Looking for midweek SF place to chill during the day with glass of wine maybe something to eat in or outdoor
I often find myself looking for a casual place to relax read a book and have a glass of wine just looking for suggestions like the idea of outdoors on a nice sunny day. Any thoughts>
thanks for the info thus far i should have said looking for something not too busy more of a neighborhood type place like the place on the corner of fillmore just south of haight across from the thai restaurant or the place on polk and jackson across from lobardis sports or on polk in russian hill the old le robert space or the place at hyde and washington unfortunately i dont recall any of the names just see them in passing Arlequin sounds like it might be closest sorry for not being more specific.
Reverie is a good neighborhood spot in Cole Valley that is very like Arlequin (maybe a little less sceney than Hayes Valley IMHO.) You can have a glass of wine, light food, or just a cup of coffee, indoors or outside in their back garden. It's perfect on a sunny day. The salads are all good - especially the 'ahi tuna and the fennel/walnut/blue cheese.
Also, the Grove on Fillmore is good when the weather isn't so great, though it can get a little crowded....
For the place on Hyde St - do you mean Nook, at Hyde and Jackson? Cute little coffee shop/cafe, also friendly to 'campers', very sweet employees, good brunch and also serves wine and beer....
Cafe du Soleil is, I think, owned by the Bay Bread/La Boulange folks. I love the vibe there. Sunny, relaxed, yummy pastries, nice wines by the glass...
There's no listing for Reverie to link to, I will see if I can add one...
