We have nothing but good things to say about Verve. The coffee is excellent and the pastries and sandwiches are some of the best cafe foods in the city. The space in the Castro is set up to accommodate maximum hangout time by yourself or with a group. As required by the city, they have avocado toast. It’s good.

The Mill in Nopa is the place you keep hearing about with the fancy toast, and it’s worth paying for, especially to hang out here a little longer.
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.
Acme Bread Company
Head to Acme Bread Company in the Ferry Building for some of the best bread in the city.
