Stopped here for lunch whilst staying in a hotel just around the corner. Lovely French food and a good selection of salads and sandwiches, which is just what we were looking for after a morning sightseeing. Great choice of wine and cocktails too! Fast and...More

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.

We had breakfast here one morning. I believe this is French cafe as the owners were talking in French. Anyway, the cafe is very nice, the food was average and the prices we paid rather high for the quality.
