OK For A Meetup; But Not For Dinner

This particular branch of the local chain is in the busy Hayes Valley neighborhood of the city. During early evenings it draws the Symphony, Ballet, and Opera crowd. Otherwise, it's populated by locals and city slummers. There's not much quality in the food and it's kind of pricey for what you get... read more

You order at the counter and someone brings your food to you. You get your own jam and other items as well as your own coffee. Good food friendly service. Nice inside. We had breakfast. It was good but they only give you one piece of toast. Not the end of the world but could of eaten a second slice.... More

My fiance and I stumbled by this cute restaurant while walking around, so glad we did! This place had a rustic cabin vibe and was the perfect breakfast spot. There were tables to sit at or a comfy lounge area. It was a great place to sit, chat, eat, and sip lattes for a while. Everything on the menu looked... More

A personal SF fav., for multiple reasons... locally owned & operated, locally sourced, dependable, reasonable, & excellent locations. I frequent the Grove (3 great SF locations) for casual business meetings and when out attending events. Most often going to Franklin/Hayes, it's a good spot when attending Civic Center events (Symphony, Opera, concerts, etc). It can be busy, and a bit... More

I had the chicken pot pie - thought I could use the calories since I was running a half marathon the next morning! Ha! It did not disappoint. Food was fantastic and service was extremely friendly and welcoming.

I went there for lunch with a friend who manted to take me around in the area. The inside room is very noisy, but eating on an outside table is OK to talk. You have to order inside, are given a number on top of a stand, which allows a waiter later to serve you your order at the table.... More
