If you want to support a great local, independent cafe, this is the place. Centrally located right next to the Rafael Theater. A perfect place to meet up with friend(s).

Love the fatoush salad. Very reasonably priced. A great place for coffee, tea, deserts, and people watching. It's right next door to the Rafael Theatre, so you can get a quick bite before or after the movie.

Centrally located in downtown San Rafael. Brick walls give it an old world feeling. Always interesting people, writers & readers. Salad, sandwiches, soups & middle eastern selections. Regularly changing artwork in the walls.
