San Francisco has never really been a late-night town, and all-night restaurants are in outrageously short supply. This two-level diner with formica, red swivel chairs, and plenty of carnival glass has been in a league of its own ever since the almost-as-gay Sparky’s vanished from Church Street years ago. Newly bedazzled with plastic partitions to keep diners safe and comfy in relatively close quarters, Orphan Andy’s awaits the city’s full reopening. Sometimes, you have one drink too many and you need an omelet at 1:30am - and it may be quite lively even at that hour. Nighthawks this isn’t.
