    Always love this place. Onion soup and a crab salad - what's not to like. Then, a short walk to SF Jazz and great music.

    It's a great spot for a girl's brunch out. A friend and I took our daughters for brunch, and we absolutely loved the food. It was super cute inside, and it had fancy non-alcoholic drinks for the girls and great champagne for the moms. I highly recommend Quiche and Eggs Benedict. We had a cute tower of pastries before our meal, and each one was delicious. Definitely will be going back next time we're in the city.

    We were going to SFJazz for a performance and help to manage our time without feeling rush. The meal was sumptuous the drinks and wine spot on. Have thought about other places in the neighborhood but why depart from such a great known experience.

    Charming restaurant that transported us to an earlier time filled with grace, service and ambience accompanied by a perfect lunch! French onion soup was rich in flavor. We loved the overall dining experience.
