L'acajou Bakery & Cafe

One whiff from blocks away and you'll say, "Oui!" L'acajou Bakery and Cafe is no ordinary patisserie, our artisanal menu is eco-friendly and made with fresh, local ingredients. Though many stop in bright and early for our melt-in-your-mouth morning cinnamon buns and Ritual french-press coffee, L'acajou Bakery offers something for every craving, any time of day.

For lunch, you'll quickly discover we are no ordinary sandwich shop. Choose from one of our paninis or signature sandwiches like the super-popular Moroccan lamb -- along with fresh salads and daily soup. Vegan? No problem. Lunch to go? Ditto. But wait, there's more! Come by for Happy Hour! From 4-6pm weekdays, we're serving up half-priced beer and pastries before we bid you "au revoir" -- until tomorrow.

This place is addictive. They're always coming up with a new kind of scone, which I love, but my favorite thing is the lamb sandwich. It should be featured on that show "The best thing I ever ate! -- Paul D.


It seems like every bakery in San Francisco claims they're the best but all the others are wrong. This place is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. -- Katy C.


L'acajou Cafe is the hidden gem of SOMA! The menu isn't huge but there are always vegan dishes - even vegan muffins which are out of this world. The salads ROCK, they have a great way with flavors here. -- Rashmi M.


My office orders from L'acajou's catering menu for birthday breakfasts and working lunches with clients. The staff here are really great and the food is always fresh. It usually disappears fast. Can't wait for the next birthday: mine! -- Ari J.


Grab a variety of baked goods for your co-workers. Nothing says, "I'm a good employee" like a salted dark chocolate with peanut butter pretzel cookie. -- Justin M.
