Dottie's True Blue Cafe
Posted by anonymouns on 02/16/2010
I waited in line for an hour to eat at Dotties my first time. The whole time I was being reassured by a woman in front of me that it was well worth the wait. She was right. This was the best breakfast I have ever had. I had a remarkable warm cozy feeling the whole time I was there. The staff is unbelievably funny and nice and Kurt is efficient and personable. I went back and ordered take-out the next two days of my visit. I would recommend Dotties as a must experience when visiting San Francisco. And don't forget to thank the chef! He cooks all the food, totals all the bills, and answers the phones!

I always love coming here for breakfast, no matter the line. One of the things that really puts this place over the top for me is how quickly the wonderful food is served from kitchen to table. My pancakes arrived so hot, I actually had to wait to take my first bite. Food not being served at the correct temperature is my biggest pet peeve when it comes to restaurants. Dottie's knows how to keep me coming back!

The restaurant is small, but clean & cozy. The servers are down-to-earth friendly. Unlike what most people say, however, the food really isn't that great--I would call it carefully planned out, but taste average. I wouldn't wait in line to eat here again. Spending $33 for two people, on an average quality breakfast is a little too expensive. If you do plan to go, I would advise that you go early on a weekday morning to avoid the long line.

I am not by nature a patient person when it comes to eating and lines. We waited almost 2 hours on Saturday to get in and it was worth every minute. The food was amazing and the choices were so plentiful and varied, it was hard to decide. The service was terrific. We sat at the counter and I was amazed at the efficiency, calm demeanor, and frendliness of the chef/owner. This is an experience I would do over and over...no matter how long the line.

What an amazing breakfast! Totally worth the wait. Creative cuisine, fabulous service in a funky, relaxing atmosphere. A San Francisco Institution. A must.

I just LOVED everything about this place. After standing in line for 25 minutes I was halfway to the door, maybe 15 people still in front of me. The waitress came out and asked if there was anyone eating by themselves and I quickly raised my hand. I squeezed in on a stool at the end of counter and instantly loved the ambience of the place. Small and crowded yet people didn't seem to care, they were all happily chatting and eating. It felt so homey and warm and the workers were friendly. My breakfast was a frittata with tomatoes, feta cheese, avocado and bits of portuguese sausage and it was the best meal in SF I've ever tasted! The bread had a scone -like texture which the cook threw on a buttered grill. It came out nice and crispy and crunchy - awesome stuff! The meal also included pan-fried hashed potatoes that was seasoned perfectly. That with my cup of coffee was the perfect way to start my late morning. And it only took less than ten minutes for my order to get done. That sole cook really has a handle on everything. I'd show you all a picture but I can't load one up here. Anyway, I just have to say that any and every time I'm in SF I will have a meal at Dottie's. I LOVE this place that much.
