Why We Love It: Savory and sweet. A coffee roasting company with a warm and modern cafe in the heart of San Francisco's Mission District. Faced with a menu that includes Belgian waffles both sweet and savory, it would be easy to overlook the brown rice salad. But though it is humble, the amalgam of chewy brown rice, slivers of shitake mushrooms and cucumber, napa cabbage, tiny broccoli florets, cubes of creamy avocado and crunchy pumpkin seeds, all bathed in a soy-sesame oil dressing spiked with rice wine vinegar, is deeply satisfying. If you’ve made an abstemious New Year’s resolution, this salad will be your new best friend.
