This cafe is an easy walk from Union Square, located right next to the Dragon's Gate in Chinatown. My husband truly enjoyed his Egg's Benedict remarking that the Hollandaise sauce was one of the best he'd ever tasted.

I tried the croissant sandwich, which was filled with scrambled eggs, cheese, and a mild link sausage. It was good. Both meals were served with house fried potatoes which were crispy and tasty! The menu was enticing and it was difficult to decide what to eat. I will definitely return to see what other yummy things I can find!!!

A fun, French-inspired cafe just off Union Square, at the Gates of China Town, this delightful robust gem offers delicious soups, salads and more. Their French bread is heavenly, and the atmosphere is bustling and lively. Definitely a well know hangout for both locals and tourists alike. Street-side dining is also available, should you desire the true feel of a French cafe. Their delicious food is clean, exceptional and visually stimulating.

I cannot go to San Francisco without eating at least once here. Where to begin with what to have, anything and everything is so good. Best French Cafe outside of Paris.

Dropped in an s very busy night and were able to get a tsbke in the cafe area. Nice French ambiance, well prepared and tasty food (had ahi tuna salad) and decent selection of wines. Bit pricey but not out of the ordinary for the area. Would come again.

We stumbled on to this place and were very pleasantly surprised. The atmosphere and service were excellent. It has a full bar. We weren’t that hungry so we just did appetizers which were plenty. I had the foire gra and it melted in my mouth! But it was a bit expensive @ $27 but worth it. Two friends split a hamburger and it was plenty of food. The appetizer salad was also good.
