Visited Home Plate while on a recent road trip. Stayed in San Francisco for three nights, ate at Home Plate every morning. I went with my girlfriend twice, then with my family (five people) and never waited more than 10 minutes, despite the line up. The service was awesome. Coffee/water refills were quick, the staff didn't visit our table unnecessarily, and the food was fast. Because I love this place so much, the rest of the review is going to be in-depth, so for those who don't want to wade through it: the food was great each time, the service was great each time, and I would visit SF just to eat here. The first day I had the Two Egg breakfast (over medium) with sourdough toast and the potato pancakes. This meal ended up being my favourite of the three I had, and it's also the cheapest. With coffee it was roughly $10 which was sweet. The second day I had the Eggs Florentine. As a vegetarian (that eats eggs, obviously), eggs benedict is usually just eggs covered in hollandaise with nothing else. The Eggs Florentine came loaded with spinach, with potato pancakes on the side. The third, and final trip (for now), I ordered a full stack of the Banana pancakes. Full stack means four pancakes, roughly 6 inches in diameter. I also added sliced banana to the top because I love potassium. If you're super hungry, order pancakes. I ended up giving a couple to my brother because I couldn't finish them (which was not for lack of trying). The pancakes and the florentine are tied, but if I had to pick it would probably be pancakes. In conclusion, Home Plate is my favourite breakfast place, hands down. My review is a little overboard, I'll admit, but I really do suggest visiting this place. If you're not sure what to order, I'd go with the Two Egg breakfast because it's right at the top of the menu. Alternatively, order a couple sides of the potato-carrot pancakes - they are amazing.

Sometimes I eat here two days in a row... it's that good. Very large menu selection, fresh, homemade scones on the table and everything has been delicious.
