Fantastic neighborhood cafe serving all sorts of wonderfully delicious fare. One can sit inside on a cozy couch with a latte and a fresh baked scone or outside in the garden area overlooking the bay with a cold beer. Fresh juices, crepes, sandwiches, soups, salads and much more served here by the terrific folk at Crossroads.
One can't go wrong here as the cause is terrific and so too are the prices. Do yourself a favour and pop around the corner to their restaurant for a fantastic dinner or a weekend brunch.
I stayed in the neighborhood for a long weekend and ate at Crossroads every day. I will miss it dearly when I get back to New York.
You can't go wrong with their lengthy menu, which is full of breakfast hits, sandwiches, pastries, and smoothies. One standout item is the Eggel, essentially a fluffy omelet sandwiched in a delicious toasted bagel. The crepes and waffles also remain memorable days later.
The staff is kind and attentive, and all very professional. The ambiance is great, with a large bookstore and a beautiful garden facing the Embarcadero and the Bay. It's also hard to find a better deal in the city, and it's easy to get full on less than $10.
My heart exploded walking into this cafe.
It sticks out in a city like San Francisco (and California in general), which is full of so many cookie-cutter, stylish, airy, white-walled, minimalist cafes. Crossroads Cafe has character. It's a book store, it's full of art on its walls, and it has a huge garden/patio outside with a view of the water.
It has mismatched, comfy lounge chairs and plenty of space, tables and outlets. Did I mention the $1 coffee?! And beer, wine, afternoon tea, and endless food options?
This cafe just put me in a good mood. It's a great place to catch up with a friend or just hang out. Highly recommend.
An artistic retreat with books and artwork throughout, spacious indoors with several seating options as well as some seating outside. Quiet. Food looked good. Coffee was a bit bitter.
Brilliant indoor-outdoor cafe and bookstore that even (gasp!) has available parking all weekend. Probably overall the most beautiful place serving coffee to park with a book for a respite from the urban maelstrom in the whole city.
The coffee is solid and most other beverages hit the mark. Once in a while a beer on the patio is an equally fine choice. The patio is for sure the main attraction, with a number of tables in diverse seating arrangements that allow customers to relax in what feels more like a park or a garden, but with regular beverage service available.
The bookstore is good for a few minutes' perusal as well. If you didn't bring your own I can't imagine anyone would have difficulty finding something worth a look.
*Now one major caveat. I'm dropping 5 stars on this venue and tagging it in my Working Remotely collection, BUT, there is no wifi. This does not distress me majorly, as a good share of my most productive cafe work involves marking up paper copies of things, outlining, organizing thoughts, and other tasks that don't require an Internet connection. And it's much better to have this established loud and proud up front so there is no confusion--also far better to have no connection than a lousy one. But one should not expect to turn this space into a second office. So it might be 4-star territory if I were confining thoughts to remote work alone, but I'm not going to demote it for falling short according to my arbitrary categories, when it does just fine being itself.
