A fabulous place for all meals. We went last year and all of our breakfast selections were wonderful. I had the world famous Swedish pancakes with lingonberries and it is so worth it. You will think IHOP has the poor man’s version. Everyone loved their...More

I've been there for dinner (and for breakfast many years ago). The place is nice and looks always the same. We have been served by a nice man. Menu with typical dishes. Average prices. The plase is very close to Union Square.

As we went a friday night without reservation, we had to wait in line to get seated. My fault... We ate entrecote and a burger, perfectly cooked. Great IPA from tap to drink. Pricey winelist. Will eat there again next time in Frisco. Highly recommended!

We were on our way to eat breakfast and came across this gem. The outside and the interior with all its antiques adds to the nostalgic atmosphere. The waiter was great, the food was delicious, and the ambiance was perfect. Skip the nasty Denny's and...More

Retro ambience, not too loud, loved the pancakes. You might have to wait during peak times. My friend had the regular pancakes and cleaned her plate.
