    A visit here is not complete unless you see a n*ked man walking by wearing a "sock".

    PANoRAMA caters mostly to restaurants, but you can get fresh loaves from Urban Bread. Their dark, dense loaf has a faintly malty aroma and very small bubbles.

    Serious Eats · August 21, 2013
  • Andrew F.

    Try the bread pudding with caramel sauce. They make it on site!

    Andrew Fister · August 13, 2013
  • Sam W.

    Ask for Chicago style Italian beef sandwich even if it is not on the menu. Awesome. The owner is extremely nice and friendly. Excellent cafe

    Organic Ethiopian drip. Get it. And the turkey, avocado and tomato sandwich is perfection.

    Brandon Berry · November 24, 2012

  • Jake P.

    This place is very very slow at making sandwiches. Buyer beware.

    Cosy Cafe offering bagels, quiche, french padtries and baguette as well as European style bread (dark walnut bread etc). Great place close to Dolores park

    I love this place! The croissants are as flakey as I remember from Paris. Other goods are also nonpareil.

    Great place to do some work and it's not crowded like most cafes in the area. Don't forget to try a carrot Ginger muffin!
