Such delicious food! We came on a Thursday morning and there was very little wait time. The food was amazing and the many tempting varieties made it hard to choose! We'll definitely be back again next time we're in town.

South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated
vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs
and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to
find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter
for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able
to do more than just business - museums, top quality

I would assume about 7a.m. If that's your goal. The area is not the greatest there are a fair amount of homeless hanging around in the area. I felt more comfortable being in a bit of a crowd and not being the only one... More

Now located in a beautiful 1910 building with brick walls and hardwood floors with an open kitchen and very cozy atmosphere. Roof top seating when the weather permits for coffee and pastries or a glass of wine in the afternoon. We have an additional seating capacity of approximately 24 making for a quicker turnaround.
