Fill Up at Fillmore Street Cafe

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

The Fillmore Street Cafe is probably the closest and cheapest place for decent food to my house – especially on those days when you are so hungover you don’t think you could make it any further. Luckily, two blocks is doable, even if you think you might die on the way there.

The guys working there are awesome, from Ethiopia. I normally stop in here for a coffee on my way to work and sometimes a bagel. They have fresh bagels (ranging from $2.50-$4)and put a whole bunch of different toppings on ’em: from peanut butter and jelly, to hummus and veggies (with olives!), to egg, bacon and avo. When I actually am hungover, I will come in and get a sandwich. The sandwiches are HUGE, and can definitely feed two broke asses. Last time I shared my turkey and provolone one with my roommate, and we were both stuffed. They cost around $6-$8 bucks and come with a side. I like the potato salad.

The coffee is fresh and strong everyday. Sometimes, I just come in to drink a coffee and sit on the outside patio and watch the world go by. There are always some interesting characters in my hood. The guys who work there usually have a card game going on inside,and sometimes they will even offer you their traditional food if they happen to be making it. They like to sit there and watch sports on TV during the weekends. And…I almost forgot the best part about the Fillmore Street Cafe, the have about five beers on tap for $2.75! Great deal when you are getting off the bus after work and are in need of a cold one…
