“Near-perfect pastries and excellent coffee in the Hayes Valley area”
Reviewed May 27, 2012

I was staying with friends up the hill from this delightful cafe and had the opportunity to stop each day for coffee and a pastry while on my way downtown each day. What a treat! The people working there were friendly, the coffee excellent and the pastries were world-class good. The space is warm and inviting. Overall a wonderful find!

I liked my experience at this quiet corner place. Their vegetarian options are nice. Baked goods looked amazing too :)

“A true European cafe”
Reviewed September 6, 2011

And I mean in the sense that this is a wonderful gathering spot for all: couples, families, students, writers, readers, talkers, voyeurs and dogs (who wait patiently outside). The pastries are excellent, the coffee good and strong, beer is poured properly and the staff friendly. It has become an important and integral part of the neighborhood.

Great place to have a really good latte, a salad and read a good book or do work on your laptop. Too bad the new barista is always in a bad mood. That made me lower my rating about this place :(
