I went on a stroll this morning to one of my favorite cafes near my apartment. I didn’t know it was there for the longest time, and it’s definitely a little hidden gem in the city.
Heartbaker, aside from having a perfect and adorable name, has a great selection of teas (from T-We Tea, who I recently discovered, and loved, at Renegade SF!), coffees, and sweet treats in the mornings.
Today I had the T-We Tea ‘Chai This’ with elderflowers in the blend (delish!) and a chocolate ricotta turnover which was the perfect combo of chocolate, crispy bread, and cheese. Who wouldn’t love that?
On the weekends they have brunch and they have daily lunch and dinner options.
The ambiance is wonderful and the staff is super friendly. It’s low-key and comfortable. Perfect to meet up with friends or have a slow, quiet morning to yourself (with some people watching, my personal favorite!).
I love their hilarious photos on the walls with food masks. So creative and the whole place feels very genuine.
Check it out yourself! Heartbaker can be found at 1408 Clement St. in the Inner Richmond, SF.
