This place in no way resembles a picnic. It’s in SOMA, there are no baskets, and the food is way better than sad pasta salad and soggy sandwiches. Maybe we’re just bad at picnics. The breakfast is good, especially the granola, and the hot lunch options change daily are a nice switch from the unfortunate salad bar you regularly resort to. They do a weekend brunch that is also worth checking out if you’re in the area.
