Art's Cafe - Inner Sunset, SF - Quick Report

Dave MP | Oct 28, 201312:58 PM

I ate at Art's Cafe for the first time yesterday. It's a hole-in-the-wall diner, with about 12 seats, all at the counter. From my seat, I could watch the whole operation in action, since I was right in front of the griddle.

French toast was decent but nothing special, dusted with powdered sugar and cinnamon, and served w/ fake-maple syrup. Over-easy eggs were good, though a tad greasy. Toast was fine, served buttered, and with Smuckers Concord grape jelly. The real highlight was the hashbrown sandwich, which is almost like a crepe, but the "pancake" part is made of a thin sheet of hash browns. We had ours filled with sausage and onion, which had both been cooked on the griddle ahead of time, and then stuffed inside. There was also some melted cheese. This was served with eggs and it was really good, but pretty heavy and greasy.

Coffee is fine but nothing special, and they offered endless refills.

I was glad I finally tried this place, and next time I'd try to get a version of the hashbrown sandwich that includes some Korean ingredients (maybe even kimchee?). This wasn't exactly on the menu, but seems like it might be possible.
