If you enjoy a stylish breakfast, the classic way, have time and want to start your day in a good moose’s way: go here.
The coffee - espresso and cappuccino - is of course wonderful. The Norwegian - inspired salmon & egg breakfast was a real treat. Fresh fruit, fresh juice, croissants, in a Parisienne environment - and then next to Chinatown - all of that gets you ready for another San Francisco day!

Nice ambiance and menu matching the French theme located at the gateway to Chinatown. Eggs Benedict and cauliflower soup and lettuce salad each very good. Most all the menu items are listed with French names but with clear English descriptions. With the unfortunate exception of "Salmon Bagel", no further description. This was in fact a bagel with lox and cream cheese, a small disappointment for me as I had wished for smoked salmon.

If you are looking for a French feeling in San Francisco, this is definitely the place to go. It is located right in front of the Dragon's Gate. During my trip, I ate there twice and the food was always delicious. The personnel was very friendly and helpful. Overall, a charming experience. Will surely return.

Always look forward to visiting Cafe De La Presse when in San Francisco. Their food, pastries, and wine are delicious. True French Food ! The Steak Frites, Onion Soup, Pate, and Croissants were in the menu this trip. Delicious.

This restaurant is located right in front of the dragon's gate in San Francisco. We only stopped by for breakfast during our trip, but were very satisfied with the service and food. Menu contains standard choices of french toast, bagels, and several egg combination plates, etc.The atmosphere and overall look of the place is very quaint and oddly charming. The bar area is decorated with antique bottles and other items, with rustic/antique finishes all throughout the location. This place is not huge, but it's deceptively larger than it appears with a "lower" floor down a couple of steps where more seating can be found. Food was great, the staff was nice, and the location very convenient.
