“Casual taste sensation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2013

On our visit to San Francisco we came across this delightful deli. The food is absolutely amazing, so good we visited a couple of times, and would go back for more if we weren't moving on. There is no table service which actually is fine. I would definitely recommend this place if you are looking for some amazing food and wine.

“Good food, but not for the price”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2013

My family and I were in San Francisco for a legal conference. We decided to try this place because it was close to our hotel. The food choices were all freshly prepared that day. However, the portions were small and very expensive for the size of the plates. Other restaurants in the area offer larger portions for the same prices. This is a $$ restaurant with $$$ pricing because you must order some extra sides in order to eat enough to be full.

“Quality and Healthy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2013 via mobile

My wife and I both had the chicken salad with carrot, pickled cabbage amongst other ingredients. Chicken was moist and well flavoured. Fresh light and healthy with nice atmosphere sitting in maiden lane with a double bass player highly recommended.

“Great Place for Lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2013

This is our favorite place to eat lunch near Union Square in SF. They have wonderful salads, soups and sandwiches. They have a lovely outdoor eating area on Maiden Lane but indoor seating for inclement weather. You order and pick up your food and drinks at their counter. The food is all fresh and wonderfully prepared. My wife ate lunch here three days in a row because she liked it so much. I had the delicious seafood salad with shrimp, mussels, and calamari. My wife had green beans, roasted beets, and other beans. Another day we shared a fresh turkey sandwich with brie and cranberry sauce. A great place at a reasonable price. Be warned that they don't take credit cards so bring cash.

“A Pleasant Oasis”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2013

After touring around SF all morning we were tired and wanted to get out of the heat so were very happy to find Mocca. You order yourself inside, they have a great variety of salads and sandwiches to choose from and then bring the food out to the street patio. It was lovely and shady with live music, very pleasant. The food was very good, I had the pasta/ seafood salad and my husband the tri tip sandwich and we were both very happy. It was a perfect break from site seeing so if you find yourself in the Union Square area at lunch time, check this place out.
