Myth Cafe, SF report w/ pics: It's good w/ menu typed up!

  • 4

I'm happy to say this place is Good! I wish I worked in SF because I would be eating here all the time.
Others report here:

My review is only for the bag lunch since I was in a hurry, but if I'm ever in the area M-F during lunch time I would so be eating here! Omg, the Very Adult Mac & Cheese looked good when I saw it on someone's table-enough for 2 ppl!

The wait is kinda long during noon, so I'd recommend going Early. They only have 1 register/cashier and he was working hella hard. My bag lunch was pretty cheap at $6.46 and since it's pre-bagged all he had to do was pull one out, take my credit card, have me sign it, and I was out of there.

They have glass cases in the front with desserts, plus an ice-cream case.

My lunch had: 1/2 a turkey/ham sandwich-lots of meat in it, mustard, lettuce. 1 small Bartlett pear, 1 small cup of Greek Salad-tiny bit of cheese, artichoke hearts, romaine lettuce, olives, and a tiny thing of dressing. Also a heritage cookie-more cakey with carrots, walnuts, and raisins. All were very good.

Bathrooms available around past the kitchen area, down a dark hallway. Women's had 3 stalls.

I'm listing the Myth Cafe menu here because it's not online, don't know if it's the same always, I guess the bag lunch changes often.
