Stacie and I both discovered Velo Rouge Cafe around the same time and I cannot figure out why we did not find this neat little corner cafe sooner. Stop off here for a meal or snack on your way to the attractions in Golden Gate Park. If you don’t want to deal with the crowds at the cafeteria at the California Academy of Sciences, this is a great stop-off or a spot to pick up food-to-go to take to the Academy or have a picnic in the park.
Breakfast is served till 4:30 pm and they have pretty much anything you could want – banana nut pancakes, eggs and sides, oatmeal, etc. I see a brunch here in our future and then a walk/bike ride with the kiddos in the park. The lunch and dinner menu is full of cafe basics with many kid friendly options available. We are always on the search for after school snack places to kill some time and they have banana bread, muffins and games for the kids to keep themselves entertained with.
Stop by on Friday and Saturday evenings when the cafe is open till 10 pm for dinner and live music. A funky little cafe with a great vibe – check it out for yourself.
