The service wasn't great and the menu is pretty limited. On the plus side, the coffee is great and the food we did get was really good

One of SanFrancisco's greatest treats. I love this little place: the atmosphere, the food, the outdoor seating. A real must!

A great little find on Maiden Lane off Union Square--anything on their Baguette is amazing. Order a sandwich and a Caprese salad and a glass of wine and sit outside and people watch, One of the few places in Union Square area you can sit outside. GREAT!

Sat outside on a cool day. Located on a quiet blocked off street. The fresh grilled vegetable plate was wonderful...with a slice of bread and glass of wine. Inside and outside seating. We were there with a friend's baby, so sat outside and it was perfect.

Mocca on Maiden Lane has very good sandwiches and great salads. Its fun to go into the cafe and see the salads and then decide which one to have. The prices are higher than some places, but the quality is good. There is seating inside and out. Today it was a gorgeous sunny warm day so I chose outside to... More

I have been coming here for 15 years... The food is always great though not cheap, the service impeccable though a little on the surly side, and the view from the alley a classic slice of San Francisco beauty. Compared to other famous Union square eatery, this place is really not that expensive. I love all their antipasti dishes. And... More

The food was very good. Nice sized portions. Seating inside and outside. Inside seating is tight. I agree with other comments regarding the servers attitude.

This is an extremely classy cafeteria with beautiful food. My daughters and husband had lunch at Mocca and it was some of the best food! It was expensive but worth it. We had chicken salad sandwiches, hot beef tip sandwiches, and nicoise salad sandwiches with pesto.We also shared an avocado salad. We didn't have dessert but there was some of... More

Food was really good but the service was kind of rude, they seemed a little desperate to get over the job so they lack of patience. I'm not sure I would be back

What's up with the rude attitude. Impolite. Abrupt and disrespectful. Come here if you want to be humiliated by waiters and an uptight owner. They are lucky I was in a patient mood. Stay away from this place
