This is fine dining masquerading as a cafe, and doing quite a good job of it. will literally shout with joy over the aroma of Cafe Mason's. Prove me wrong.
Excellent Breakfast!!! Very creative with the options. If you like new ideas for breakfast (ie; croissant french toast, swedish pancake) would highly recommend. Omelets were also very good. My husband and I are just visiting San Francisco & ate here a couple of times & was excellent every time! Our waitress, Hana, was so cute and helpful with any questions we had. The food is made to order and we got our orders very quickly! My husband and I are very picky eaters and my husband even said the next time we visit San Francisco, this is going to be our breakfast spot every morning because you can order different things every time and not get bored. Would recommend for anyone, single, couples and families.
This place has amazing food with reasonable prices. I've eaten here countless times and have loved everything I've ordered. The gnocci al fungi is my favorite. The service is usually good. It's the best 24 hour (ever so slightly upscale) diner in the area. The music is almost always good.
We eat here almost every trip to SF for shopping. The food is consistently good. The service are friendly and professional..
I love that this place is only a couple steps away from Hotel Nikko! My girlfriend and I came here one late night for some grub to take back to our hotel room. We were directed to the bar by the hostess where we were quickly greeted by a server. Immediately after ordering, we were given waters while we waited for our food.
Here's what I think after having hanged out in downtown for years: very clean, neat at work, responsible morning/lunch cooks. They really DO care that you like their dish! breakfast is the best Overall, I'd go here for breakfast all the time if I lived in the area.
Food is great, I like the atmosphere more than anything...It is a great place on the way to work to come in be welcomed and enjoy the morning.. Highly recomend the place
My husband and I ate breakfast there our first morning in San Francisco. We chose it because it was convenient to our hotel. We returned every morning during our trip because it was some of the best food we have ever eaten. Everything we had was a hit. The food was so fresh and wonderful. It was like going home to Mom's house, but way better! We are planning a return trip to San Francisco and I promise that Cafe Mason will be on the itinerary.
Cafe Mason has a great breakfast selection PLUS they squeeze oranges to make fresh orange juice right there behind the counter. Service is great and the price is acceptable for San Francisco. They do offer lunch and dinner, but I have not tried them for these meals.
Great service and food. Comfy atmosphere. Right near Union Square, so is easy to get to. Have a great selection of Mexican entrees
Food is good for the price, which is very reasonable. Enjoyed the atmosphere--French, but more like a bistro. Went three times-once for breakfast (very good) and twice for dinner. Dinner menu is fairly extensive.
Had the Santa Fe omelette. It was great! The service was prompt and courteous.
I had an amazing experience at Cafe Mason. I had been having a rough day and came in feeling a bit under the weather. My server, Erin, was not only extremely attentive to my needs, but she suggested I order the swedish pancakes instead of the traditional. I kind of just shrugged 'whatever.' She didn't lose her smile, once. She continued to check on me and cracked a few jokes here and there. I came in not expecting such great service, and left with my own attitude adjustment, and an empty wallet (since I was sure to tip her well.) I will return soon and DEFINITELY hope I get Erin again, or that all the servers are that great.
Been here twice and always great service. I ordered the cheese omelet and their home fries and both were excellent. A lot of cheese if you like cheese! You can also order the homemade banana nut bread and they bring it to you nice and warm! Was very good. The coffee is very good. My sister ordered the eggs benedict and she even liked more than Sears Fine Dining! I would definitely recommend this place to locals and tourists. Prices are fair and you get seated quickly even if it's a full restaurant! Will be going back soon!
Stopped off for a quick breakfast before some Christmas shopping and had a superb meal. Shrimp frittata was outstanding as was the service. Fast and friendly. Would definitely recommend it to friends and family. Also kid friendly!
The restaurant was busy on Black Friday morning, but the staff seemed to be on their toes keeping up with the cliental. Two parties in front of us, but only about a five minute wait. The food was very good, as was the service. Average priced breakfast for downtown SF. Ham, eggs and country potatoes was very good as was the wife's pancakes and fruit.
The food here is great and the prices are very reasonable. I had a grilled fish dinner and my friend had 2 pork chops with fresh vegs - very good. It's a great place to go after shopping in Union Square or going to the theatre. They have large booths and a good variety of food on their menu. I have been here before for the crab and shrimp croissant sandwich and it is's fabulous!
Been there several times while staying in SFO, most of the time together with colleagues and it always was worth its money. You cannot go wrong having lunch there. I think I had nearly all burgers over the years and also most of the sandwiches and can recommend still all of them. Service is fast but can come to its limits when the restaurant is full, which can happen when there are large conferences being held at the nearby Hilton.
The positives here are the prices are pretty good for Union Square, and also they serve beer. Mmmmmmm. Beer.
