Rate-A-Restaurant Update: Dottie's True Blue Cafe
We first wrote about San Francisco's Dottie's True Blue Cafe in 2007 (read our original Rate-A-Restaurant here).
Since then, we've visited Dottie's on every trip up to the Bay Area -- and we've rarely been disappointed. Dottie's is an unusual spot: Located in the sketchy Tenderloin district, the restaurant's elaborate breakfast dishes and baked goods draw the crowds every morning. So much that there is always a line out the door.
This time out, we waited an hour for a table -- not an easy feat with a 5 year-old and 8 month-old in tow. We pulled it off. And the food was great, as always. But worth the wait, especially with kids? Not sure. We may have to take a break from Dottie's next time.
A few pics:
What we ordered: Zucchini honey muffin; Sweet potato butterscotch bread; smoked whisky fennel sausage, mushroom and baby spinach scramble (with potatoes and corn bread); balsamic portobello mushroom, tomato, scallion, pesto and feta frittata.
