Its a tiny place with not enough seating. I had to sit outside a few times. The menu is small but well edited, and the coffee is great. I had the house made yogurt with granola, I highly recommend it.

The staff is quiet and efficient. I'm from New England and now live in NYC so I don't expect the staff to chat up a storm with me.

For a breakfast place the cost is a little high, but the food and coffee is good quality, not greasy spoon diner. It has a Brooklyn vibe.

Clearly the people who give this tiny hole in a wall food service location a positive rating have been starved for a high quality dining experience. In fact, I refuse classify it as a restaurant. Generally, even if you go to a McDonalds restaurant you pay for 1) food 2) a clean dining area 3) some semblance of customer delight or at a bare bones minimum courteous service and 4) value for the level of quality of the food. This place lacked all of the above. The food was ok, I acknowledge that. However, once you suffer through the sheer rudeness of the staff coupled with the experience of dining at one of two tiny, dirty tables on the street where homeless vagrants accost you while you masticate your overly priced biscuit, you too will wish you ate at McDonalds. Oh! Did I say biscuit? I'm so sorry. Scone was the proper descriptor according to the cashier, who corrects the unknowing victim, or should I say customer, who makes the same apparantly egregious error I made. I must admit, we Neanderthal Chicagoans who lack all opportunities for culinary gastronomic experiences may very well have set a higher bar for service when we dish out $32 for a couple of coffees (one served in a paper cup the other in a coffee cup) and two biscuits. (note, that's sarcasm related to Chicago food opportunities) . At least at McDonalds, they will even sell you a plain biscuit! Here, we had to be told that that's not how they sell their biscuits. Save your $32 and your dignity and skip this overpriced San Francisco treat.

Delicious. Went back 2 days in a row. Loved the breakfast focacia with marscapone cheese and fruit ( called the daily bread). Coffee was delicious. We had the meatloaf one day and an egg biscuit the next. Food was tasty and fresh ...highly recommend

A tiny kitchen offers daily options - 2 or 3 breakfast options mean fast preparation and divine flavors from local sources. They even make their own almond milk. Yum.

The doorman of our hotel recommended this little gem of a cafe, after our 6 1/2 hour flight from NYC and are we glad he did! The coffee was exceptional as was the boiled egg on a buttery, flaky cheddar cheese biscuit with a generous smear of creme fraiche and a nice layer of arugula. But the highlight had to have been the moist, melt-in-your mouth strawberry yoghurt cake. We were licking the crumbs off the plate. We have been back oh, four times already! The strawberry focaccia toast served with a generous dollop of whipped cream, crunchy pistachios and fresh berries is sublime. Farm Table is quaint and a surprising find in the middle of the city, but still quintessentially 'San Francisco'. Do have a rest on their grassy little wooden terrace/benches outside - they're quite beautiful!
