Cafe Meuse review image
7.8

Cafe Meuse

We go to Cafe Meuse to drink a ton of wine without dropping a PG&E payment’s worth of money. Their flights are $19-$21, and feature three large glasses of whites or reds—which go great with snack-y dishes off their solid menu, like charcuterie or bruschetta with burrata. But heavy pours aren’t the only reason we’re here. This charming spot has a come-as-you-are mentality that’s ideal for second dates or unwinding on a Wednesday night, since no one will bat an eye if you show up in sweats, and you can actually have a conversation without having to yell over loud noise. Grab a seat by the window and watch the cable cars on Hyde Street roll past. And don’t leave without ordering the apple crisp topped with a perfect scoop of vanilla ice cream—it goes especially well with those three glasses.
