“A great urban experience”
Reviewed December 5, 2012

Good coffee and tasty food. Sandwiches, salads, burgers, breakfast, etc. You can do your laundry while you dine, if you wish. Very nice vibe. Definitely worth a stop! Looks like they have entertainment sometimes too.

“Funky neighborhood cafe with a laundry mat attached!”
Reviewed October 19, 2012 via mobile

We stayed in the Soma area for a bob Dylan concert. At first glance the neighborhood looks a little shady, but it was close to everywhere we wanted to go including union square! We discovered Folsom St one night and loved it! We found this cafe and decided to go for breakfast the next morning! Amazing breakfast! The staff was extra friendly and the atmosphere was great!

“Super chill and affordable good food”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

I'd say that my review says it all. This place has been here forever and it's such a great place to come on the weekends for a no fuss meal. There may be a short line but it goes by quickly unlike most of the other brunch places around this city. It's got a lot of light, wifi, etc. Also, if you happen to need to do your laundry this is right there. Eat and wash... genius.

“Loved it”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

Cool spot to grab any meal. Very "Hipster" and staff was welcoming. Good food, beer on tap. They serve coffee in pint glasses! At night they have open mics. A great community hangout and it's a laundromat as well!

“Fab. Cholesterol without guilt”
Reviewed August 17, 2012

This is a real American restaurant. Yes, they do exist. It is a place to hide away from politically-correct people who tell you to eat healthily. The burger is juicy and delicious, a carnivorous pleasure that satisfies animal instincts. The fries are great too, and you'll leave so full you won't think about the clogged up arteries!

You can also do your laundry at this place if you want. But fine to simply hover into the cafe and order incredibly delicious food that may be bad for your body but good for your soul.
