Spotted SF / SOMA / Darwin Cafe


San Francisco—I’m back! And ready to head back to work today and pop into my new favorite lunch spot. My friend introduced me to this gem tucked along a side street near South Park. The menu is posted daily on their web site and written on a sheet of craft paper when you walk in. The line is ridiculous at lunch time, but so worth the wait—especially for their kale, lemon, garlic, parmesan and prosciutto salad. So good!! It’s actually been on the menu for some time and I sure hope it doesn’t go away anytime soon. But even so, everything else is a hit and they’re sandwiches and baguettes sell out. Darwin is open for dinner, too. And if you opt for a quiet space to meet up with a friend for an early evening of wine and some cheese, this is the perfect spot.
