Definitely order the strawberry soufflé if it's in season! Takes an hour, so be prepared to have some wine or coffee if you're not planning to order a full meal beforehand.
order wine to while away the hour you'll wait before souffles are served ... while you're waiting, venture to the backyard restroom (as an excuse to glimpse Jacqueline w/ her toque & basket of eggs)
Order a souffle, any souffle. They are sublime. Start with a savory and end with a sweet one. You can't go wrong. Be prepared to eat for at least one hour, so avoid awkward dates.
Favorite place in SF. She's been making 50+ soufflés a night for 35 years here now. So she knows what she's doing. Also, if in season do get the strawberry soufflé.
This is a hidden gem. A French soufflé restaurant in North Beach. No website. No Facebook page but amazing food, service and atmosphere. Best birthday ever.
Cafe Jacqueline is a tiny all-souffle restaurant made for a romantic night out. Your meal will be bookended with one savory and one sweet souffle.
If you are coming on a weekend, try to make a reservation the day before. It's at it's busiest on weekends and it's a really small place.
Amazing souffles ...Take your time there given that it takes an hour to cook your souffle but it will be worth your time *_*
The restaurant can get very warm and they can't leave the door open or it affects the oven or souffle or something, so wear something cool.
Try the chocolate souffle - it’s divine! Tip: take an Uber in North Beach for FREE (up to $20) anytime between now until Saturday 12/20/13 using the promo code NorthBeachSF. (Excludes TAXI). #NBSF
For veggie lovers... Ask them to make you an asparagus, cilantro, tomato and garlic soufflé! Delish!
Strawberry and prosciutto mushroom soufflés were amazing. The seafood one were also good, but less so.
This is a unique place. Jacqueline prepares soufflé, one by one. One of the best places to go in SF.
Every course is a souffle! Love it...want to try it..but I heard it can take a while
All savory soufflés here are cheese based. Dairy adverse patrons be aware.
Be patient. Takes a bit so be with interesting people.
eat the dessert souffles slowly, the powdered sugar makes you cough
there's only one Jacqueline, so be prepared to wait. loved the strawberry souffle.
Caviar, figs wrapped in prosciutto, Dubonnet and a lovely partner = LOVE!!!
Don't have appetizers this will make ur meal last 3 hrs. I m not kidding.
There is basically nothing you could order that is not amazing.
Amazing mushroom and chocolate soufflés!
Thank Chef Jaceuline for your meal- but she doesn't like her picture taken :)
The crab souffle cannot be beat
Great souffles with a glass of Sauternes!
Best white chocolate souffle. Ever.
Peach souffle is awesome
