    Pretty great chai and macchiatos with quiet outside seating by South Park.

    Sarah · December 22, 2014

    The caprese sandwich is the best veggie option here

    Grab a quick bite at South Park's staple for lunch, this breezy cafe uses mostly local, organic ingredients. Try French-influenced sandwiches and salads, or a rich brownie or pecan square. Read more

    Coffee was great. Sandwich was great. Might just have to become a regular here.

    With South Park right outside, who needs wi-fi? Grab a sidewalk table and rest your eyes on some greenery at this delightful SOMA hideaway. Read more

    The Niçoise salad is so great. The dressing is just the correct amount!

    Brian DeWitt · August 29, 2014

    Get your sandwich toasted and on multi grain bread! Delicious

  • David D.

    The only reason to go here is to eat in the park. But you don't have to go here to do that. So you should go somewhere else. Unless you like waiting in line. Then this is a really good spot.

    David Death · March 19, 2014
  • Reuel D.

    Great neighborhood spot!

    Reuel Daniels · February 21, 2014

    Cozy spot to grab coffee and lunch by the park!

    Carolynn Choi · June 24, 2013
  • Daniel S.

    Free 2 hour street parking in South Park, right next door.

    Daniel Shi · May 31, 2013
  • Jonathan C.

    Cool little spot in South Park. If line is too long and all you want is a drip, you can grab a cup and drop amount in provided box. No need to wait for cashier.

    Jonathan Chinchilla · April 29, 2013
  • Chris 🍻 M.

    don't wait in line for coffee, just drop $2 in the jar, grab your cup and go!

    Chris 🍻 Makarsky · April 24, 2013
  • Francesca C.

    Bring your own food to eat by the green table in the park. Their salads aren't as good as the setting.

    Francesca C. · April 13, 2013
  • Michael R.

    Their coffee doesn't taste like they love it. Actually it doesn't taste good at all.

    Michael Robocop · April 12, 2013
  • Paulette B.

    Get the pasta portofino salad and iced mocha, and hang out for a little while. The Gipsy Kings playing in the background will make up for there being no Internet.

    Paulette Bleam · March 29, 2013
  • Liza S.

    Offer to watch thy neighbors' gadgets while you order. He/she will do the same.

    Liza Sperling · September 21, 2012
  • Alec P.

    Try the Bread Salad

    Alec Page · July 20, 2012
  • Adam M.

    Get the Turkey sandwich, but make sure you get it HOT

    Adam Mintz · June 12, 2012
  • Takeshi O.

    No WiFi, few outlets, but plenty of spots to stay. Good view of South Park and sweet chai :)

    Takeshi Ohishi · June 8, 2012
  • Nina Rossi K.

    Awesome peach soda. Try it with cream

    Nina Rossi Komel · June 7, 2012
  • Claire D.

    Great salads!

    Claire Daugherty · May 30, 2012
  • Adam M.

    Get the turkey sandwich, but ask for it "hot." Makes the sandwich ten times better

    Adam Mintz · May 13, 2012
  • Rachael L.

    Great coffee, I am convinced they brew w/ cinnamon. Cash jar at register to bypass the line if you're just getting drip.

    Rachael Lynn · May 12, 2012
  • Norman L.

    Don't forget to bring your own wifi.

    Norman Liang · April 23, 2012
  • Liza S.

    Hot coffee in a tall glass with a spoon.

    Liza Sperling · April 3, 2012
  • Tim B.

    Try the Grilled Chicken Sandwich - This and the Turkey Sandwich are the best :)

    Tim Bartel · February 27, 2012
  • Blythe R.

    Despite the info on yelp, there's no wifi here. Come here to find people talking to each other and writing in and reading from actual books.

    Blythe Riske · January 23, 2012
  • Allen R.

    Old skool dot commers lunched here at ground during the first boom. Most of you reading this are too young to know what I am talking about.

    Allen Romero · November 8, 2011
  • John W.

    I recommend the veggie sando! I think it's the tastiest one they have and I'm not even a vegetarian
