Macrina Cafe and Bakery
SF Chowhound inadvertently found himself in this lovely Belltown spot this past Sunday. The line was pretty serious but people were patiently waiting in anticipation. I soon found myself at the counter, drinking an earthy Americano, and savoring a bracing fruit salad with a clever ginger garnish atop.
After much agonizing I opted for the Market Special, which was a crepe filled with basil, ricotta, fresh corn and Tiger Shrimp. I don't even like crepes but this was utterly delicious - super fresh and just plain tasty. Adorning the plate was a nice side of salad greens, what appeared to be fingerling potatoes and some crusts of homemade bread.
Service was excellent and attentive. I only wish we had a Macrina here in SF - truly good. Enjoy, my Pac NW friends.
