and service was great. Simple and fresh but so satisfying. Next time I will try the millionaire bacon.

We stopped here on a Sunday Morning at 8:45am. The line was out the door. We waited probably 45 minutes, and it was worth it! The food came out fast and was so delicious. The millionaire bacon is money - a little spicy but amazing....The hash browns were so good and they made the eggs we ordered perfect. We had a group of 4 and all got different things, and were very satisfied.More

Great breakfast spot near Hilton Union Square. Tiny with a handful of tables but very fast moving line even on Sunday morning. Definitely order the bacon!

Great experience, it’s a small (mainly breakfast/lunch) place. Service is fast and friendly and the food is of good quality. It will get busy fast, from 8 onwards there will be a cue for sure.

I was in a hurry and wasn’t disappointed. My omelette was excellent, and the service speedy and courteous

I was in SF for business and checked TripAdvisor to see where to go for breakfast. Taylor Street Coffee Shop seemed to be a good choice...and it is! Excellent breakfast! Various choices, fresh ingredients, efficient service and good coffee.

This is across the road from our hotel (Hilton Union Square) and it's almost like a cafe in Amsterdam with a narrow frontage that stretches back forever. Their signature thing is Millionaire's Bacon and it's well worth try: maple or molasses with a peppery fire...of background heat. Strangely addictive. The Eggs Benedict made with the MB was astonishingly good. None of the family had a bad word to say and I think we paid 3 breakfast visits here in 5 days. That says it all, really.More

This has to be the best breakfast I have had in the USA. Sure you have to queue for a while for a table but it’s totally worth it. I had the Swedish pancakes and added fruit. The pancakes were amazing and the fresh fruit...was so good. My husband had omelette and it looked amazing. We would definitely go back here.More

Our hotel breakfast was 20 bucks for a continental! Yikes! So we looked up restaurants near us. This, and a few others popped up. This one had the best reviews, so off we went. Tiny place, squished between stores. We almost missed it. When we...walked in, we thought, oh geeze, it's SO small. There were only 2 tables open, so we took one! Very small, but cute and cozy. Our server was super nice. She brought us coffee and water right away. Hubby got the regular eggs Benedict. I got the millionaires bacon Benedict. Both were delicious. The millionaires bacon is delicious. It packs a punch from the Cayenne pepper. But it's not over spicy. I like spicy, but I don't like hot. And it was good! It also has tomatoes and mushrooms. Different. I absolutely loved the tomato on it, and will make this a habit now. The hollandaise sauce was amazing. Great flavor. And the hash browns were perfect. crispy, and delicious. We also got an order of pancakes. They are thin. Like crepes. They were very good as well. Our server was constantly checking on people, and I felt nobody ever had to wait for anything. One server, and like 10 tables, and she was on it! Great food, and Great service! Don't miss this spot!More

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