  • This is a cute little behind the scenes area. A bit of a walk, but fun. Offers a couple of places to eat, not a great selection for a quick coffee and snack. We ended up at Starbucks.  more »
  • Nothing remarkable here. The trains are noisy and the place can be crowded. It's near the historic district and also the Regency Theater, plus a lot of restaurants and auction houses.  more »

  • My party came here for lunch prior to an afternoon of touring the Mission and had a great time. We were promptly seated, our server was attentive, and the atmosphere in the interior dining room was great with the trains coming and going. The food was delicious, with the cinnamon-citrus french toast and paradise chicken salad being standouts. We will definitely be back.
  • Edit: Changed from 4 stars to 3. This place used to be really awesome. Apparently about 2 months ago though, the place changed ownership. Things were ok, nothing really stood out. Don't get the best feeling from the new owner. He will spend lots of time at tables that give him/the restaurant praise and try to avoid those tables that have any complaints. Original Review: I've been going here for years. I really enjoy the food and the atmosphere. There are some areas of the restaurant where you get tucked away and can sometimes be forgotten about for periods of time.
