At their new location on McAllister ST at the Civic Center I was sitting eating my croissant and a blind man entered. He had been horribly burned and disfigured. His head was all frightfully burned, no , ears, no eyes, no lips. The cashier served...More

On Sunday morning we took our daughter's advice and went to Arsicault for a late breakfast. Great idea! I appreciate a place that doesn't have an extensive menu but rather focuses on doing a few things well, and that seems to be their approach. Given...More

Friends took me yesterday on my arrival to SF to this place at 7am they are already open. And usually it’s not easy to find real French croissants 🥐 so I wasn’t so sure. But once I tried the ham and cheese and the chocolate,...More

The chocolate almond croissant is a revelation, worth traveling the world for (even worth $5.75); the chocolate croissant is quite good. The chocolate chip cookie is too sweet (even for someone who drinks Hershey's syrup out of the can)! I'd increase the $$ rating at...More
