  • Mandi BThe avocado toast was pretty awesome, had delicious ricotta and lemon zest, thickness of bread was great. Only problem was that the bread was a bit burnt.

  • EaterFor a subway-tiled dream lunch, try Foundation Cafe, where they have breakfast and lunch that would make any hipster proud, including a garlicky kale Caesar with the option of fried chicken.

  • Matt S.Chicken Banh mi sandwich on a wrap with deviled egg on the side. Cookies + iced coffee are bomb. Ppl here are hipster. Hot sauz is dope.

    55555 by Matt S.


  • Andrew BLooks better than it tastes. Had the fried chicken bahn mi - omitted the tenderness and complexity of textures and flavored in an authentic bahn mi that would've been 1/3 the price.

    55555 by Andrew B


  • ClareThe California Donburi salad is great - get it w/ grilled shrimp.

    55555 by Clare


  • ClareOverpriced, but delicious. The wrap is heartier than you think; the banh mi is delicious but spicy

    55555 by Clare


  • Duann S.Fave breakfast and coffee

    55555 by Duann S.


  • Geoff R.Pretty rude & snooty staff here, even when you're being pleasant to them. Food isn't worth it either.

  • Agatha Y.Nice breakfast options. Difficult to find parking though

    55555 by Agatha Y.


  • Yash P.I think this is the only place in the city, right now, that serves Nitro cold brew.

    55555 by Yash P.


  • Kyle NThis place tries very hard to be hipster. But, the breakfast sandwiches are good. They don't serve iced coffee, so try Coffee Bar if you want better iced coffee.

    55555 by Kyle N


  • akshaya m.The California Donburi is my comfort lunch. Clean, tasty and healthy!

    55555 by akshaya m.


  • Nicholas D.Sherpa coffee has butter, coconut oil, and vanilla bean! Tons of caffeine and you won't need to eat anything for breakfast

    55555 by Nicholas D.


  • Rachel B.The iced coffee is cold brew. 👍🏼

    55555 by Patrick S


  • Erik P.Now selling buttered coffee, called "Sherpa Coffee": Four Barrel coffee, grass-fed butter, coconut oil, and vanilla bean.

    55555 by Erik P.

    55555 by Ashok L.

    33333 by Cameron M.


  • SF WeeklyThe blackened rockfish made for a fabulous lunch, with perfectly cooked, spice-dusted fish on a baguette with pineapple slaw and chipotle cream.

    55555 by SF Weekly

  • Kayo S.Modern looking cafe with nice seating. Service was a bit slow as it was the 1st day of opening, but the blackened rockfish sandwich was worth the wait. A little on the pricey side.
