A wonderful little restaurant with a delicious menu. We had breakfast - eggs, toast and fruit. We also had pancakes which were scrumptious. Definitely recommend. The wait staff are attentive and very gracious.

What a breakfast. Lovely quiet folk serving. Kitchen and cooks immaculate and love being able to view from dining area. Omelettes the best made with real eggs instead of the fake reconstituted so far from New York, Denver. From the juice to the chocolate drinks excellent and even regular coffee pretty good ( would have given 6 stars if they... More

We walked past this restaurant a couple of times before we actually found it. Its in the Marina district, but not in teh trendy area, like on Chestnut. Its small - seats maybe 20 people. The service is really excellent - they are fast, friendly and responsive. We had eggs, and although they were tasty, they weren't really hot. Next... More

Ok this is my second time here, I came here about a year and a half ago, and ordered -I think- the same thing. Last time the food tasted better. This time the scrambled egg was just average, the hash browns below average, but I really liked the french toasts. I am sure it is still a good place, but... More

This was our first time to this small restaurant with an intimate atmosphere. It is only open 7am to 3pm, 7 days a week. It was very crowded but worth the wait. Everything was fresh and well presented. I had the Eggs Benedict with corned beef. It was real corned beef nothing out of a can - delicious! My wife... More

We were visiting from Massachusetts and go out to breakfast all the time locally, so we were pleasantly surprised to find Home Plate. Walked in and the staff was very welcoming. We had two of us and were waiting for a third (which ended up taking 20 minutes), but the staff was very accommodating and let us place our orders... More

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.

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.
