My portobello sandwich tasted good, and the fries were incredible. However, I broke out in a cold sweat within a couple of hours and felt terrible for the next 24 hours. My husband is a physician, and he diagnosed it as food poisoning.

We had breakfast here and it was outstanding. It's not the cheapest place but the food quality and service are well worth it I had the New York breakfast with smoked salmon and my husband got the Spanish 3 egg omelet. they have fresh juices like carrot and cantaloupe. Definitely going for breakfast again tomorrow.

Stopped by for scones to go one morning. Six scones $9, the scones were two bite sized. So expensive certainly not worth it, not special tasting in any way. The menu for other food looked interesting and the prices were not bad. Better than the IHOP across the street. I would have tried the breakfast if I had more time,... More

The food at this diner is good enough, but I didn't think it was as good as the reviews previously suggested. Staff very friendly.

We went here for breakfast. All of the food we had was good and reasonably priced. Cooked to order and a few unusual dishes. Would eat here again.

Went here with my hubby for breakfast and had the Special Scramble, which was one of the best breakfast dishes I have ever had! My husband had the hash benedict, which he said was amazing as well. I had a bit of an issue getting the right dish, and the waiter was obviously perturbed that he misunderstood me, because he... More

Really good breakfast just a short walk from our hotel. The service was friendly & quick. I had the breakfast starter and it arrived fresh & hot with scrambled eggs, bacon, hash browns & rye toast. Hubby ordered waffle, eggs & bacon. Small place but definitely worth the wait!

Definitely worth a visit for breakfast. Attentive staff, quick service. Potato/carrot savoury pancakes are like a flat hash brown - really good. Free scone with your drink to start. Recommend!

Very small location. Had to sign up for a seat on a clipboard outside and wait to be seated outside as well. Food was just average for what I ordered. Service was slow. Cheese not in my eggs as asked. Brought wrong kind of toast. Wish I had ordered the pancakes after seeing someone else's order. Unfortunately did not have... More

At 1 pm on a Wednesday, Home Plate looked closed from the outside (dark) but a smiling waiter gestured us inside and it was nice and bright in there as we sat by the large windows. Everything is superfresh here--from the OJ to the free scones and jam. I had a hankering for huevos rancheros and they were excellent, too,... More

Staying in Marina District

Neighbourhood Profile
Marina District
Beautiful homes, beautiful people, and a beautiful backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge welcome visitors to the Marina. Originally the location for the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915 (whose remnants can be seen at the Palace of Fine Arts), much of the land was filled and flattened to accommodate a world’s fair. That ample space has given way to a jogger’s paradise at the northern edge of the city. With the picturesque bay setting as its backdrop, it’s no surprise that the area has hosted numerous movie productions. Daytime activities focus on café culture and boutique shopping, while the evenings turn this neighbourhood into a party-going hotspot.
