Billing itself as a “casual stand-up food bar,” Café Fanny serves coffee, breakfast, and lunch. Customers come here for pressed sandwiches, salads, and Parisian cafe fare. The owners are Alice Waters devotees, so it follows that much of food is sourced locally. Acme breads travel the shortest distance — the bakery is right next-door. The cafe seats about twenty people, and it can get crowded, so arrive early.
Customers come here for pressed sandwiches, salads, and Parisian cafe fare. Some stand at the zinc bar, tucking into bathtub-sized cafés au lait and bowls of granola. Others sit outside with a glass of wine, ignoring the San Pablo Avenue traffic in favor of the sun filtering through the trees and the baskets of bread in the window of the Acme Bakery next door.
