    Cora's SFO post is fresh and sophisticated-a lounge feel with an eye-catching menu. There are elevated takes on simple dishes like, Spiced Fresh Tomato Soup or Grilled Cheese with farmhouse cheddar. Read more

    Really enjoyed the Grilled Avocado Salad. Cherry AND sundried tomatoes were a pleasant surprise. Avocado was cooked just right--completely creamy. High quality "bacon" strips. Great dish.

    The stellar grilled cheese features a gooey blend of cheddar and feta cheeses on grilled sourdough. It's well worth the $10. Read more

    The fresh tomato soup and grilled cheese is just the right portion and simply scrumptious. A little on the salty side, but good.

    Offering travelers upscale comfort in the form of oysters, lobster mac and cheese, steak tacos, and stiff seasonal drinks. Bonus for opening at 5 a.m. and offering biodegradable utensils to go.

    Tried to get snacks and drinks, but waited 25 min for two cocktails then just cancelled them. Being ignored by the bartender so she can pour continuous shots for the three ppl at the bar is lame.
