Passion Cafe by SF WEEKLY
It ain't easy to get a building permit for a restaurant rooftop patio in San Francisco, but as an integral part of a SOMA redevelopment effort, Passion Cafe has worked a minor land-use miracle. A French cafe-bistro with Old World style — think dark wood paneling, marble counters, and a wall-length cabinet of backlit booze bottles — Passion Cafe features an affordable menu of pastries, tartines, quiches, and even a boeuf bourguignon (no entrée will set you back more than $14). But beyond the Continental culinary offerings in a neighborhood where divey Vietnamese food has historically been the only draw, the rooftop garden is the thing. Climb the stairs to the cluster of tables on the flower-and-shrub-bedecked patio so you can sip $5 glasses of cava in the sun while watching the colorful swirl of city life unfold on the streets below.
