  • One of my favorite galleries in the city, always has interesting exhibits in what's seems to be a constantly evolving space. This gallery is always peaceful and feels very personal to all who visit. Come if not just for the great cafe alone!
  • Lovely place, great art and choice of art books, food, drink and service Fantastic. We went twice in one day it was that good 😊
  • Free entry, cozy gift shop with lots of beautiful art books and postcards, friendly staff, luminous gallery with interesting exhibits
  • Did you come for the cafe? Enter via the bookshop - that in itself adds pleasure to the experience. The heavy door - I think it must be made of metal - that leads in from the street is set in a recess so that the door itself is a right angles to the street. And it has a porthole in the door. Already I feel like this is going to be a good place. And big, big windows that stretch floor to ceiling. So contemporary - so privileged - so much better than drudge. OK, you're in. Now you have a bookshop that sells 'thoughtful' - art books, criticism books, photography books. (Also sells notebooks and cards and little gifts) and there's an air of 'San Francisco easy' - nothing rushed. Then the gallery - new exhibitions regularly - that spread over the ground floor and upstairs - and usually I don't go for them much. They often feel 'Give me fifty planks of wood and a ten pots of paint and some paper and I could do that.' But sometimes there's something. And onwards to the cafe - I love the cafe. Just the right balance between easy and substantial - more than a cafe with cakes - whole meals - inventive - good regular choices - nice tables - those big windows that look out onto the City Art Centre opposite. Nice staff. A place to go back to again - become a somewhat regular. Love it.
  • Great gallery with a fantastic cafe and shop
