San Francisco: Caffe Bianco; restaurant review

San Francisco

Caffe Bianco  39 Sutter St./Montgomery St., Financial District, (415) 421-2091.  M-F 6am-6pm. 

Located on the ground floor of the 1923 Chancery Building, it’s unlikely you’ll find this pleasant spot unless you are looking for it.  It is just a block from BART, but on a section of street that is a sunless concrete throughway.  But once inside, I was pleased with the atmospheric high ceilings, round marble tables, and two walls of windows letting in plenty of light and sustaining a tall plant hugging them in the corner. 

Place your order at the counter, then select a seat and it will be delivered to you when ready.  Breakfast includes a fluffy scrambled egg sandwich, oatmeal, pastries, and my choice--bagels with cream cheese (lox is an option).  Lunch brings on a popular three-salad sampler plate (the kale is said to be very good), hot items that include lasagna, and a variety of sandwiches--havarti and avocado sounds good, and next time I plan to try the reputedly exceptional Proscuitto di Parma I with pesto, roasted peppers, tomato, and fresh mozzarella.  Everything is housemade, orange juice is fresh squeezed, and gluten-free bread is available.  Upstairs seating is a balcony, with some tables that overlook the activity downstairs.
