Trendy and delicious
Created by our very own lesbian celebrity chef, Elizabeth Faulkner, Citizen Cake is a wonderful restaurant. Perched between the trendy boutiques of Hayes Valley and Davies Symphony Hall and the Civic Center, it's the perfect place to go for lunch before shopping or a late dinner after the symphony. The sunday brunch is renowned, and it is right next door to MAC (Modern Appealing Clothing), one of the best boutiques in the city, so make make Citizen Cake a keystone to an afternoon or evening out on the town. The Citizen Cake cafe next door serves up yummy cakes and cupcakes and hand made coffee drinks.

      good place at a good location
      I recently was made aware of this by a good friend where we met for coffee one morning. It's a combination of a restaurant and coffee house. I've heard good things about the restaurant, but have not tried it myself yet. It's in an excellent location in Hayes Valley (where I used to live). Very close to the opera house ... I, too have heard that it's either closing or relocating sometime in the near future which is unfortunate, if true.

      looks very promising
      Had coffee there with a friend after he'd had coffee there with a friend a few days before. Good experience. The restaurant section looks very promising and seems to have an inviting menu. Easy to get to by MUNI or car, but do not recommend air balloons.

      Terrific corner location
      I often stop at the Citizen Cake Cafe right next door to the restaurant for coffee and delicious cupcake on my way to work. (Probably should be stopping at the gym instead.) This food here is solid, but the location in Hayes Valley and to the nightlife corridor is what makes this place a must stop.

      Good for after the ballet/opera
      I have often stopped here (or in their little attached cafe) for a great dessert after a show. It's within walking distance of the opera house (ballet & opera) and the symphony (where I saw Kathy Griffin). It's great for dessert and the dinner's pretty good too. Only real complaint is that it's a bit small so always seems crowded. I heard recently that they would be closing later this year, sad if it's true, so get it while you can.
