Thank You

We’re always looking to make The Infatuation the best platform to find restaurants, and we appreciate your feedback!

Hi Infatuation reader. With restaurants around the country reopening, we understand that socializing in any form might still feel strange, and poses risks too. Should you go out to eat? That’s up to you. But we’ll continue to keep you informed as best we can. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to email us at community@theinfatuation.com.

Family Cafe

362 Columbus Ave

San Francisco, CA 94133

There aren’t a huge number of places in North Beach that make us want to stop, stay a while, and maybe make a new friend. But Family Cafe is one of those spots. This small, two-story Japanese-style cafe on Columbus Ave. (with ties to Soba Ichi in Oakland) is delightful - family portraits and vintage mirrors hang on the walls, turquoise tiles add a bright pop of color, and there’s an intimate feel here that makes you want to take your time eating your katsu, tonkatsu, or veggie sandwich ($14-16) served on Japanese milk bread. Family Cafe is open for lunch and dinner (until 8pm), but we prefer going during the day when the light makes everything feel warm and inviting.

Family Cafe is a two-story, Japanese-style cafe that recently opened in North Beach. They have a small menu of things like salads, katsu sandwiches on milk bread, and matcha drinks.

The Japanese cafe has chicken curry, udon, sandwiches, and matcha lattes available Tuesday to Friday, 12-5pm. Order online.
