New cafe! As Quoted

Sacramento St. has a great new cafe to check out!

As Quoted is a new Sacramento St. ‘farm to table’ cafe recently opened in the spring of 2016.   It has quickly become a haven for people who want ‘farm to table’, allergy sensitive, healthy menu options plus a great stop for a coffee, or a bite to eat.  Their approach to aesthetics, sourcing and preparation makes this little gem stand out.

Amongst their specialties: Tumeric latte, Rooibos chai latte,  gluten -free homemade muffins and bread and locally sourced Andytown Coffee Roasters plus a menu of select salads, open faced (gluten free) sandwiches and bone broth soup.

  • Featuring locally sourced food and coffee.
  • Locally owned and operated by sisters Andie and Kara Yamagami.
  • The Eat as Quoted website

The historic Presidio Carnegie public library and a small independent theater, The Vogue add to the neighborhood charm. Locally owned businesses are intermingled with residential buildings creating a unique SF experience. Great for brunch, lunch and dinner. One mile from the Fillmore District, The Presidio and Highway 1. Bus lines 1,2,3,43.
