Judy's Café has been operating continuously for the past 27 years. A team effort between mother Judy and son Charles Bain, the result was a bustling and popular café with appropriately home-style cooking. The menu features numerous edibles made from scratch daily. Indulge in a sweet breakfast option such as the cream-cheese-stuffed french toast ($10.95), crowned with bananas and strawberries (when in season), or keep it savory with a Nordic omelette ($13.95) full of smoked salmon, cream cheese, and onion, served with your choice of pumpkin loaf, blueberry muffin, English muffin, or nine-grain toast. At high noon, lunchers may enjoy soft tacos ($9.50) with ground beef and traditional trimmings, or a Cajun chicken sandwich ($11) on Dutch crunch bread, garnished with a side of fresh fruit.


Judy's Café was reviewed by SF Weekly magazine and has received notable media coverage in recent years. More than 180 Yelpers, Citysearchers, and nine TripAdvisors give 3.5 stars. Seventy-two percent of Urbanspooners like Judy's Café:

  • A rare example of the disappearing homey little cafe, serving breakfast and lunch only, with surprisingly low prices for high-quality fare. – SF Weekly
  • One of my favs when I'm in San Francisco! I love the strawberry and banana French toast. There's Always a wait. It's Always crowded. And Cash only. Despite all those things, it's well worth it. – Chen D., Yelp
  • It can be a bit of a wait on the weekends, but I have found it is always worth it. The food is consistantly [sic] good and the staff is friendly. – annfensel, Citysearch

Judy's Cafe

Beneath the yellow tablecloths that brighten Judy’s Café, tables groan under the weight of homestyle breakfast, brunch, and lunch dishes loaded with organic ingredients. The menu of recipes devised by owner Charles Bain’s mother has satisfied the stomachs of San Franciscans, tourists, and celebrities who gaze down from photographs and cryogenic capsules. Breakfast poses a choice of overstuffed three-egg omelets and cut-to-order fruit, while lunch presents appetites with sandwiches of Dutch Crunch bread and nine-grain wheat toast enclosing Cajun, Italian, and American cargo. House-made salsa graces the contents of Mexican wraps before heading off to make an appearance at a high-profile fiesta.
