I absolutely love this place. I have celiac, so finding places to eat is a real challenge. The only entree I get every time I go (because it's so good!) is an open face smoked salmon sandwich with avocado. Sylvie (owner) makes her own gluten free bread, and it's to die for! It's incredibly dense and flavorful, unlike any type of glut ... read more

Great spot downtown! It's unassuming and isn't polished up, but the food more that makes up for it!!! Had the chicken sandwich which she grills for 4-5 minutes. The chicken was moist and mixed with herbs and a little cheese on a perfectly crispy olive baguette. I'm already planning to go back for something sweet. Great array of quich ... read more

This place has delicious treats. We happened upon the tiny spot while searching out something sweet. The selection is tough to distinguish but the lady was really patient with us. Everything in the sandwich case looked great too. We ended up with chocolate smothered vegan banana bread and a chocolate peanut butter cup. I'm a big beli ... read more

The regular coffee was decent, better than Blue Bottle's, but the expresso was weak.The tiny space could be used better. Great service.

Delicious food, meh service, limited seating
How French! The service is inefficient, but the food is quite good, oh, and there's almost nowhere to sit especially if it's rainy. This place is more suited to grab-and-go. We were a bit underwhelmed with the service (slow but not unfriendly), and took our food back to our nearby hotel due to lack of available seating. All was forgi ... read more

I used to work a block away from this place and man do I miss it! I still crave that vegan pea sandwich. Sure, sometimes the staff isn't overly friendly, sometimes the food has a sufficient amount of calories from oil, but I'll tell you that it's worth the food and desserts. Whenever I come here, it feels like I'm eating a home made ... read more

Stumbled on this place by accident.  It's a delightful little cafe with a great selection of vegan (and non-vegan) treats (muffins, chocolate, etc) as well as a unique brussels sprouts sandwich served warm and toasty (if you're wondering why the brussels sprouts don't roll off, it's because they're shredded).  The two people working ... read more

My friend and I came here for breakfast due to her gluten sensitivity. I can't remember what she ate...at all..but my croque monsieur was delicious. Warm, cheesy, and meaty, all baked open-faced on a very thick, dense, and moist piece of bread. What baking magic was used to make that piece of bread so dense yet so moist? A very filli ... read more

So happy I stumbled upon this little cafe during my visit to SF. Friendly service. Great selection of grab-and-go gluten-free, dairy-free, and vegan baked goods, healthy sandwiches, and mouth watering chocolate treats. Perfect quick stop before shopping at Macy's across the street.

Amazing food and a bountiful variety of super delicious baked goods. I've gone here two days in a row now and I have a feeling I'll be back tomorrow because that's how good this place is.

What a pleasant surprise to have found this gem in San Francisco. I had the best chai latte in my life, EVER!

What's the greatest is that there's so many glut ... read more

Inviting Cafe full of delicious treats
Was out exploring the neighbourhood around my hotel when the delicious smells wafting away from the cafe drew me inside. Amazing and filling breakfast. Returned every morning. Enjoyed the warm welcome and interesting conversation with Sylvie, the owner. Hopefully she will start a blog and post some of her recipes.
