We just had breakfast and coffee. They have a variety of menu items to choose from. It was a few minutes walking distance from the Metro Hotel. It was served up quickly and tasted great. I highly recommend it.

Typical tourists, we were wandering aimlessly after leaving Alamo Square. We literally stumbled upon this place and were very glad we did. Great mid-afternoon sandwiches (after skipping lunch) - good-sized portions, excellent food, friendly service that leaves you alone once you get settled. If I...More

Food is great! I had the grind scramble and it was fantastic. There menu seems like the usual cafe fare, but with some great unique options like chicken sausage and more veggie selection. Cole brew coffee is also amazing.

My wife and I were exploring SF, and were very pleased to find this lovely cafe. For how busy it was the cooks were very efficient. You get in line and order like a fast food restaurant. Find a seat and wait for quality food!!!...More

The area surrounding the intersection of Haight and
Ashbury streets, “The Haight” still exudes vibes of
the 1960s counterculture as a haven for vintage
clothes, music, pop posters and body piercing shops.
While the Summer of Love ended decades ago,
Haight-Ashbury has turned into a melting pot of
hippies, hipsters, and professionals. Walking through
its streets can still feel like stepping back in time.

What is the parking situation? Also, we will be a group of 6 adults and 3 children and 1 infant. This would be on Sunday, Oct. 4th. Is it possible to make a reservation so we won't be waiting in line for a table? Thanks.

I saw street parking only. The place had tables big enough for your size group (maybe having to combine 1 large amd 1 small table). It is very casual - order at then counter & they bring to table, so it's fine for kids. I... More
