First time there and they had a live German band playing on a Saturday night. The place was pretty dead though even with the live band. The next room was a laundromat so you can have a beer or coffee and wash your laundry at the same time.

On my last trip to San Francisco, we stayed in SOMA and invariably every morning I found myself at Brainwash Cafe. Quick, efficient, plenty of choices with salads, sandwiches and omletes , plenty of space to sit inside and outside with free Wifi. They have an ATM too and you can get your laundry done while you enjoy a good meal.

This is probably my favorite spot in San Francisco. I was looking for a place to do my laundry when traveling and stumbled upon this place by accident. I was expecting a plain old coin laundry but got so much more. I ended up enjoying a cold ice tea while waiting for my laundry to finish. I decided to go back for breakfast the next day. The food is good and tasty, nothing too fancy but still enough to choose from even if you're a vegetarian or just a bit picky. The staff is super-friendly and the atmosphere is superb.

I fell in love with this urban gem in SoMa. Where else could you find a Laundry Mat with a cafe, great atmosphere and live music in the evening?

Generous salad with breakfast, if preferred, rather than potatoes. Perfectly cooked eggs, wonderful thick toast, fresh coffee very strong. Great!
