Madame Jacqueline’s rendition of this delicacy is ethereally delicious. Souffle comes in sweet or savory. This is a one woman show,with the souffle handcrafted to perfection so expect to spend at least 2-2.5 hours or so ( if you want the main course and dessert)....More

Discovered Cafe Jacqueline on TripAdvisor while scrolling through to find a decent dessert place in San Francisco. Decent is an understatement. We arrived late to this this San Fran institution. It's a small French restaurant serving classic French fare. We ordered a coffee, white chocolate...More

We visited this restaurant recently and were not very impressed. The salad we ordered was not bad, but the main course lobster souffle was way too salty. For dessert, we had the lemon souffle and it was very good. The restaurant is small but comfortable,...More

Mme Jacqueline still going strong! Most recently, made reservation for 5:30 a day in advance, shared two soufflés (one for main course and one for dessert) an onion soup and a bottle of great French wine. It's pricey and well worth it. Prepare for the...More

North Beach / Telegraph Hill
The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds
of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian
ristorante come together to create the charming
neighbourhood of North Beach, once the stomping
grounds for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of
North Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always
suitable for younger visitors, few neighbourhoods in
the city exude as much European charm and style.
