We enjoyed a family breakfast here and really enjoyed the pastries. The chai arrived in HUGE cups or are they bowls? Enjoy.

So, we were hungry. After a huge bike ride and more to go, we needed a place to eat--but not to fill up. After walking 4 blocks up & down along Union St., we decided to try this coffee shop. I ordered a sandwich and a chai. When the tea arrived at our table, I laughed my head off! The... More

The food was really good and as a walk up restaurant it gets an A+ for food quality and cleanliness. Unfortunately for us, we were literally put upon by a crazy homeless person who tried to sit at the table with my husband, two kids and me, while we were sitting inside the restaurant. When I told him that we... More

Great people behind the counter taking orders. Good food. I had the tomato soup and grilled cheese sand. Hit the spot on a cool evening. Casual atmosphere and nice to be able to sit and relax and people-watch as they walked by.

If you stay in San Francisco, be sure to visit La Boulange for at least one breakfast. Great coffee, and the almond croissant is to die for.

We found this great spot when visiting Golden Gate Park. It was one of the few restaurants on 9th that had sufficient seating. The cashier was very patient with us while we figured out what to order. All our meals were delicious and feeding our family of 6 was fairly reasonable. I also noticed a stack of games in case... More

Great assortment of baked goods. I had the bread pudding (and tasted everyone else in the families treats)...and it was truly amazing. Will absolutely visit again when we go back to SF!

Awesome little cafe I stopped while looking for a cup of coffee. What a nice little place with some high quality stuff! I tried their frittata sandwich which was delicious.

We were some of the few who didn't have a lunch item at our table...but our late breakfast of pastries and wonderful coffee were perfect for us! Clearly, this is always a super busy spot...so the line out the door is always there. But we found the staff super hard working and the customer on our day were super patient.... More

A couple of our friends took us here when we came to visit SF. Its a charming place with a great concept. Everything from the coffee to the food to service and the ambiance was brilliant! They have seats facing the streets which is nice for having a nice coffee and people-watching if that's your thing. I would have stayed... More
