Jane on Fillmore

Perfect For: Breakfast Coffee & A Light Bite Keeping It Kind Of Healthy Lunch Screaming Children Vegetarians

Jane on Fillmore is the kind of place you’d go to steal a baby. It’s like they’re casting daily for the J.Crew Kids catalog in this place, because it’s always full of perfect little Pac Heights children that love baked goods and paninis just as much as we do.

Aside from the child models, we love Jane for its fresh, healthy food that gets served up in hearty portions. The salads are amazing, and the breakfast sandwiches, granola, and coffee are a great way to start the day too. If only they were open for dinner.

But what we love most about Jane On Fillmore is that they walk the fine line of serving food for the Lululemon crowd - kale smoothies and “gluten free quinoa bread” (an actual thing that actually exists) - while also managing to please the rest of us with sausage biscuits on the weekends and excellent cookies. Only one item has ever let us down - the organic 6 grain cereal. Instead go for the egg sandwich. It’s pre-srirachaed, and one of the best morning choices you can make.

As for the rest, the high ceilings, white walls, marble counters and huge windows overlooking Fillmore give Jane on Fillmore a well-lit, cookbook-kitchen-photo vibe (except for the creepy upstairs with the dusty armchairs). You can even watch the chefs puree chickpeas for fresh hummus in the kitchen. Once you see that, you can’t go back.

Speaking of ‘going back’, I’m not sure that’s something you can do after you publicly suggest that this is a good place to acquire a kid. But I’ll be testing that theory soon. Jane is too good not to.

Food Rundown


Two options: regular or vegan/gluten-free. Both come with perfectly fresh raspberries, strawberries, and bluberries, as well as the ideal nut to oat ratio. Jane’s granola nails the sweet/salty combo - especially in the non-vegan variety. Must be the meat traces.
