Homey meets edgy at this inviting and stylish café, where the menu changes daily. Blow-your-mind sandwiches—stuffed with delicacies such as deep-fried soft-shell crab, artisanal ham, or buttermilk fried chicken—rely on pristine ingredients and top-chef execution. Simply presented dishes such as local cod with a stunning mélange of veggies—or the Kitchen’s macaroni and cheese made with orecchiette, Point Reyes blue, and smoked Gouda—capture the casual yet uncompromising style that makes the Bay Area dining scene so enticing. And this airy spot has attitude: Spiky sea urchin art, fine mismatched china, and spidery chandeliers are just a few of the whimsical touches. Topping it all off was our apricot upside-down cake with salted- honey whipped cream, and (save just a little room) ethereal chocolate bread pudding. Lunch and dinner daily, brunch Sat.–Sun.
