Four years ago my wife and I went. However in four years much changed. We went here to order some takeout to bring back to my hotel. When I asked what was available for takeout I was told "go outside and look at the window." We were told that only the sandwiches that have been sitting in the display for... More

Decided to have a late breakfast/brunch at this place. Our first reminder that San Francisco is an expensive place. Standard items on the menu but nothing that stands out (except for the prices). Visited this place one but won't return.

We went here on the recommendation of our guide on an open top bus tour. We went with our tired 4 year old. The staff were very welcoming and lovely with our child. The restaurant was a pleasant, comfortable place to be, the food was awesome and it came quickly. Recommended.

Whether you're just looking for a healthy breakfast Smoothie on the go or you want to sit inside and enjoy a hot breakfast, there's plenty of choice. The service isn't the warmest or most helpful but the food is ok. I had the bacon scrambled eggs with spinach and pepper. Delicious!

I wanted a light takeout and decided to give the Italian/Mediterranean focused cafe a try. With a large selection of salads, sandwiches and desserts, I settled on the Greek Salad and a Napoleon pastry. I was very pleased with my choices.

And really enjoyed it. I had two salads (beet and barley) and a happy hour Pinot Grigio for a total bill of $15 and it hit the spot. The food was very good and my $4 wine not bad either. The ambiance is okay but the service was very good. I would go here again for a quick and tasty... More

We stopped here before our tour of Alcatraz and were in a little bit of a rush. We waited in line for 10 minutes before someone even acknowledged us. We told our server we had to be out in an hour which didn't seem to be a problem because there were only a couple tables in the restaurant. It took... More

After a busy morning of walking around exploring union square and the surrounding area, it was exactly what we needed! Great sandwiches and good coffee. The staff were reasonably friendly and the food came out in decent time. Definitely a great stop for some good food in an excellent location!

Based on the name I assume this place takes it's inspiration from Italy. However not much Italian charm over this place. Rather a rather noisy, functional, maybe transactional, place. But what do you bank on when in a hurried biz meeting - exactly - just that. Bellini offers fast efficient service, good space, background noise to blur out your confidentials....and... More
