A nice little hole in the wall to duck in and enjoy a good cup of coffee on a rainy afternoon. The sandwhiches looked good, so we decided to have lunch too. We both expected a little more flavor, but overall good.

I love coming here when visiting San Francisco because I feel like a native. This is a neighborhood place with a casual vibe. The food is fresh and the service friendly. I've been here for breakfast, lunch, and an end-of-day snack and glass of wine...More

After a climb up an down chinatown, this little treat, is a great spot for a rest and a coffee, and perhaps a sandwich. Loads of local with laptops, working, studying or even dating? Take it all in over freshly brewed coffee.

Nob Hill
Swanky and stylish, Nob Hill sits in the heart of the
city and is home to amazing architecture and views.
The hike to the top can be a challenging workout for
those who forego a cable car ride, but they will be
rewarded with some of the city’s most beautiful
architecture adorning its peak. Originally populated
with mansions after the Gold Rush, most if not all
were devastated in the 1906 earthquake and fire that
