Rocked up Saturday night about 09:30pm for food. The lady serving couldn't have been more disinterested in serving us. One word answers and didn't take initiative and approach us for our order, we had to go find her. Secondly, they serve till 11:00pm yet had run out of pizza dough at 09:30pm so only two pizza could be ordered when... More

Atlas is a great local spot for coffee and breakfast or lunch. Cozy, neighborhood-y, nice outdoor space. The bagels are excellent - I had the smoked trout one, which was delicious! Their sandwiches are also very good. And they sell Anthony's cookies, which is a big plus!

Such a delightful breakfast we went back two days in a row. Spicy chai, delicious bagels with lots of options. Friendly staff who guided us very patiently through our choices. Comfortable and neighborhood-y.

Atlas Cafe in the Mission District serves the best coffee in the city and impressive pastries. It's close enough to walk to from The Castro and the surrounding neighborhoods, mostly a local spot, however staff is friendly to the few out-of-towners clever enough to learn about it. I found it to be a great place to grab coffee and a... More

Still a great neighbourhood cafe. Friendly, casual, many regular locals hang out here. As visitors from overseas, we are probably unusual clientele. We love Atlas: for coffee, for brunch, for anything. A favourite is their 'no cheese' pizza....tasty and full of good veggies.

My daughter and now son-in-law's favorite casual eatery in San Francisco. They had their wedding rehearsal dinner here. It turned into a large "everyone is invited" get-together. The casual food--pizzas, nibble-sized sandwiches and salads--was great. Our party took over the entire restaurant, and the staff were very friendly and attentive. Don't miss this place on your next visit to the... More

This is a bustling and pleasant cafe to eat breakfast or lunch or just a late afternoon snack. Although it's busy there is plenty of seating to eat either inside or on the back patio. The counter service is very efficient and the staff are friendly. I have had pizza and salads here and the servings are ample especially for... More

Neighborhood Profile
Mission District
From burritos to bicyclists, the Mission is the foundation for all things hip in the city. Cultural attractions, an independent arts community, sumptuous street murals and a high density of bars and cafes make this neighborhood a magnet for young people. While terrific inexpensive food is abundant, its top-of-the-line restaurants now compete with the city’s best for fashionable diners. Indulge as the locals do by heading to Mission Dolores Park, buy some ice cream, and savor one of the most diverse neighborhoods in the country.
