Kate’s serves quirky, amazing diner food that’s hard to find in San Francisco - seriously, we have no idea why they named their dishes things like the Flanched Flarney Garney or the French Toast Orgy, but we do know it all translates to “damn good breakfast.” The Flanched Flarney Garney is a breakfast sandwich served with a side of home fries and delicious homemade sausage patties. It’s deceptively simple despite the wacky name. The Mindy’s Hash Browns - a huge serving of hash browns wrapped around scrambled eggs, bacon, and cheese - is large enough to compromise the suspension in your car. And their cornmeal buttermilk pancakes are impossibly fluffy without losing their cornmeal texture.
