Meet the Best Bacon Cheeseburger on Divis at KK Cafe

Bacon. Bacon. Bacon. CHEESEBURGER!

ATTENTION VEGANS/VEGETARIANS!!  This post is NOT for you.  Why?  Because I will be expounding upon the delicious, tantalizingly meaty goodness of the bacon at KK Cafe, specifically as it applies to a beefy, 1/2 pound burger, and the last thing I want you to do is throw up the kale and lentils you had for dinner.

So, meat-eaters, how have I been living in the Lower Haight for, like, two years now and no one’s ever taken me to KK Cafe?  Is it because from the outside, it just looks like an unassuming, ten-on-every-block coffee house?  Or is it because I already stuff my face enough as it is and my loved ones were protecting me from myself?  Whatever the case is, it doesn’t matter now.  KK Cafe is in my life to stay.

Quite simply, the bacon cheeseburger I had at KK was de-LISH.  I’ve had the “grass-fed hamburger with pickled onions” at Nopa (on someone else’s dime, duh), and let me tell you, for half the price (under $7, specifically),  at KK you’ll get better service, a bigger, tastier burger (a 1/2 pound or more, guaranteed), and a hefty helping of crisp, filling steak fries.  Oh, and you probably won’t be surrounded by snobs.

Now, what really ties the whole experience together is the bacon on the burger.  No one likes limp, chewy bacon.  That’s pretty much like eating the stomach right off of Babe.  But when bacon is expertly cooked, slightly crunchy, yet still juicy — pure magic.  And the folks at KK Cafe have perfected the art of bacon-cooking, for realz.  I bet that’s why the Burger Joint that used to be on the corner of Haight & Pierce closed down.  That and Burger Joint didn’t have crazy delicious PEANUT MILK SMOOTHIES.

When Christy announced she was leaving her family's Southern California home and moving to San Francisco, her mom said, "Have fun in that den of sin." This is the only (however sarcastic) advice Christy has ever taken from her mom, who also told her to join eharmony.com and cover her eyes during sex scenes in movies. Christy puts her creative writing degree to good use by locating the typos on Chinese food menus and spends most of her time challenging friends to all-you-can-eat contests and trying to get that one bartender at Zeitgeist to smile.
