Wonderful restaurant, great value in the prix fixe with wine pairings. Lost half star (if I could) as the waitress was a bit speedy taking our dishes away as the last forkful was still in our mouths). Would definitely go back if in CA again.

Our second meal at Heirloom cafe - a little neighbourhood gem in the heart of Mission. It is tucked away on a corner; one would think it was simply another home in the area. Love that is has a communal large table in the centre,...More

Good concept with an open kitchen. Food was very good but far overpriced for the small portions. Service was average. What disturbed me the most was the noisy environment, we were almost unable to talk normally.

Heirloom Cafe is an unassuming place on the edge of the Mission. We were there on a rainy winter evening and Heirloom was a very welcoming home-style place to land. Everyone, including the owner, was friendly with the right balance of formal and casual. Food...More
