We walked to Haight Ashbury district and found ourselves starving and standing right in front of the Pork Store Cafe. Pork chops with eggs and spinach for breakfast? Yup and it was delicious. Two thin chop perfectly browned, seasoned and tender and add to this tender home baked biscuits. Great service too! We will be back!

It is what it is - unfancy, great tasting food, nice portions, very friendly service. Cool place, I'd definitely go back. Nice Bloody Marys.

At some point every person who lives in San Francisco has eaten here. Their breakfasts are well prepared and huge.

Delicious food in this cozy environment. A blast in the past with all the vintage memorabilia accompanies steak, eegs, hashbrowns and other delicious food

We waited about ten minutes for a specific table (our choice), and right after we were seated a massive crowd queued up outside, so the place is popular. The food was very good -- biscuits made hot and fresh. I had a Scralifornia, but made some major modifications so that it didn't resemble the original. Wife had the Tasty Nest... More

Despite the name, vegan options exist :) There is a delicious vegan tofu scramble (so yeah, the grill may be shared but come on- just be thankful these lovely people promote the vegan option)! The biscuits and gravy have a vegetarian gravy, creamy with greens (pesto or spinach)? Friendly hopping diner / service with cool young capable and genuinely caring... More

If you need something to eat that will most likely carry you through til evening then look no further. I sat at the counter at about 9am and was served quickly. The other customers seem to mainly be locals and workmen. My coffee arrived quickly and was topped up before my food arrived. The food was the Pork Store Special... More

i usually love this place, however on my last trip there (October 2016), I was appalled by the unsanitary kitchen staff. There was raw chicken defrosting in a sink (which was overflowing) next to where they washed the dishes. They two line cooks would grab raw pork and then also grab raw vegetables with the same hands. Not once did... More

We stopped at the Pork Store Cafe while in the Haight-Ashbury district our last morning in SF. The breakfast was amazing & the best meal we had during our entire trip. Our server was perfect--never hovering but kept our coffee cups filled, very pleasant to talk with, and we left feeling like we made a friend. The food was delicious,... More

This was our best lunch in San Francisco. The portions are huge. The food is delicious and fresh. The turkey in my sandwich was fresh cut not turkey roll. The biscuits are amazing

Staying in Haight-Ashbury

Neighbourhood Profile
Haight-Ashbury
The area surrounding the intersection of Haight and Ashbury streets, “The Haight” still exudes vibes of the 1960s counterculture as a haven for vintage clothes, music, pop posters and body piercing shops. While the Summer of Love ended decades ago, Haight-Ashbury has turned into a melting pot of hippies, hipsters, and professionals. Walking through its streets can still feel like stepping back in time. A must-see neighbourhood for most music fans, it’s easy to see why these streets attracted the likes of the Grateful Dead and Janis Joplin. You’ll likely be content in The Haight day or night, just be sure to wear some flowers in your hair.
