Cafés

There are several cruises each weekend around the Bay, offering champagne brunches. Telephone 415 788 9100 for details.


  1. Café Claude

    The owner actually bought Le Barbizon Café in Paris and shipped it over piece by piece. That accounts for the authentic French feel of this back-alley bistro-like spot near Union Square, where francophiles rendezvous to imagine themselves on the Left Bank. The food, too, is suitably Gallic.

    • 7 Claude Lane between Grant & Kearny, Sutter & Bush

    • 415 392 3505

    • Dis. access

    Café Claude
  2. Caffè Trieste

    A North Beach landmark that must be experienced if you have any interest whatsoever in this quarter’s colorful history – either from the literary and artistic or the Italian points of view. It’s a really great place for a cup of whatever warm liquid you favor, and to sit and people-watch, or dip into one of the city’s free weekly papers .

    Caffè Trieste
  3. Dolores Park Café

    Across the street from historic Mission Dolores, this funky neighborhood café has it all – great views of Dolores Park, filling breakfast and lunch fare, home-made smoothies, freshly baked pastries, and a cool spot to people-watch in the heart of the Mission district. Don’t miss the live music on Friday nights.

  4. South Park Café

    Overlooking the small SoMa park favored by the younger, slacker digital set, you can while away an hour or two just taking in the relaxed setting in the knowledge that you’re in a certifiably hip locale. French food and waiters support the Parisian illusion to the best of their ability.

  5. Brainwash

    Café, bar, performance space, and, yes, laundromat, it’s got everything the young apartment dwellers who live in this industrial SoMa neighborhood need. Frequented by lesbians, gays, and straights – in short, typical San Franciscans of the edgier sort. There’s also a menu composed of solid international standards, such as a great cobb salad, tofu stir-fry, and chicken quesadilla.
