We have walked by Caffe Union several times when in SF. Today we decided to give it a try for a late lunch. While it is a small, old-style, somewhat dated restaurant, the food, employees, and atmosphere were great. Our plates were delivered heaping with...More

Tucked away among the shops and restaurants of happening Union Street, is this cozy restaurant! I couldn't choose between the different specialty breakfast entrees. So, I got two. The eggs of paradise were amazing - homemade tomato sauce perfection over perfectly poached eggs and yummy...More

We just happened to stumble on the caffe & were attracted to the busy, exciting, arty vibe of the place. Very popular & quite small but if you go on a week day it's much better. I had the wheat honey pancakes with strawberries &...More

Marina District
Beautiful homes, beautiful people, and a beautiful
backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge welcome visitors to
the Marina. Originally the location for the
Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915 (whose
remnants can be seen at the Palace of Fine Arts), much
of the land was filled and flattened to accommodate a
world’s fair. That ample space has given way to a
jogger’s paradise at the northern edge of the city.
