We are rarely in town for the weekend and Mother's day everything was pretty full so we came to this DUMP for brunch.

The waitron thought everything was a joke especially refilling coffee.

Eggs and toast how hard can it be to serve

I ordered a burger offline. I asked for a veggie patty but it came with meat. The manager refused to fix the mixup and refused to give me a new burger. He said that he would send me a veggie burger only if I paid for it!

Sparky's is deffently the hippster diner in the city. On the edge of the Castro, populated more by the mission crowd though. The food is not bad, the best thing is probably the fries though.

Pros: Some vegan choices, nice wait staff.

Cons: Deafness inducing music makes conversation impossible, reduced menu

ADDENDUM TO THE REVIEW BELOW: I went in again and had lunch when the problematic owner was gone, and with an old friend as the server. He said that she probably wouldn't be back to work the place -- it didn't suit her. I'm glad she

Cons: Terrible new owner

In 1995 I moved to SF from colorado. I am originally born in South Africa, and I traveled around the globe as a "restaurant worker". I was hired at Sparkys as a Night "line Cook" and soon "rose" to the rank of "Graveyard Manager". At that

The food is average for a diner in the bay area. The real standout is the poor customer service from the "manager" when we were dining there. Our incorrect order promped her to argue instead of correct the problem. That sets a poor

Good food at all hours and way better service than Baghdad Cafe---it's worth the extra ten minute walk. Omelettes and pancakes are standouts. Ambiance is ordinary but fairly comfy. Good in a pinch.

I like that Sparky's serves breakfast all day. Their food tastes "homemade" and not too greasy. Their malt shakes are great. Sparky's Diner is very casual and has a fun atmosphere.
