Friendly service, quaint atmosphere and quality food - what more could you ask for? I love that I have been living in Austin for over 15 years and can still stumble upon great, family-owned restaurants that I've never been to before. San Francisco Bakery really fits that description - the staff was friendly and passionate, and their food spoke for itself.

We popped in on a gloomy afternoon, and the cafe was cozy and inviting. We each ordered a lunch combo - soup/sandwich or soup/quiche. Unlike many cafes that have a single quiche of the day, San Francisco Bakery had multiple choices that were hard to choose from! I chose the veggie quiche, but it was hard to pass up the Chicken & Broccoli, Quiche Lorraine, or Spinach and Bacon, all of which came recommended from the staff. The veggie quiche had a nice red pepper kick, which complemented the chowder nicely. It's hard to find great New England clam chowder in Austin, but SF Bakery hit the mark.

For sandwich lovers, you can't go wrong with the Albacore tuna salad, made with lettuce, celery and provolone. It's light and fresh and not overloaded with mayo. Enjoy it atop their parmesan focaccia.

Like many of the famous bakeries in San Francisco, you can purchase fresh breads and pastries. We sampled the raspberry cream cheese Danish, which was light and delicious.

Even though San Francisco Bakery is located in the same shopping center as Alamo Drafthouse, they offer nice outdoor seating in their wraparound corner location. I'm so glad we discovered this gem, and we aren't the only ones according to its high reviews online. If you find yourself in the neighborhood, don't miss their tasty menu and friendly staff.
