The Continental Cafe offers a good selection of sandwiches, bagels and rolls made to order, as well a limited range of warm goods including piroshki (an Eastern European type of finger donut, stuffed with a savoury filling such as spinach), and sells its salads by the pint or half pint. This means that you can get a slightly quirky and... More

When I walked in I wasn't quite sure what was here since the delicatessen is rather basic. But, I was impressed with the help I received when placing my order for a turkey wrap. Every item that was included was offered and it was nice to have a nice customized wrap for lunch.

Even though they were swamped by a large conference the food was great. Very reasonable price. Will most likely lunch here my whole week.

I have stopped by this deli for my morning bagel and trade show snacks for years. It is conveniently located kitty korner from the Intercontinental Hotel and on the way to the Moscone Center. I always support patronizing independently owned businesses (over Starbucks, for instance) when I can. In seasons past, this place was perfect with always having an assortment... More

We ate at this little deli a couple of times during our recent visit to San Francisco and were pleased with the quality of the food and friendly service. The staff were pleasant and helpful, making up our sandwiches to our exact specifications. The ingredients were fresh and tasty. We ate in on the second visit and it was perfectly... More

This was a good place to get a quick and inexpensive breakfast while in San Francisco. They have bagels and pastries. They also serve lunch, but we never ate lunch here. They have coffee, lattes, mochas, etc. and fresh squeezed orange juice. I was impressed at the freshness of the bagels too. The people working here are very pleasant. It... More

Staying in SoMa

Neighbourhood Profile
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighbourhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
