simple yet delicious

Stopped in for a bagel sandwich and a cup of coffee. I kept asking my boyfriend, "Why is this so delicious?" I mean, it's just a toasted bagel with some cream cheese and sliced tomato. He said it's because the food was made with pride. That was it, the intangible. Simple, fresh ingredients put... read more

He said it's because the food was made with pride. That was it, the intangible. Simple, fresh ingredients put together with integrity.

Good grab and go bagel sandwiches at this place. Typical cafe vibe with an upstairs set if tables to study/read/whatever. I recommend it for out-of-towners as we were.

This is a nice neighbourhood cafe with a good selection of breakfast items, tasty sandwiches, salads, desserts and beverages at reasonable prices. Plenty of seating on ground level and mezzanine. Nice atmosphere and friendly staff. There is one computer station for those who can't make it through lunch without internet. Every other Sunday afternoon, a ukulele group plays in the... More

OakSide Cafe is a hip little property located on the corner of Oak and Broderick (one block west of Divisadero). Neither fussy nor pretentious, this clean and casually arty cafe plays host to groovy hipsters, day laborers, and middle aged travelers, among others. There are plenty of places in Lower Haight to break your fast, but some may also help... More

Neighborhood Profile
Haight-Ashbury
The area surrounding the intersection of Haight and Ashbury streets, “The Haight” still exudes vibes of the 1960s counterculture as a haven for vintage clothes, music, pop posters and body piercing shops. While the Summer of Love ended decades ago, Haight-Ashbury has turned into a melting pot of hippies, hipsters, and professionals. Walking through its streets can still feel like stepping back in time. A must-see neighborhood for most music fans, it’s easy to see why these streets attracted the likes of the Grateful Dead and Janis Joplin. You’ll likely be content in The Haight day or night, just be sure to wear some flowers in your hair.
