    One of the best meals I had in SF. We ordered french toasts and the toast with avocado and two pouchet. Both comes with two portions, perfect for sharing. Best idea ever.

    Stopped by after dinner for some chamomile tea. Cozy spot, several tea, coffee and dessert options. Would be a great place to relax with a book. Love the decor.

    One of my favorite lunch spots. Brunch served all day every day. Enough Said! But my menu favorites are actually the Berkeley bowl and turkey BLT with the spicy harissa mayo on the side! YUM.

    Closest thing I've found to a real pub atmosphere in SF. That is, you can go there and get a beer and take your time about it. With friends or on your own reading. Food is good but a touch pricey?

    I have dreams about the lavender and watermelon lemonades here. The watermelon is only available during the summer months. Get it with the breakfast burrito. Everything else on the menu is subpar.

    Grilled cheese and tomato soup is exactly what you would hope from that combo. Apple chicken salad is great too. All the staff are nice and helpful - very attentive.

    A cozy, neighborhood cafe atmosphere that is reminiscent of the shuttered Chestnut St. location. Uniquely different from her sister cafes in SoMa & Hayes Valley.

    Huge glasses of fresh squeezed OJ from the zumex machine are a solid hangover cure. Makes a great combo with the Avocado and poached egg toast.

    This and La Boulange (across the street) are the only spots along this stretch of Fillmore where you can get a weekday cafe lunch sans the Ladies Who Lunch crowd.

    A cozy little spot to bring your book or laptop & snuggle up with some coffee & a sandwich. Rustic in feel, the fireplace & pillows make this a very easy place to get lost for an afternoon. - Jill

    Great food and excellent oversight. Two managers checked on us during our meal. Friendly busboy gave us a menu upon entering the restaurant.

    In reply to the wifi comment, no more wifi (they have a sign up). Also, incredible hash browns. Best I've had the city.

    They have a great selection of sandwiches and salads, if you're here for breakfast, the oatmeal is good as well.

    Breakfast burrito is still amazing but they don't have wifi anymore. Apparently they want people to talk to each other more. To avoid that, just tether!

    Cozy ambiance and yummy milky warm hot chocolate for those chilly SF nights! Also, tomato soup with grilled cheese = jackpot.

    Damn that breakfast burrito is good! You can live without one of the tempting (and expensive) lavender mimosas. Mehh.

    The turkey reuben is great and has a nice wasabi kick in the Dijon/Russian dressing.

    As of early 2013, the owners have opted to remove the wifi to keep the ambiance of "San Francisco's living room."

    My fave meet up spot for a cozy bite & beverage with a friend. Especially if you bring a deck of Uno cards.

    Miss The Grove on Chestnut St. This one's just as good and also is an excuse to get some exercise walking up Fillmore St.

    Chai is amazing & in a big mug! Internet is "free" depending on how much you purchase. ex: spend $3.75 for chai = 30 minutes free internet.

    My Cubano was more dry than I'd like, but my g/f's cheesesteak was good (and spicy).

    Beware dudes from nearby tech start-ups who will push back the chairs into the walkways to set up their standing desks. WTF? Otherwise, awesome free WiFi and sandwiches. Read more
