Except for the addition of a children’s menu and some price increases due to the rampant inflation of the 1970s, the menu is pretty much the same as the breakfast portion of the 1978 San Francisco Zephyr menu. The latter menu noted that a children’s menu was available separately, so it appears the basic menu hadn’t changed, only the prices.
