We were wanting convenience and ventured into this lunch cafe where you order at the counter and then the food is brought to you table. The food was worth it; we had a sandwich and a salad and both were tasty and filling as well as worth the expense. There are two main environments, the inside cafe and the outdoor... More

Stopped here to meet a friend and had a nice salad for lunch. A tad pricey but the food was great. Nice wine shop connected and I would get my glass of wine there and bring it over

We really enjoyed the feel of this cafe. The food was great - coffee was excellent and the seating options topped it all off nicely with options to sit inside, out front or in the quaint patio in the back. Definitely will return.

Extensive wine selection. Knowledgeable staff. I told them about a wine I just had at a local restaurant and they told me what was similar to it in my price range.

You can tell that this place is very popular- lots of people coming and going. Yet, for all the bustle it is very low key and relaxing, with lots of seating, including an outdoor garden, where i spent a lovely leisurely afternoon. You forget you're in a bustling city. I had a tuna sandwich and lemonade, both of which were... More

Went for a wine tasting event for the "beaujolais bash" which was pretty crowded and all about a wine I don't really like, sorry Beaujolais. The place itself is really nice with convenient back patio seating. I split a few bottles with a group of friends and didn't feel rushed to clear out, which I really appreciated. Would go back...

The fried eggs cooked the way you like them, the funny american toasted bread, flattened sausage, pickled sweet onion, the delicious coffee. This was the best meal we had in the whole trip. The Service staff were friendly and welcoming and lovely atmosphere. We ate outside in the garden, it was a lovely sunny day, restful, relaxing, great food. Well... More

Lovely spot for a cup of coffee, glass of wine, or a simple meal. Beautiful garden out back for outdoor dining, hip spot indoors, super-popular. An oasis of affordability in pricey Hayes Valley. Always dependable.

Restaurants in the trendy Hayes Valley appear to grow more expensive by the month, but Arlequin Cafe maintains its unique status as a restaurant with high quality offerings at modest prices. The number of hot entrees each day changes and is never more than half a dozen--and they also offer soup, salads, and sandwiches. But what makes this a go-to... More

Staying in Hayes Valley

Neighbourhood Profile
Hayes Valley
Chock full of designer boutiques, art galleries, funky shoe stores, and great restaurants, it’s hard to imagine Hayes Valley once languished in the shadow of a major freeway. Its removal allowed for the creation of an attractive boulevard on Octavia Street with a community park at its center and dozens of trendy businesses to satisfy visitors looking for a stylish respite.
