    We love this cozy neighborhood cafe for hearty breakfast all day; it's also worth visiting for happy hour, where you'll find $3.50 beers, and maybe some live music, too.

    Apart from bringing your food to the table, it's self service here. But I've always tipped pretty well (I'm a foreigner, so I over-tip) and they bring me everything, condiments, water, my coffee :)

    Delicious breakfast burritos, great coffee, free wifi (though the wifi speeds are a little slow). Really cozy. Amazingly friendly staff, too.

    The Breakfast Burrito is awesome - good for takeout because it'll still be steamin' hot by the time you lay down in GG Park to eat it in the morning sun/fog :) Big enough to share.

    Solid food with a low-key vibe. Lox on a poppyseed bagel is a winner. Breakfast burrito is pressed and hot!

    This small corner cafe has a welcoming staff. With free WiFi, it's a great place near USF to sit and work, with excellent coffee and baked goods.

    For breakfast, go for the Mt. Ventoux Breakfast Sandwich on a croissant or the breakfast burrito (if you're really hungry). For lunch, go for The Coppi.

    One of the easiest cafes to get stuck in. I stop by just for an espresso and end up hanging out listening to music and enjoying happy hour.

    Great coffee and bagels. Best hangover cure is the breakfast burrito or the Elvis, a pb&j with banana. Awesome staff too

    The scramble sandwich is awesome! Love the little bacon bits hidden in the wonderfully yellow mound of scrambled egg. Coffee-wise, I could get better elsewhere.

    If you have food allergies, like corn for example, be sure to ask exactly what's in the food. They don't put all of the ingredients on the menu. The salad, for example, gets pretty complex.

    Their kitchen doesn't have a set closing time. Seems they close it whenever they feel like it. I wouldn't recommend trying to order within an hour of closing.
