Description: Bread and Cocoa is a downtown San Francisco coffee shop specializing in delicious and nutritious coffee, meals, and snacks. Located in the Union Square-Financial District, it offers a healthy assortment of breakfast and lunch options filled with rich, organic ingredients for a guilt-free alternative for a sit down or meal on-the-go. Bread and Cocoa is an inviting oasis in the midst of the bustling bay-city with gluten-free, vegetarian, and a variety of other healthy food options. Our coffee is locally roasted and brewed to perfection. When paired with one of our artisan breakfast sandwiches made with home-baked bread and all-natural ingredients, it provides the extra pep in your step needed to get through the day in top form! Try our croissants, bagels, and frittata or one of our delectable a la carte menu options of fruit, oatmeal, granola and yogurt are a local hit, including our signature "Bread and Cocoa" multi-grain or baguette bread with a steaming cup of hot cocoa on the side (perfect for dipping!) Our lunch menu offers a fantastic variety of soups, salads, and sandwiches (including our toasted paninis) filled with fresh ingredients and in-house roasted meats. Our tomato soup paired with our Humboldt fog sandwich is a local favorite! Last (but certainly not least), Bread and Cocoa offers a selection of sweets and treats that we believe are just as healthy as they are delicious! We invite you to try one of our many homemade cookies, gluten-free pastries and tortes, and house-made chocolate ganache for a little guiltless indulgence. Whether on the go or enjoying a relaxing day across the bay, Bread and Cocoa is the perfect place to call your second home in the heart of downtown San Francisco. We hope to see you soon!

“Good quick breakfast”
Reviewed January 26, 2014

Bread and Cocoa isn't fancy, but it's got a fun atmosphere and really good breakfast sandwiches. We stayed at a hotel right around the corner that did not have a breakfast spot, so stopped in for breakfast a few mornings. Prices are reasonable. The sandwiches are BIG (we split one), but they also have fresh orange juice, can get a simple baguette and jam etc.

Service is quick (you order at the counter) so not the place to go if you're looking for a more restaurant-style meal.

“Big Breakfast”
Reviewed December 7, 2013

We ordered breakfast sandwiches and I couldn't finish mine. Big sandwiches, could have split it with my kid. But very good. Reasonable prices $6.
