This spot in Hayes in easy to miss since it’s on a bit of a random corner of Gough. Don’t miss it. The food is “eastern European” and includes sauerkraut on sandwiches, knishes, and pierogies, but the bagels with lox and cake (Russian honey cake specifically) are where 20th Century really nails it. It’s one of our go-tos in the neighborhood for an easy brunch or lunch or a quick coffee and pastry pick me up.

Jane on Fillmore
Food for the Lululemon crowd, and for us too. Jane on Fillmore finely toes the line between healthy and delicious. If only they were open for dinner.
Judahlicious is a raw vegan spot in the Outer Sunset. Surprisingly, it’s also pretty great.
