If you're planning to have a picnic in Golden Gate you MUST stop by for some cheese, jam, pickled jalapenos, and DO NOT MISS the cured olives in honey, garlic, and ginger!

Beautiful, airy with friendly staff and excellent food. We enjoyed scrabbled eggs with salmon and roasted tomotoes, and delicious french toast with berries and marscapone, well worth a visit!
