Description: Bread and Cocoa is a downtown San Francisco coffee shop specializing in delicious and nutritious coffee, meals, and snacks. Located in the Union Square-Financial District, it offers a healthy assortment of breakfast and lunch options filled with rich, organic ingredients for a guilt-free alternative for a sit down or meal on-the-go. Bread and Cocoa is an inviting oasis in the midst of the bustling bay-city with gluten-free, vegetarian, and a variety of other healthy food options. Our coffee is locally roasted and brewed to perfection. When paired with one of our artisan breakfast sandwiches made with home-baked bread and all-natural ingredients, it provides the extra pep in your step needed to get through the day in top form! Try our croissants, bagels, and frittata or one of our delectable a la carte menu options of fruit, oatmeal, granola and yogurt are a local hit, including our signature "Bread and Cocoa" multi-grain or baguette bread with a steaming cup of hot cocoa on the side (perfect for dipping!) Our lunch menu offers a fantastic variety of soups, salads, and sandwiches (including our toasted paninis) filled with fresh ingredients and in-house roasted meats. Our tomato soup paired with our Humboldt fog sandwich is a local favorite! Last (but certainly not least), Bread and Cocoa offers a selection of sweets and treats that we believe are just as healthy as they are delicious! We invite you to try one of our many homemade cookies, gluten-free pastries and tortes, and house-made chocolate ganache for a little guiltless indulgence. Whether on the go or enjoying a relaxing day across the bay, Bread and Cocoa is the perfect place to call your second home in the heart of downtown San Francisco. We hope to see you soon!

“Great Coffee and Quick Breakfast!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

we ate breakfast here each morning of our 3 day san francisco trip. The latte's, hot chocolates and coffee drinks are excellent. They have a very good barista! Muffins and croissants are fresh and my children loved the oatmeal and toast in the morning. Great inexpensive place to have breakfast in the heart of San Francsico.

“Nice and quick if you are staying nearby!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

We dropped in one morning during our vacation to just pick up something quickly so we could keep walking and the pasteries were good. Nothing unbelievable but good and not super expensive which is good. We only tried breakfast but their sandwiches for lunch sound good!

“Ok but not the best”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

We visited Bread and Cocoa on the last day of our trip because it was so close to our hotel. It was okay, but it wasn't my favorite bakery. Maybe we just didn't order the right item.

“Great coffee and something to go with it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

Had breakfast at Bread and Cocoa on several occasions. Each time, it was delicious. Menu is not huge, mostly muffins, croissants, etc. They have egg sandwiches that are great. Try them on the foccacia, it's well worth it. Coffee is good, as was some specialty coffees and teas.

“Yummy sandwiches”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

A friendly waitress helped us out with how to tip in the USA since it was our first day. I had a beautiful Humbert Fog (?) cheese roll and my husband had a turkey roll. The next day we came back for more Humbert Fog rolls (once each this time). Easy and right next door to Galleria Park hotel.
