The Last Cafe in San Francisco

“Are we creating a culture,” I asked Ty over coffee at the Sea Biscuit Café, “or are we holding its hand as it dies? Right now I honestly can’t tell.” She shook her head. “That’s a really interesting question.” We usually meet in the Mission, where Ty keeps a small

Inner Richmond Gem: Toy Boat Dessert Cafe

Toy Boat Dessert Café is hands down one of the greatest cafes in San Francisco. Where else in this city can you grab a sandwich, finish it off with a heaping cup of your favorite ice cream all while feeling nostalgic from the hundreds of toys staring at you from every angle?
