 LouLou's Griddle in the Middle - Kirby found this place on the interwebs so we just had to give it a go!

 All the food is cooked in front of you by these friendly gents.  They do BIG breakfasts...

 ... as you can tell by the size of Brianna's choc chip pancake (US5.95).  This is a No stack but you can get a 2 stack or 3 stack. My Lord!

 Finally in San Francisco, we had a hop on/hop off bus pass so took a tour...

 There are so many beautiful buildings in SF, very French.

 Coloured houses - no two seem the same.  All used to be made of timber until the great fire and earthquake of 1906.  In later times they have been built and rebuilt using a fibreglass type panelling.
