Restaurant Review: Hollywood Cafe, San Francisco

San Francisco (Alaska Pre Cruise) . 2012 . September 13


This post is part of our Alaska Pre and Post Cruise Report and follow-up of our popular Alaska cruise series. Do check out our Alaska Cruise story too if this is your first time here! :)

After our short coffee break at Blue Bottle Coffee, it was time to make our way for our lunch at Hollywood Cafe. We have done our research on restaurants on Tripadvisor prior to our trip and we chose Hollywood Cafe for lunch as it was highly recommended and was a relative cheap option. As of 13 June 2013 as we write this post, it is still ranked #2 out of of 3,866 restaurants in San Francisco. So do give it a try the next time you visit San Francisco!

After a long walk on the Embarcadero, we were finally in the cozy cafe. There wasn't a big crowd in the cafe and we were glad to grab a table indoors.


Walls inside the cafe were lined up with portraits of current and ex Hollywood stars.




Breakfast + Lunch Menu


Even some of the breakfast special sets are named after Hollywood stars. How about having Marilyn Monroe or Audrey Hepburn for the day? All Breakfast sets come with a complimentary coffee or tea besides their famous Fresh Fruits.


 You can opt for Ala Carte options too if you are not so hungry.



You can check out the full breakfast menu on their website here.

Lunch menu is also available, which includes all time favourites such as sandwiches, cheese steak and charbroiled burgers. There are also soups and salads too for those who do not fancy a heavy meal. :) 


Full Lunch menu available here on their website.

Side Dishes and Beverages Menu. There are even cocktails and beer for selections. Full menu available here on website.


We ordered a James Dean Set (USD $11) and a Homemade Clam Chowder Soup (USD $6) to share.


Crispy Bacon. Eating this reminds us of the fantastic bacon we had at Peter Luger Steakhouse in New York.


Overflowing Fresh Fruit Bowl. It was pleasantly presented and certainly appetizing.

The set comes with toast which goes well with the butter.



The soup. Comes with complimentary Toast.

Jams are available for spreading on the toast if you wish.

The portion was huge. Lucky that we only ordered 1 set to share. We still have some left over food after our meal.

 The Bill comes up to be USD $18.45 after tax.


Verdict: Overall, we would certainly recommend that you pay Hollywood Cafe a visit if you are at San Francisco. The fresh fruit bowl is certainly the highlight and must-try. The portions offered are huge and you can certainly share a set for two persons.
 

How to get to the Cafe


We took a long walk from the Ferry Building along the Embarcadero. Believe us, it was a long walk! You might want to take the Muni Metro F Line and get off at the (Jones Street & Beach Street) stop or the next stop at (Mason & Beach Street) if you are short of time. You can then make your way to Taylor Street and start walking along it. Look out for the Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites San Francisco Fisherman's Wharf as the Cafe is just right next to it.
MUNI Metro - F Line


We have done up a map below to help guide our readers to the cafe.

F Train Stop 1 is Jones Street & Beach Street Stop  F Train Stop 2 refers to the next stop at (Mason & Beach Street). You can stop at either stop and make your way along Taylor Street to the Cafe. The Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites San Francisco Fisherman's Wharf is just right behind the cafe.
