Dottie's True Blue Cafe, San Francisco

The guidebook warned us that Dottie's is a perenially popular place, with queues frequently in place outside this tiny diner. We were there soon after 8am (I believe that it opens at 7.30 am) and we were the 4th party in the queue. However, the wait wasn't too long (about 10-15 mins). While we were waiting, it was fascinating to watch the kitchen and waiting staff in action, performing a synchronised ballet in this tiny space.

There's a great selection of cooked breakfasts, as well as patries. I chose the pulled pork, roasted onion and monteray jack scramble while himself had the lamb and fennel sausage, roast garlic and cream cheese omelette. (eggs seem to feature a lot at Dottie's). In addtion to al this, we also ordered a side of their famous chili corn bread with jalapeno jelly.

The corn bread came toasted, with chunks of chili embedded in it. The jalapeno jelly was sweet and spicy and melted into the wam bread. Mmm. Both egg dishes were amazing, although I wan't overly keen on the accompanying hash browns. A charming waitress kept our mugs topped up with coffee. Total bill came to about $35 and as we left, we could see the queue extending down the hill.
