    Kinda annoyed that the door and website says they open at 8a on Sunday, but there is an additional sign that says they open at12p, with a limited menu.

    It's a hidden gem for sure. Spacious and the staff is really friendly. Quiet the whole time we were here for brunch...they have bottomless mimosas. For only $12! And the food is bomb. 👍

    A quite place with a free WiFi n diff. tabels/booths. If I were living there, it would be a perfect place for me to work. I got the chocolate croissant and it was really good. The latte was good too.

    Half coffee shop half bar. It's almost like a Japanese mixed use space. Get the cheese plate with meat - avoid the Caesar salad.

    Terrible coffee unless you like over-heated milk that burns your tongue and a weak flavor. Granola with yogurt was ok but served with a plastic teaspoon. Clearly, they don't take food seriously.

    This place is SF's best kept secret. Not only do they have kick-ass caffeinated beverages, but the ambiance is gorgeous (fireplace encased in glass, teal walls), AND it turns into a bar after hours.

    Sugar is one of my favorite places to digitally camp out. It's often busy with art students, hipsters, yuppies, and wannabe startup entrepreneurs. Trés fun! You can throw parties here too.
