Bordeaux are swoon-worthy), you can order savory tarts, sandwiches,
and salads to go or to eat at one of the coveted outdoor tables.

Chinese bakeries
Chinese bakeries, which sell savory as well as sweet items, abound in
Chinatown, in the Sunset District on Irving Street, and in the Richmond
District on Clement Street. For snacking on the premises or on the go,
delicious baked or steamed pork buns (baked buns are golden brown,
and steamed buns are white) are ideal. They’re also a big hit with kids. If
you want something on the sweet side, custard tarts and sesame-seed-
covered balls of rice surrounding a bit of sweet bean paste are standard
issue. Look also for bo lo bow, slightly puffy and sweet bread with a
crust that resembles the outside of a pineapple, or chung yow bow,
green-onion bread. You may have to point to whatever looks appetizing,
because the folks behind the counter don’t necessarily speak English.

Coffee and tea, if you please
Places to sit and sip are as prevalent as pigeons in this caffeine-crazed
piece of paradise. Coffeehouses — and I’m not even including the mega-
chains — nestle in every neighborhood, seemingly on every block. I
don’t think drinking coffee as a lifestyle was invented in North Beach,
but based on sheer numbers, it could have been. Regulars have their
favorite blends and favorite tables, but no one will argue against hanging
out at Mario’s Bohemian Cigar Store on the corner of Columbus Avenue
and Union Street (% 415-362-0536). Along with excellent coffee
(Graffeo), you can graze on a mouth-watering chicken parmigiana on
focaccia. Caffe Trieste, Vallejo and Grant streets (% 415-982-2605; www.
caffetrieste.com), is a mob scene on Saturday afternoon, when the
owners and friends take turns singing at the microphone. Coffee is
served daily with or without opera. The roasting apparatus at Caffe
Roma, 526 Columbus Ave. (% 415-296-7942), sits up front near the door.
If you ask, and the staff members aren’t busy making the perfect cappuc-
cino, you could learn about the life cycle of the coffee bean.

Although that Seattle-based coffee Goliath continues to snap up real
estate in a quest to make everyone drink frappuccinos, we have our own
local chain to kick around. Actually, caffeine aficionados worship Peet’s
Coffee & Tea. If you love really strong coffee, it’s worth dropping by one
of the many stores. The one closest to Union Square is in the Financial
District at 22 Battery St., at Bush Street (% 415-981-4550; www.peets.
com). You can also try the shop on Chestnut Street between Steiner and
Pierce streets in the Marina (% 415-931-8302) or the one in the Ferry
Building (% 415-593-3831). They’re all open daily. In Hayes Valley, the
community kaffeeklatsch takes place on the pavement in front of a
custom furniture workshop at 30 Linden St., an alley off Gough Street.
Look for the seemingly makeshift bar of the Blue Bottle Coffee Co., pro-
genitor of the Blue Bottle Cafe (see the next section). You can eavesdrop
or make new friends while waiting in line for a good strong cup.

Self-described coffee snobs have little choice but to drop by Ritual Coffee
Roasters, 1026 Valencia St. in the Mission (% 415-641-1024). The beans
come from Portland, Oregon’s Stumptown Coffee. The roomy storefront
has a glass case filled with treats, free wireless, and long hours (open:
until 11 p.m. Mon–Sat, until 9 p.m. Sun).

The peaceful Imperial Tea Court, in the Ferry Building on the
Embarcadero (% 415-544-9830), is a must stop in which to rest your feet
and take stock of your life — or maybe just the last half-hour — over a
pot of exotic leaves and blossoms that would make Celestial Seasonings
think twice. This is the place to sample the highest-quality teas as they
were meant to be brewed, and the staff is happy to show you how it’s
done. Open weekdays 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Saturday 9 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.,
Sunday 10:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Breakfast of champions
Touring is hard work; you need a good breakfast. Around Union Square,
you can find lots of restaurants serving in the morning, including the
Grand Cafe (% 415-292-0101) on Geary next to the Hotel Monaco,
open daily; and Dottie’s True Blue Café, 522 Jones St., between Geary
Boulevard and O’Farrell Street (% 415-885-2767). Dottie’s is my favorite
after Brenda’s (see listing this chapter). Open Wednesday through
Monday only, it’s a tiny diner that offers daily specials as well as the
basics — eggs, pancakes, sausage — all prepared with great flair. The
baked goods are so delicious you may want to purchase some to go.
Expect to wait in line on the weekends. When the lines at Dottie’s and
Brenda’s appear too daunting, just walk over to Café Mason, 320 Mason
St. between Geary and O’Farrell streets (% 415-544-0320), for all kinds
of fruit-enhanced pancakes, eggs any way, or maybe yogurt and fresh
fruit. Prices are reasonable for Union Square, and the food’s fine. Across
from the Chinatown gate is Café de la Presse, 352 Grant Ave. (% 415-
398-2680), very European in feel, with excellent lattes, croissants, newspa-
pers, and lots of windows. Lines here move faster than you might think.

Bechelli’s, in the Marina/Cow Hollow neighborhood at 2346 Chestnut St.,
between Divisadero and Scott streets (% 415-346-1801), serves a sub-
stantial breakfast until 3 p.m. during the week, and until 4 p.m. Saturday
and Sunday. To my mind, the booths, scruffy leatherette chairs, and
beat-up, horseshoe-shaped wooden counter add to the charm of this
neighborhood institution, but more important, the breakfast menu is
nearly as huge as the portions. Buttermilk pancakes, French toast, home-
made corned beef hash, and lots of omelets could potentially hold you
for a good part of the day. Kids often enjoy bellying up to the counter,
and the place has a very relaxed, family-friendly atmosphere. No reser-
vations; credit cards are accepted.

Hidden on an alleyway very near the Westfield Centre on Market and
Fifth is the hippest spot in town for coffee and a bite, as evidenced by
the crowd there on an otherwise deserted Sunday morning. Blue Bottle
Cafe, on the corner of Mint and Jessie streets, between Market and
