Where I Go Out

At My Venues

Belgian-style wafel
$$, Café, Coffee Shop, Breakfast, Mid Market
"This waffle is so simple, it's amazing how much flavor it has. They sprinkle sugar onto it as it cooks, and the sugar caramelizes into a sweet crust. When they hand it to you warm and wrapped in a coffee filter, the first bite is amazing. It's the perfect foil to a drip coffee or a gibraltar, and best enjoyed sitting at the counter catching up on emails or the day's news. My crew at the market is addicted to them."

"The best coffee roasters in the country run a cafe on the roof, in the sculpture garden at the SFMOMA—a stunning setting. Ask for a gibraltar, which has more milk than a macchiato and less than a cappucino—just the right amount. Make sure to get pastry chef Caitlin Freeman's gingerbread, too."
