“You say aioli-I say mayo”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2012

Recently lunched here because we didn't want to wait at Zazie...huge mistake. We ordered an egg-salad sandwich, tuna melt, and special melon and prosciutto salad. The egg-salad was so liquid y that it fell off of the dry (stale?) bread. The tuna melt was supper oily, aioli y, as well. The salad, the special of the day, used over thick cut prosciutto and the hardest, UNRIPE but thinly cut melon.
In addition, they added and charged for a side of salad no one ordered.
The coffee was delicious. The pastries looked good too. Just don't eat lunch.

“A Lovely Accidental Find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2012

During our last visit to San Francisco we accidentally found this wonderful Cafe as we walked a new neighborhood. Located at 2325 Pine Street, 2 blocks off Van Ness Ave. We stopped in to have a late lunch/snack before going to a Giant's game. There were so many choices, it was difficult to make a decision. My husband settled on a Croque Monsieur & I had a lovely lemon tart with a wonderful cup of coffee. Next time we will seek out the Cafe on purpose! You should try it too.
