In business since 1938, it’s history is lengthy and interesting. In keeping with its earliest roots, it’s best known for its breakfast special: 18 Swedish silver-dollar-sized pancakes. Spencer enjoyed his with crispy bacon; the other option was sausage links.
There seemed to be lots of regulars sharing the counter stools with us. Many customers called our waitress (Carol) by name.
Old-timey music was playing, and the decor was straight out of WWII. The food wasn’t great. . .the coffee was bitter. . .we never need to go back. But all in all, definitely a San Francisco sort of experience.
