After training at San Francisco’s renowned Tartine Bakery, pastry chef Zoe Nathan teamed up with husband Josh Loeb to open this popular café, known for its use of local, organic ingredients. The dining room is open and airy, with a high ceiling, wooden tables topped with miniature flower vases, and glass display cases filled with Nathan’s homemade treats, which range from salted caramel bars to maple-bacon biscuits. Breakfast favorites include the “green eggs and ham” (La Quercia prosciutto, pesto, and arugula on an English muffin), while the lunch menu lists specialties like the barbecued pork sandwich with spicy house-made pickles.

Insider Tip:

The line is often out the door during brunch hours, so make sure to arrive early or call in your order ahead of time.
