Le Marais churns out phenomenal croissants, granola, and Stumptown coffee starting at 7am, and serves the best French pastries in the city. The breakfast board mix and match option is pretty wonderful (since you can get a little granola, an egg, smoked salmon, and your pick of pastries). Just avoid the avocado “toast” - it’s an avocado on a croissant, which is silly - and brace yourself to be treated as an inconvenience at best. Tres French.

A Cow Hollow French bistro that’ll make you feel like you’re in Paris. Gamine’s got it going on.
A very solid neighborhood/date night restaurant in a neighborhood that could use more of both of those things. Just try not to fight each other over the squid ink pasta.

Tartine Manufactory in the Mission is a huge operation with excellent pastries, coffee, and ice cream, and dinner as well.
Jane on Fillmore
Food for the Lululemon crowd, and for us too. Jane on Fillmore finely toes the line between healthy and delicious. If only they were open for dinner.
Arlequin is a cute Hayes Valley cafe and garden that you just might miss if you walk by too fast. Don't make that mistake.
