Mission Beach Cafe, San Francisco, CA

Mission Beach Cafe Restaurant Review

: Mission Beach Café might be the quintessential San Francisco neighborhood restaurant. It’s warm and small, with minimalist-yet-chic furnishings. Seasonally progressive fare balances richness with bright flavors. Artichoke soup with pickled onion and truffle oil, for instance, tastes like springtime. Free-form rabbit potpie has a light-as-air crust from pastry chef Alan Carter. At brunch, fluffy ricotta pancakes get a dose of tartness from a huckleberry-blueberry compote, while crisp tortilla strips and spicy Prather Ranch pulled pork elevate the typical huevos rancheros. Finally, there's one thing that really makes Mission Beach Café seem homey: Carter's selection of house-made pies and cakes for dessert. Peach pie is pure summertime, while chocolate pecan pie will send just about anyone over the edge --- in a good way --- leaving them ready to call this restaurant their own, no matter where they live.
