This cafè / bar is beautiful inside, the service is a bit slow. Since I was alone I had a seat at the bar which I found really cool. Ordered the Feta Spinach Omelette and as you can see in the photo, it was very nicely prepared, the spinach was fresh and the fried potatoes were to die for :D

We had breakfast and service were very good. We had lox and bagels and eggs benedict, both good. The ambiance at this restaurant is very nice and we sat in the bar area at a high top table. The breakfast is a bit pricey, however, it is San Francisco and unless you go to a diner or small cafe, it... More

Delicious food, great service and a fun atmosphere that resembles some of the cafes (but larger) that you see in rural France. Very rustic and wonderful.

This is an excellent place to kill your saudade for a French breakfast: just go to the bar and hangout while you read the papers and observe the bored housewives and gallery owners chat along all morning while you are being overcharged for great coffee, a good croissant and an omelet with whatever you wish. The service is perfectly arrogant,... More

Ideal for a main course and a good glass of wine; excellent food. Service more efficient than really personal.

Food was good, not great. Great location near Union Square. Feels like a Parisian cafe. Unfortunately, the food was mediocre. Ham and gruyere omelette was okay, but the spinach feta omelette lacked flavor.

Found this place a couple years ago and come back once or twice each visit. Have enjoyed breakfast, lunch, and dinner! Had dinner this trip and the staff was friendly, service fantastic, and food was fantastic. Onion soup and steak frites are my favorite ! Oh and great wine selection.

A perfect place to stop at for an Italian coffee or to eat a sallad, or doing both. Nice environment and good service.

Nice atmosphere without feeling crowded. I had a nice size omelet with spinach, tomato and feta cheese with potatoes and toast on the side. Husband had poached eggs on toast with a mushroom gravy which he enjoyed. Good place since convenient to the gate, the entrance to China Town.

Thank Trainbook
