“Ok, so there's good things and NOT SO Good things going on here!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2014

The food was really good and as a walk up restaurant it gets an A+ for food quality and cleanliness. Unfortunately for us, we were literally put upon by a crazy homeless person who tried to sit at the table with my husband, two kids and me, while we were sitting inside the restaurant. When I told him that we were all good and that to please move on he started screaming at me. He called me all kinds of bad names, tried to fight with my husband and terrified my two kids. The interesting part.... no one tried to help us, not the workers, other diners, nothing. It finally took one brave employee, after literally 5-10 minutes of this (a small woman even though there were men working there) who stood like 20 feet away from us with a broom telling the man that she had called security and the police (that never bothered to show up) to finally get him to leave. Talk about an experience!!!

“casual dinner spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2014

Great people behind the counter taking orders. Good food. I had the tomato soup and grilled cheese sand. Hit the spot on a cool evening. Casual atmosphere and nice to be able to sit and relax and people-watch as they walked by.

“Great place for breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2014

If you stay in San Francisco, be sure to visit La Boulange for at least one breakfast. Great coffee, and the almond croissant is to die for.

“All good stuff :)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2014

We found this great spot when visiting Golden Gate Park. It was one of the few restaurants on 9th that had sufficient seating. The cashier was very patient with us while we figured out what to order. All our meals were delicious and feeding our family of 6 was fairly reasonable. I also noticed a stack of games in case you want to hang around.

Special note: Their chai is great and served in a bowl; kind of funny but our kids loved it

“As good as advertised”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2014 via mobile

Great assortment of baked goods. I had the bread pudding (and tasted everyone else in the families treats)...and it was truly amazing. Will absolutely visit again when we go back to SF!
