  • Marina UDe verdad con tan rico café y croissant es muy difícil tratar mejor al cliente? Pésima atención.

    55555 by Marina U

  • PureWowA little slice of Paris right at the edge of Union Square and Chinatown. Come here to feel European and unwind over a bowl of French onion soup or a basket of fries.

    55555 by PureWow

  • Chris IBest French Bistro Breakfast (magazine shop embedded!)

    55555 by Chris I

    55555 by DJ C.

  • Alex B.Come here for the Euro- style free coffee house read. Phenomenal magazine collection, good newspapers.

    55555 by Alex B.

    22222 by Nic W.

  • Wilson JAuthentic bistro ambience, perfectly executed French dishes, great wine and magazine selection: a great go-to stretch of the homeland in SF!

    55555 by Wilson J

  • DensDig this cafe. You can order to-go from the coffee bar tucked behind the bar. Also amazing magazine selection (mostly indie UK mags) -- soccer, bikes, wine, fashion -- worth checking out.

    55555 by Dens

  • Michele T.Bad coffee. Fake maple syrup. Generally just not great.

    33333 by Michele T.
