SF Weekly's Description

Knowledgeable hands took over the lease of the venerable St. Francis Fountain, in continuous operation from 1918 to 2002, and spiffed it up into a simulacrum of the corner soda fountain: all your favorites (breakfast all day, burgers, sandwiches, ice cream specialties), well made, popularly priced, and served to you at the counter or in snug wooden booths. Some dishes are straightforward classics (egg salad, BLT), and some have been slightly tweaked (pecans in the chicken salad). The place uses Mitchell's ice cream for its excellent shakes, malts, and sundaes.

Tips from foursquare

  • Willo O. on 05/18/09

    Best Huevos Rancheros in town!

  • Susan L. on 07/29/11

    The only acceptable greasy hangover food spot in the hood. Hold out as long as you can to avoid all the hipsters. Everything's good!

  • Brandon M. on 01/01/11

    Sit at the bar, the booth seats are uncomfortably short.

  • Joe H. on 05/03/09

    try the espresso milkshake!

  • The Bold Italic on 02/28/11

    Try the delicious gut-bomb called the "nebulous potato thing." Oh yeah, and add a milkshake.
