Mannie's Restaurant...At the Nob Hill Gate


NOB HILL--Probably the most overlooked restaurant in the Nob Hill area is Mannie's on Central and Girard. MaryAnn and I eat there often. It has decent food at good prices (dinner costs $5.95) and a very good cup of coffee. This is a MUST for MaryAnn. Last time we were there we ran into Elizabeth and Sam Roll. Elizabeth is a poet and author. Nob Hill Icon Sam Roll is a forensic phychiatrist whose office is only 100 yards from the Flying Star.

I'm telling you Mannie's coffee is better than Flying Star coffee. Mannie's, however, does not have Wi-Fi. It ought to. But in any case this is a nice place to relax, eat, drink some good coffee, and unwind from that hectic life of a Nob Hill boulevardier.

Had breakfast there a while back. Very good. It's easy to overlook Mannie's because its exterior decor is so, uhh... how do you say it? Shoddy? Anyway, yeah, thanks for reminding me that it IS good food.

I keep hearing that it's a good place to go, and so keep intending to go. It's not quite as much of a hike as the flying star, so maybe this weekend...

I'm eating some great Blueberry pancakes now at Mannies and using the free Wifi.

Good prices and quick service.

Frontier had a line of about 30 people and I hate lines.
