Local coffee house & roaster - Martha herself might even be behind the coffee bar! Out front is the best parklet in Noe to enjoy on a sunny morning - or take grab a bagel from two doors up and enjoy your coffee in the brand new Noe Town Square across the street.

Excellent neighborhood sushi - not your standard California Roll join, much more interesting menu than your standard sushi shop. Call to put your name on the list if you want to go at prime time.

Definitely in the City, but definitely no View...but it's our current go-to Dim Sum restaurant, just outside of Chinatown in the Financial District. Top Notch! Easier than dealing with Coi Palace.

Does it merit having won the 538 burrito brackets? Maybe not, but it is solid, will give you a true Mission Burrito/Taco experience, and *is* better than others on the block. Update 10/2018 - go soon, the family that owns the building and the business is squabbling and it may go out of business in the next few months.

SF's current hot spot for bread - Josey Baker mans the oven. Excellent coffees, nice place to sit and enjoy. The home of SF's unfairly maligned SF $4 toast - amazing scratch-made toppings, it's worth it!
