I went to Gracia Madre with some friends not knowing what to expect. Although I am not a vegan, I'm open minded and will try most vegan/ vegetarian dishes. What I received I did not expect! I ordered the enchiladas and was delighted by the cashew 'cheese', the mushrooms are what gave the dish the protein and punch it needed to fill me up. The sauce was slightly spicy and gratifying. My friend ordered a caeser salad for everyone to share- and thak God he did! The caesar salad was incredible! Not sure what was in the dressing, but it had loads of flavor; salty (but not too salty) and a bit tart - I did not miss the anchovies! The setting was warm and comfortable, I loved the long wooden tables and rustic feel. For all of you cynical of vegan Mexican food like I was, try it! you will not be disappointed!
Graffeo roasts the best coffee. Dark roast, light roast, and a blend of the two; also comes in decaf. My preference is for the dark roast. I have been drinking it for 41 years, and it is consistently roasted just dark enough and without a lot of bitterness. I believe it makes the best cup of coffee anywhere. But you don't get a cup of coffee in their shop, only beans. You can order on-line, but you must drop by the shop on Columbus if you are in San Francisco. Little Italy is it's natural home, and you might get a story or two from Luciano if you are lucky.
Drinking a central coffee right now, and the blueberry bran muffin sitting next to me is spectacular! This is the epitome of a quiet neighborhood coffee shop, with babies and dogs and regulars saying good morning to each other and the baristas are often on a first-name basis with customers. Good food, good coffee, good vibes.
There aren't a lot of drive through coffee shops in the city and that's one of the reasons I really like Java. It's especially nice on those cold mornings where getting out of your warm car is the last thing you wanna do. Also their staff is very friendly and their coffee is reasonably priced.
I don't want my kids to drink anything too cold at night, so their mango sago is our best choice. It became our best desert after dinner. I wish they will serve taro sago or coconut sago. Yumyum..
Yes, I can say that I am a milk tea lover. This is the reason why I can't settle on purchasing my milk tea at just one store. But for this store, looks like that I'll be returning from time to time!
This place is pretty creative with their decorations, at time they are very relaxing, and then bubbly. There is no certain mood in here and I like that to a place, plus they have killer tea in here.
What a great experience I had in here last week, my friends took me here and everything was amazing, from the exterior and the ambiance to the tea and the services, everything was so top notched.
This place is pure magic in my opinion. They have amazing tea in here. I always get the cold ones but I am planning to get a hot one for next time, just to mix things up and see what’s up.
This is a great place to take a break and have a long breather that you always needed. I love it in here because they have fresh brewed tea and the lemons are always fresh.
