I think this place is good for a take away when you pass by, pretty decent drinks and prices. However if you want to sit down I would say there are better places not far away.

Cool cafe in Castro district with good service given their overall busy-ness The granola and fruit looked healthy and yummy but didn't get it :( loved the avocado toast which is my new fav breakfast and the lemony hollandaise sauce on the Benedict Great vibe and feeling there Sat outside in the California sun

Been here for years, friendly staff, yummy meals, but expensive coffee. If you want to enjoy the neighborhood, grab a table outside on a warm day, order a Mimosa set up, and some breakfast and watch the world go by.

I first came here in 1987 and I was Bowled over by having a fruit salad garnish on my fried breakfast. This time I found it fairly average. The Mac and Cheese was nothing special. It's still a popular venue, great location and friendly staff, but I think the menu wasn't inspiring.

Friends and I came here for a late lunch and drinks. It's at the tip of Castro on Market Street, so both clientele and staff are pretty gay. Service is good and attentive, and food was tasty and not badly priced. I imagine it'd be fun in the early evening, too.

Myself, my Fiancée, her best friend and his husband visit on our last night in San Fransisco. The outside was nice. The seating is large and plentiful. As a larger person I really appreciate that. Our server greeted us and gave us menus. He was very friendly however he kept touching my friend. Nothing inappropriate or bad. However my friend... More
