Nice atmosphere, friendly staff and great breakfast - perfect start to a day of sightseeing and shopping round The Castro and Haight. Scrambled eggs with chorizo was really tasty, served with black beans and sour cream but the Monte Castro sandwich was amazing (and huge).

You would be excused to pass In e street and not notice this place (the seating at La Taza is mostly upstairs, so it tends to look like an idle take away from the street level). I've had meals at La Taza a dozen times,...More

From the street you may think this is a tiny café, but its three stories tall. I recommend going up to the larger third floor dining room and sitting on the enclosed deck overlooking the 18th st. and a good bit of the Castro district....More

We had a long travel day the day before we ate at Cafe La Taza. The menu is expansive and the food was fantastic! Great location if you are staying in Nob Hill. It opens early which is great for those on east coast time.

This is an excellent place, we went twice (we were at San Francisco only 3 nights). The food is really good, choice of fish or meat or pasta, for 12 to 20$. The service was also perfect! Francis & Valérie

We were looking for a place to have a light lunch. We were very happy with our wraps. Ingredients were fresh and delicious. We liked it so much we went back for breakfast the next day. There are only a few small tables but we...More

The Castro
A flourishing commercial area that acts as San
Francisco's LGBT community center and cultural heart,
the Castro is a neighborhood welcome to everyone. As
one of the first predominantly LGBT neighborhoods in
the United States and currently its largest, it
remains one of the epicenters of activism in the
nation. Grand theaters and glitzy shops now compete
with bars and fashionable eateries for attention,
