This place has consistently great food, friendly service, and a comfortable and homey atmosphere. Everything is delicious and satisfying, and they have a great brunch and lunch menu: eggs, waffles, pancakes, burgers, sandwiches ... they have a wide selection. The French Toast is one of the best I've ever had, and their turkey burgers and milkshakes are also great. The Grill is always busy and bustling, and at peak times there is usually a wait. The West Portal neighborhood is cute, and you can find parking pretty easily on side streets.
Pros: consistently great food, service, menu
Cons: not open for dinner
