There is a lot to like about this place. Excellent sandwiches (all under $7), a beautiful outdoor patio, live music Thursday thru Saturday nights, and all the lovely tattooed/pierced/bicycle riding hipsters you can stomach. An added bonus is that the café subscribes to a bunch of good magazines and has them on display for you to read. Atlas is also the place where a beautiful Brazilian woman once conned me into writing a 5 page paper for her about Allen Ginsburg’s Howl. Hey don’t laugh asshole! I’m not usually a chump like that, but when she invited me back to her place to help her study, I thought she meant 'œhelp her study'. You would’ve done the same thing'aw fuck off, I don’t have to explain myself to you.

Broke-Ass Stuart - Editor In Cheap

I've been called "an Underground legend": SF Chronicle , "an SF cult hero": SF Bay Guardian, and "the chief of cheap": Time Out New York, but to those familiar with my work, I'm just "that douchebag who writes books about cheap stuff and drinks a lot".

    Atlas was Holly and my favourite breakfast place when we first came to SF in 2003
