The Halfway Cafe...

One thing we love about the Richmond District is the food. As Pete mentioned before in his "Enough about books, let's talk sandwiches" post, there are a number of great places to get a quality sandwich on Clement Street.

I now have a new favorite...

The Halfway Cafe on 6th Ave, near California (200 6th Ave. to be exact).

The Halfway has been open for about a month now, and while they are testing out their hours, they have assured me they will be open Monday through Friday from 8(ish) in the morning to 4(ish) in the afternoon, 9 to 4 on Saturday, and 10 to 4 on Sundays. . .at least until they can gauge how busy they will be.

The Halfway is run and owned by the rad East Coast transplants and best friends of sixteen years, Megan Boreman and Erin Reffsin. After living and traveling the world, owning two restaurants, and having a combined thirty-plus years in the restaurant industry, Megan and Erin decided to open a sandwich shop and cafe in San Francisco. They were looking at the Financial District until they stumbled on the small shop at the corner of 6th and California. They fell in love with the neighborhood and are serving up great food.

They serve all organic, fresh ingredients and Pierce Bros. Coffee which is 100% Organic, 100% Fair Trade, and Air Roasted for a smooth taste.

Here are some of the highlights on the menu...

The Kamil Shill breakfast burrito is awesome. It's egg, sweet potato hash, black beans, tomato and cheese for $6.50.

The D.R. sandwich: turkey with greens, onion, tomato and a cranberry aioli. . .like all the sandwiches, you get a choice of potato or pasta salad.

Vegetarian? There's the Nancy (hummus, greens, tomato, onion and carrots) or the Killa K (tomato and mozzarella with a pesto aioli).

So check out the Halfway, tell them Green Apple Books sent you, and welcome them to the neighborhood.

I will also say that the cup of coffee I am drinking right now (10:09am 11/16/09) is amazing!

I've been thinking the neighborhood needed a new cafe, thankyou--this proves I wasn't hallucinating this place (which I keep passing while it's closed).

That himalayan place that was there was soooo good. I am still kicking myself for only going there once. As I passed by every day and saw no patrons, I knew that it was only a matter of time. Too bad that place didn't take off because it was so much more unique than the 5th coffee shop (no offense, but you guys don't even have bagles) in a couple blocks.

The whole idea is that it is the "Halfway" Cafe. It is not your typical cafe. Yes, it has coffee but it specializes in Breakfast Burritos & Sandwiches. It is not something the neighborhood has had. There are other places that have bagels.
