Galette 88 is in an out of the way alley off the Financial District, and the interior is a very modern loft feel, with beverages served in mason jars, brick walls, concrete floors, high ceilings and trendy artwork. The crepes are delicious too! They have a great selection of sweet and savory versions and the flavor combinations are expertly melded.... More

Buckwheat galette- amazing. They are closed on the weekends, so try to get there! Worth it. Casual, friendly atmosphere- pay at counter, food brought out to table.

I walked past this place about a million times before I realized it was even there. It's a little cafe tucked down an alley that offers a great alternative to the usual financial district fare. I had a veggie crepe and a dessert crepe (because how can you not?!) and the were both delicious. It does fill up quickly, so... More

Visited SF to have lunch with my daughter today. This restaurant is just around the corner from her place of employment - actually on an alley. Modern, clean, bustling - and a busy lunchtime hour with locals enjoying a great lunch. Therefore, the atmosphere at noontime on a Friday was noisy, but very typical SF. We ordered two items: a...

Great lunch spot - healthy buckwheat crepes filled with delicious ingredients and/or beautifully crafted salads. We went with a friend who works nearby and eats there often, and I became an instant fan. I'll add Galette 88 to my "must-visit" restaurants every time I'm in San Francisco!

Another one of my favorite lunch places in SF. Where can you go and get all you can eat bread, a salad, and great Italian dish for less than $10? This place is awesome. Unfortunately they are only open Mondays-Fridays.

This hidden hole-in-the wall is casual with very good Italian food without the usual San Franciscan attitude and distain. The owner is Italian. You order at the counter and a few minutes later hot pasta dishes arrive at the table with a bowl of soup or some fresh salad. The service is very fast and attentive. They are super kid... More
