  • Mariianne CraryThis is by far my favorite lunch/brunch place in the Bay Area. High quality modern French right by the harbor. Peace on earth. Not fancy, far too small a space, nice people. My 2015 winner.

  • Alex H.Back in the day, this place used to be a disgusting little "cafe" run by a nasty ol' fuckface. But this is great! Croque Madame is where it's at if'n you're trying to keep it real. Like French-real.

    55555 by minaron


  • Naz H.The kobe beef burger is always a must, but the PEI mussels, especially now in the Automne version (apple cider, cream, saucisse, chestnuts) are spectacular. The duck confit is always a winner.

    55555 by Naz H.
