The taste of Benelux in the heart of the mission. Belgian frites with over 22 dipping sauces, 6 types of steamed mussels, amazing crepes, daring salads and succulent burgers, Frjtz is an amazing oasis of gastronomical comfort, great music, soothing art and an ambiance that will make you a disciple for years to come. A favorite place to bring your date, parents, children and your gay uncle. Oh yeah and we have a nice selection of Belgian beers in addition to delicious wine.

Nice European Style Place

Pretty cool place, bit weird furniture and decorations, but really good food. The coffee is more than ok, really liked it. We had one of he crepes and a selection from the breakfast menu. Great taste, nice presentation, maybe a bit expensive, but definitely worth a visit.

1) Wurst and green peppercorn sauce over mashed potatoes: OMG that sauce and potatoes just awesome tasty! I've had that sauce before, one bite and I know its my old friend back to visit. But then later the runs dammit. 2) Steak and herbed butter: meh, how did they manage to make this pretty boring? Not nearly worth it for... More

I tried the Miro crepe (prosuitto, tomato and tapenade) last night. I've never experienced a crepe with such a pungent flavor. To me, it was not worth the cost for such an unpleasant tasting crepe. Usually, I love crepes (such as at the now closed Ti Couz Restaurant). I wonder whether Miro would want this to be his namesake dish.... More

Nice relaxed place to go for breakfast or lunch. Cool decor friendly staff. They put the Real Madrid game on for us which was great. Would come back.

Having had frites a number of times in Belgium and Netherlands, the two of us came to Frjtz with high hopes of recreating those excellent snack experiences. Coincidentally, on the day we visited, the msn.com main page had a link to the "30 best French Fries" in the country and Frjtz was listed. Oh my. Our expectation level was heightened... More

Food overpriced and service disorganized, spotty, inattentive. They left tables on both sides of me dirty for my entire meal, not concerned about it.

There are many other restaurants in Mission where cost-benefit relation should be more to the customer's advantage. Food was not disappointing, but nothing really special either. But portions were small for US standards and price rather high for the Mission area. Maybe we caught a bad night but service was also extremely slow and the (1) restroom was untidy. On... More

I read the many positive reviews before I visited, so maybe my expectations were too high. Some items were indeed nice, but some were not (and probably not prepared freshly for us). We went there with a Groupon deal at the end of November. We visited on a Friday evening around 9 pm and were the only guests (which was... More

My brother and I were wandering around Valencia looking to have a last breakfast before I left and ended up here. I had to go for it and order the "Steak and Frjtz". I loved the eclectic decor of the place, and the service was excellent. Cannot wait to come back and try the GF savory crepes. Sigh...so good.

Staying in Mission District

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.
