French Café de la Presse & SF Chinatown


One of my sisters from Kappa Delta, Britney, wanted me to introduce her to authentic French restaurants in the Bay Area, and since I only know of 3 and they’re all in San Francisco, we decided to take a little trip!

I decided to take her to Café de la Presse since it’s right next to Chinatown ^^

 

 

Unfortunately the pictures came out a little dark since we were right next to a window, but here’s the yummy food we had =3

Started off with mimosas and bellinis (like a peach mimosa)

 

I ordered a quiche lorraine and Britney had a croque madame =3 (and mystery friend hidden in the corner had pan bagna)

 

We then went on a nice stroll around Chinatown ^^

The entrance to San Francisco’s Chinatown is right next to Café de la Presse!

 

 

It was decorated with pretty red lanterns =D I think they were probably left over from a festival —  don’t know what Chinese festival there was in the last month though….

 

 

Found some great street art too!

 

 

Cool huh? ^^

 

 

We were pretty full from lunch but had to stop for a free tea tasting. Make sure you stop at one of their 3 locations in SF Chinatown. The tea is great, the people are very knowledgeable and helpful, and they give you tons of extra stuff ^^ I ordered black tea and the guy gave me some chrysanthemum tea to mix in with it for free =D

 

Last but not least, we did “a little” shopping O=]

 

That’s it for now folks!

Stay tuned for Part 2: Berkeley (yeah, it was a hell of a day =] )
