We had a combo - 2 meats and 2 tasty cheese served complete with add ons. It was pretty impressive what was served on plate. But prices for a wine were a little too steep, but it might be just for me coming from nz.More

With the tremendous view in the background we enjoyed the unique space for a private business brunch. The food and coffee were excellent. The cheese shop has a superior selection of products. This is a great spot for a class or event.

We found this place while walking around ghiradeli square. The girls working couldn't be nicer. The grilled cheese and tomato soup was awesome. We have been craving it since we left San Fran. Would definitely return and recommend this place to anyone visiting.
