Just to preface, I did not go in and physically see the restaurant nor did I see where it was located streetwise, so this review will be solely based on delivery alone. I got the 2x2x2 (chose the pancakes & bacon), Belgian waffle, and carbonara. The pancakes were fluffy and warm- nothing spectacular but definitely a solid choice! The bacon smelled deliciously smoky and had a good applewood flavor (not sure if they use applewood smoked bacon), eggs were eggs- just okay (but how good can eggs actually be?) The waffle was large and slightly sweet with a light dusting of powdered sugar. Classic, breakfast staple that can't not be yummy. Lastly, I wasn't sure how good their pasta would be, since this seemed like more a brunch-breakfast place, but let me tell you that carbonara was GOOD. Spaghetti noodles with mushrooms, bacon, and garlic in a not-to-thick cream sauce. I tend to find most carbonara to be really greasy and my stomach just doesn't feel the best afterwards, BUT! this one was not overly greasy & had a good amount of creaminess that doesn't make you feel like a greaseball afterwards! 10/10 would recommend the carbonara if you're into that kinda thing. Overall a very solid choice with a bit of everything to satisfy any cravings you may have!

I am excited to eat here for the first time but my excitement is fade away, it was just typical restaurant i thought its same thing at crepevine, food is okay, expensive and but small portion to there breakfast menu. Not good customer service, the owner is not friendly, the way he speak to us is were not welcome there, he let us hurry to order even this is the first time we came there. Self-service there. First and last time I will go there.

There was a 20-30 minute wait when we went around 10am on a Monday. I am not sure if it was because of the holiday but the place was pretty packed. The line going in to place order was really slow but once you're done, it was easy to find a seat. They set it up as such I think because food is served fast. Coffee was served the first 2 minutes we were seated and all 6 of our orders arrived in less than 20 minutes. I enjoyed the Classic Eggs Benedict. The canadian ham was unexpectedly thick and salty. Good thing they didn't skimp on the hollandaise because it definitely needed a sour component. The oatmeal pancake was (intentionally?) burnt. It was soft on the inside but the outside was inedible. If you zoom in the photo, you could see that the underside is even darker like really black burnt overly toasted pancake. Oof, what a waste. The chocolate pancake was yummy according to the nephew. He really liked it and was able to finish it. Overall, I still loved the dining experience. Sometimes all you need is great company and a cool vibe spot to spend your mornings at.

Came to Cafe 382 for brunch and really enjoyed it! When we came, it was definitely busy hour and all the tables were filled. They don't take orders until a table is about to open up so if you're wondering why the line is so long, this is probably why but it moves decently fast. I would say our wait time was about 25 minutes from the middle of the entrance ramp. Now's not exactly the time to be picky about indoor/outdoor seating but I'll say that I was happy that even indoor tables despite "full reopening" was actually very well spaced from adjacent tables. Now let's talk about food - we ordered a little bit of this and that and it was all fantastic. Mom and dad split a Deep Sea Sandwich which is a solid salmon filet grilled on a toasty ciabiatta with capers, dill sauce, and basically all the right fixins. It comes with a side of fresh cut fries and a side salad. Definitely a full meal for 1. They both said it was really good. I had myself a more traditional 2 x 2 x 2 with french toast, bacon, and eggs easy over. This meal was delicious! The sweet and savory balanced each other nicely and it was very filling. My brother had the banana fosters french toast which was the french toast topped with cinnamon whipped butter and a generous amount of flambeed bananas. It's definitely decadent, but we all deserve it now and then. The hashbrowns were added as a savory side for "balance" and were done very nicely - crispy outside and just fluffy enough inside. For the table, we decided to share a short stack of 2 buttermilk pancakes. They do it right! It's so pillowy and fluffy! Love it! All in all, pricing is pretty fair. Dishes average about $13 with drinks tacking on an additional $3. The portions are solid though and the ambiance is also very nice. Thumbs up for sure!

Our food was delicious. We both had 2-2-2, except he had pancakes and I had the French toast with our eggs and bacon. The pancakes were warm and fluffy, the vanilla brioche French toast was full of flavor, the fresh squeezed orange juice was good. The service was on point. Great place to get good grub and meet up with loved ones or even business.

Pretty disappointed in quality and qauntity of food. Ordered 3 egg scramble which was way overcooked and bland. Wife got eggs benedict that was good but for the price, was expecting a little more like avocados... Not coming back UPDATE: Amoura's eggs Benedict is 13 bucks and the quality is way better than yours. So yeah, there are better places

3.75 decent breakfast spot but nothing really special. The orders were all ok, but not too memorable. The service was very efficient and friendly.

Came here on a Thursday afternoon. Was not packed. Carbonara was good, sauce was flavorful, pasta was al dente. Chicken was extra crispy and juicy inside, gravy was delicious, tasted full of fresh herbs and was thick but the waffle was a bit soggy. Great customer service. You tell them how many is in your party(everyone must be present to be seated), order your food at the counter, and have a seat!


Loved the Prawn Salad!! The lemon vinaigrette dressing was awesome?

Visited today..i ws looking forward to having homemade i ordered Biscuits and gravy, hashbrowns and 2 eggs over med. The HB and BG was so COLD when it was brought to my table. The "server" dropped the food and one came by to check on refills offered. And you also have to pre pay your meal and tip. I tip on service. Therefore i did not leave a tip. And i am glad i did not after my experience. 2 star only because i dont think a 1 is appropriate.

I like how you are called to enter when it's time to order. It maintains social distancing and the amount of people at the register. The staff was great and very attentive. Plus side is that dogs are allowed at the outdoor dining area. It was very easy to get a table for 3 adults, 2 kids, and a dog. I ordered the fish and chips. I loved the tartar sauce. You can tell it's made in house. The side salad comes with the meal. It all tasted great. Fish did not have that "fishy" taste and was breaded and fried perfectly.

This place was a fantastic spot for breakfast. My fiancé and I wanted a quick breakfast but not fast food. There was a line but average wait time I would say was 10-15 min. We ordered and sat down pretty quick, the service was excellent and so was the food. Would come back again whenever I visit south SF

Taking walks around the neighborhood is a new way of enjoying our summer weekends. We fully intended to go to a nearby donut shop, but it was closed and saw that Cafe 382 was open and popping. There is a HUGE sign that says Order Here and an arrow pointing to where you should line up. In fact, there are so many signs with directions. I saw a few people ignore the signs and then throw a hissy fit after they were told to follow directions. Don't be that person. Read the big a** signs and then follow the directions. Many props to the people serving tables, bussing tables, and taking customer orders for dealing with the foolishness from customers. The food was pretty solid. We asked for syrup to go with the waffle, but I guess it was intentional that the gravy was the sauce for the chicken & waffles. The chicken skin was super crunchy . The French toast was perfect. There were servers walking around making sure our coffee cups are always full.

Went here for lunch while doing a long bike ride. Great place to park bikes and eat food outdoor. Multiple good vegetarian options with and without eggs

I'm always kind of scared to try new places unless they're highly reviewed but Cafe 382 is actually pretty solid!! While their menu is very diverse, I would rate them a good 4/5 stars for individual plates. We got the Chicken & Waffles and Huevos Rancheros and they were good but maybe just a bit basic. It didn't excite me too much but if you're looking for a quick snack, this place will do the job.
