Because of the surly service, I give this restaurant a 2. It would have been a 4 otherwise.

It started with my sister and I walking in mid-afternoon, where there was only 1 other table with people, so we opted to sit at a 4 seater table.

Beignets are the best reason to have breakfast at Just for you. Do not expect a fancy brunch, but if you are willing to wait a little for a table on the weekend and love a hot beignet, this is the place for you. The prices are reasonable, if not cheap, compared to most of SF.

Pros: Beignets, easy parking, relaxed atmosphere

Cons: waits on weekends (usually only about 10-15 min)

Just for You is a hidden away restaurant that always has a line out the door. They have comfort food breakfast, like french toast, grits and potatoes. I always leave there incredibly full and a relatively small bill.

PROS: Great food for a low price
CONS:

My fiance and I love Just For You for breakfast/brunch. The owner's native Louisiana roots are what brought us there to begin with, as we are recent transplants here from New Orleans - the food has always been spectacular! When we found out that the weekday menu also had Po-Boys, we decided to try lunch there as well. Shame on them for calling this a Po-Boy. You may be able to fool Californians, but after 28 years in New Orleans, I know that shrimp po-boys should have more than 4 shrimp (for $9.95)!!! They did taste great, at least the bites that had more than just lettuce and french bread, but come on...We were very dissapointed in this "tease" of a real seafood Po-Boy. We'll stick to breakfast here!

I used to love this place, and some of the things on the menu were GREAT (cornmeal pancakes, for instance). When they first changed to their new local, the prices were still low and the food good. Oh, how things change. They should call the restaurant "Not For You Anymore". OK, the beignets are pretty great. But the last two times I've gone, the service has been surly and rushed, the food's been mediocre at best, and the prices are now as high as any other breakfast joint. It's just not worth it. Grits are runny, eggs over-easy are raw, pancakes thick, rubbery, tasteless. Wait staff too busy to take your order but then falling all over themselves to get you out to make room for more. Friends I took there wondered why I raved about it. Sadly, it's the end of an era.

I thought I'd died and gone to Breakfast Heaven. This is the place you'd hope to find on a trip deep in the Heartland but rarely do. Immediately order a plate of exquisite, spectacular beignets with coffee while perusing the menu. Then pick some of their fabulous homemade bread slices to go with whatever entree. I picked cinnamon raisin bread, which was as good as my Mama's, along with the delicious pork chop, eggs and grits. Whoever cannot appreciate this place should just stick to Denny's. Others be patient, it's well worth the wait. (Wish I was there now).

seriously. make your way out to dogpatch this sunday morning and order yourself a plate of freshly-baked beignets right when you sit down. then kick back and take your pick of anything on the menu. some of my favorites are the cajun catfish, huevos rancheros, and oh dear god the home made corned beef hash. where else can you have all that and gaze up at authentic bottom of the hill show posters??

Eat here and be happy. If you haven't had Just For You's cornmeal pancakes, you haven't lived. From crab cakes to huevos rancheros to french toast made from their own, homemade bread, this menu has something to please everyone. I almost forgot the burgers! Come for weekend brunch, weekday breakfast, and weekday lunch. If they were open for dinner, you could close up your own kitchen completely.

Read all the fellow reviews so I went to check it out. I must have missed something, because I found it to be nothing special. It was just a diner with basically regular brunch items. Its not hard to scramble eggs. Not worth waiting in line.

If you aren't able make it down to your favorite diner in Nawlins for breakfast this morning, try Just For You. It's the next best thing to eats in the nation's 2nd coolest City. Get your crab cakes, grits, anything and gravy, a variety of standards like Eggs Bennie, or SF originals like the Joe's Scramble hangover therapy. Add to that bread baked fresh in house, including corn bread, and you're happenin'. Like a homey diner in the Big Easy, the atmosphere is lively, unpretentious and fun. And yes, there is chicory in the coffee. No decaf - sorry.

i first came to 'just for you' on a freinds recomendation. only was no way prepared for the experience. it was a warm and welcomed surprise for once to eat at a place with old fashion character. something you don't see anymore in a city full of fancy uncomfortable restaraunts serving small towers of food instead of full plates of food. the menu included home baked breads, grits and crabcakes. defenately a small prize after finding it in it's neighborhood 'the dog patch'. it's not a four star sort of place... but which do you perfer? good food or pampering?

People that said this place was the best in the city are delusional! Service was dismal, waited for someone to take our orders, then waited another 25 minutes for our food, watching others come in, order take out and leave with their food. Asking for more water which was lukewarm, was like asking for the waiter to stand on her head. $9 for 2 eggs, 2 pancakes and two small sausages?? Scones that were essentially cornbread with apricots thrown in. Not at all worthy of being on the list for best in the city.

I love this restaurant. I highly recommend the chili con carne over scrambled eggs and cornbread. The coffee has a nice kick to it too.

Waited for over 25 minutes for sub-standard food.
Unattentive waitstaff. Pancakes that tasted like pancakes only by adding butter and syrup. Definitely not worth by 9 bucks or the wait!!!

this is the best breakfast i've had in the city. perfect eggs, plenty of choices, good service and fresh-baked bread. both my southern born and bred parents proclaimed the grits outstanding! buy a loaf of their bread to take home when you go, it freezes brilliantly.

With or without a hangover, I can't describe how good the combination of Huevos Ranchers w/Red Meat Sauch & a side of Grits is! Pure morning heaven...

I love the new location! Loved the old one, but this one is just as good, if not better! Now I can take my friends who are visiting from out of town! And we can get a table!!! Love the food and the service is, as always, totally great, no-messing-around!! Also, love the new menu items, the poached egg specials and for lunch, the Louisiana Po-Boys!

In Short
Decorated with neon rock-and-roll posters, this funky cafe attracts a local Dogpatch crowd of artists and young professionals, who often fill the eight tables and long counter. Breakfast is an especially popular meal,…
