Great bakery + Reasonable priced meals = lots of visits

I don't often go back to the same place when I'm travelling but this was quite the exception. Had breakfast here every morning just so I could try all the delicious options. Service is fast despite a busy morning rush. The pastries and bread are fresh and soooo tasty. Highly recommend it!

Thought this would be a unique breakfast place within Union Square area. However, the food was generic and pastries were not freshly made. The coffee was stale and not flavorful. All around disappointed and not as unique as had thought.

Was wandering around the North Beach neighborhood looking for a place to eat when this place caught my eye. I had a mini baguette with salmon and creme fraiche, a salted caramel macaroon, and a lemonade. A very simple brunch, but some of the most fresh and delicious food I've had in a while. The salted caramel macaroon - holy... More

Loved this place! My husband and I shared a Monsier Croque sandwich. Delicious! We got croissants to eat for breakfast the next morning. Everything was so good and the employees were very friendly!

Wondering the streets looking for a place for breakfast and so happy we found this place. Service and staff were terrific. The Housemade Granola topped with fresh fruit was a meal in itself and fantastic!! Others had the french toast and egg & cheese sandwich and loved them. Lots of locals there which was also a good sign.

Wonderful Cafe in SF. Croissant was delicious, and the cappuccino was served in a bowl \0/. If you are around sf, don't miss it

A good place to stop by with a friend for a cup of coffee. The place looks a little tired. The staff is very friendly.

This place is amazing! I am so glad we stumbled onto them! The best part is ordering the Large Late... and having it come out in a bowl for the first time. I had the breakfast sandwich while I was there and the ham and cheese croissant was delicous. I am sad I had to leave them behind

What's not to like about a place that will serve your soy chai latte in a bowl as big as your face? As one of my good friends would say, "awesomesauce!" The canneles are the perfect amount of sweet - just enough to satisfy your sweet tooth without being overpoweringly sugary like many American baked goods. And for those of... More

Staying in Marina District

Neighborhood Profile
Marina District
Beautiful homes, beautiful people, and a beautiful backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge welcome visitors to the Marina. Originally the location for the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915 (whose remnants can be seen at the Palace of Fine Arts), much of the land was filled and flattened to accommodate a world’s fair. That ample space has given way to a jogger’s paradise at the northern edge of the city. With the picturesque bay setting as its backdrop, it’s no surprise that the area has hosted numerous movie productions. Daytime activities focus on café culture and boutique shopping, while the evenings turn this neighborhood into a party-going hotspot.
