La Boulange CLOSED 5800 Nave Dr., in Hamilton Marketplace, (415) 382-8594.
Featuring a large open room filled with rustic wood tables, this bakery cafe offers counter service and an expansive and delicious menu of breakfast and lunch items. You can start the day with housemade granola with yogurt honey and fresh fruit, brioche French toast, or a choose-your-own-ingredients scramble. Salads and sandwiches—including some tempting open-face versions—make up the lunch menu. I enjoyed the Boulange Club--a three-slice stack of toasted pain de mie layered with turkey, bacon, avocado, tomato, lettuce, and aioli. The house soups are very good, so you might want to consider the half sandwich/cup of soup special.
