It's starting to get smokey around here.
Because of three people, my dining companion and I spend five hours trekking to Swan Oyster Depot in Nob Hill. Call me crazy, but just don't ever call me apathetic (pathetic is fine; just not apathetic). We found a parking space *way* up high (it is in the Nob Hill neighborhood), but only about three blocks away.

I have to say, I'm glad that the Dutch Eating Place was closed, otherwise, I wouldn't have tried this little gem. I ordered a plate of scrapple, 2 poached eggs and hash browns, that came with 2 hearty slices of homemade rye bread and homemade strawberry jam ($4.99 (I know, ridiculous!)) Mr. MV ordered 2 eggs over easy, corned beef hash (excellent) and cooked apples, which also came with 2 slices of rye ($6.99). The coffee was good, as was the service.
