This is more of a casual cafe, for a quick meal, and is especially popular during the work week. They have an assortment of sandwiches and salads, as well as wine and beer. You order at the counter and then you can go sit outside...More

The location and cafe itself looks good. Modern and nice too be. Big choice of dishes. But portions are very small while prices are incredible high. For what? Simple yoghurt for over $ 7,00 is not needed.

This is a lovely place to eat or get coffee. I loved the garden area and it was very tranquil and seems like a perfect place to meet a friend and be casual.

We grabbed a salad and sandwich here early one Saturday. Shortly after By 12.30 this place was packed! The arugula, apple, blue cheese and candied walnut salad was delicious. I'd have it again without a doubt! The grilled cheese pesto sandwich was also excellent. It's...More

Went here for a casual lunch but found it expensive. Also, what's with all the flies around this place? We had to swat them throughout lunch. Please improve.

Hayes Valley
Chock full of designer boutiques, art galleries, funky
shoe stores, and great restaurants, it’s hard to
imagine Hayes Valley once languished in the shadow of
a major freeway. Its removal allowed for the creation
of an attractive boulevard on Octavia Street with a
community park at its center and dozens of trendy
businesses to satisfy visitors looking for a stylish
