    Chef Kris Toliao brings a little slice of Japan to this cute Outer Richmond café. His Japanese breakfast is a collection of small, savory plates that you can mix (or not mix) however you’d like. Read more

    More cafe than bakery, Cassava serves Asian-inspired bites. The Japanese breakfast (weekends only) includes miso soup, wakame salad, a poached egg in dashi broth and more. Read more

    Great for brunch and dinner. Leige waffle & croque madame were both great in the morning. Got a roasted half chicken for dinner that was awesome. My girlfriend's baked char was tasty too. A+ service!

    Delicately crafted Japanese fusion; everything is amazing. Brunch al fresco, w/ curry meatballs, burrata + egg and kale, or a traditional Japanese breakfast. Delicious coffee & cocktails too.

    Came here for dinner again after expansion and food remains just as great! Fave entrees: roasted ckn (so moist & big portion) and porchetta! Panna cotta was light and yummy! Service awesome as always

    Try the Japanese Breakfast- bowl filled with sticky sushi rice and seared albacore, seasoned with house-made miso and finished with fresh pickles, albacore tataki, & a runny soft-poached egg. Read more

    Best liege waffles in the city. Tasty brunch menu so if you find yourself in the outer richmond, eat here. Nothing too special to go out of your way for but they do take brunch reservations.

    While the Japanese breakfast isn’t a breakfast for someone who usually likes, say, pancakes, I found it to be elegant and a nice break from the usual lineup. Read more

    Highly recommend the prix fixe for dinner, great value. Standouts were the steelhead cod and blood orange panna cotta.

    $3.75 mint tea?! Actually it's delicious and worth it. Steeped with honey and rose water. Sounds weird but worth a try, trust me!

    Reopened as of 7/3. Just as good, only larger. Start with the shrimp & avocado sandwich and end with a Green tea & Yuzu macaroon, if you please.

    I can't go more than a fortnight without the Meatballs. Also, if you haven't added the Friday night Pop-up dinners to your bucket list, well then you know what has to be done.

    Great choice for brunch. The pork shoulder open faced sandwich is a great choice if you don’t mind a fattier cut of pig.
