Judy's Cafe

December 2007
Brunch with GSBers

Judy's is a popular Marina brunch spot that always has lines in front of it on weekend mornings. We waited over half an hour to get a table for 7 (worked out well since most of the party was late). There is outside seating, and then two floors upstairs, but still pretty cramped. The food was good, though not phenomenal -- we were wondering what all of those long waits were for. Bechelli's two blocks down is about the same food for less wait and money I think.

South Park Cafe

January 2008
Dinner with Lowell

South Park is a very cute few block neighborhood in the middle of SoMa between Bryant & Brannan and Second & Third Streets. The cafe is small and comfortable, and the food very reasonable and yummy. I had a baked goat cheese and frisee salad and a rack of lamb with pesto and macaroni. They have a $34 price fixe for one appetizer, one entre and one dessert.

Drinks with Pipers

Junnoon is an "eclectic modern Indian" restaurant with a great sitting/lounge area in the front, which is perfect for a pitcher of mojito before dinner.
