Dottie's True Blue Café

522 Jones St.
San Francisco , CA , United States
(415) 885-2767

The first thing diners notice about Dottie’s True Blue Café in the Tenderloin district is the line down the block - an indication that locals in the know feel it’s worth the wait. Although the establishment boasts classic diner features, include a blue-and-white color scheme, the food is anything but. Typical diner fare comes with an an upscale twist: banana chocolate chip French toast with toasted pecans, zucchini cakes, and whiskey fennel sausage. The wait can run anywhere from 45 minutes to two hours, but the service is speedy once you’re inside.
