I stopped in here for drinks before dinner with a couple of old friends. This is a French style cafe that offers the traditional service of a pastis (Pernod or Ricard) with ice and water. It was delightful - I had two. A nice experience.

Terrific for breakfast and brunch... my only experiences. This restaurant on Grant and Sears on Powell are our favorite morning food locations. This restaurant also has a “ street scene”.Yet the food and service brings us back on our 2 yearly visits to San Francisco.

Atmosphere was nice. Staff was on top of orders, refills, etc. Food was average for the price. Nothing stood out to call this place a go-to next visit.
