Atlas Cafe Restaurant Review

: Down in the low-valley of the eastern Mission, live-work artists, lucky telecommuters and young local moms with high hipster credentials and babies in tow fill up this light and airy room and its adjacent sun-flooded patio. The sofa is conveniently located next to the borrow-and-return, well-stocked magazine rack. Coffee drinks, beer and wine, homemade soups, generous salads, steamed eggs and a variety of sandwiches and pizzas are the fare. Vegetarian choices are well represented on the sandwich board: you'll find roasted yams with feta, cilantro, onion and garlic olive oil on a baguette. Live bluegrass is played on Thursday nights and Americana music on Saturday afternoons. If you must break out the laptop, Atlas permits a few hours of free internet, though electric outlets are scarce and mostly occupied by studious writers composing their next great novel.
