I recently visited this charming cafe that offers both indoor and outdoor seating options. The outdoor setting was a delightful experience as my friends and I had the chance to catch up, enjoy the nice weather, and soak in the atmosphere. ? The staff was friendly and the coffee was excellent. A perfect spot for a relaxing day out with friends! ?? Follow me for more discoveries like this and don't forget to like my reviews if you found them interesting! Cheers, Arnols Vides ?

A cozy cafe with lots of character, a large variety of baked goods, and friendly staff.If you like very spicy chai tea, this is the spot for you. And when I say spicy, I mean spicy! A really nice kick in addition to the sweetness.My pumpernickel bagel was disappointing because it was a little undercooked so it was dense and sticky, but I definitely got my money's worth of cream cheese - there was way more than enough!I didn't give 5 stars for the atmosphere because the volume of the music was so loud in the front of the cafe.Cheers!

My friend and I recently met up at Simple Pleasures Cafe. It's not my go-to coffee shop, but it's a convenient location for us to chat. The cafe itself has a relaxed atmosphere. Indoors, it's cozy and comfortable, with that classic cafe feel. On a sunny day, the outdoor patio offers a nice change of scenery.They brew a nice cup of coffee. Perfect for a chat with a friend. They also have a selection of beers available, which is a plus if you're meeting up in the evening for a more relaxed catch-up. Simple Pleasures is a nice choice for conversation and a comfortable setting.

Simple Pleasures Café-what a great neighborhood find! 3434 Balboa St. in the Outer Richmond District of San Francisco, just a stone’s throw to the beach. This neighborhood, favorite has a little bit of everything, baked goods, freshly roasted coffee, cold beer, and a fabulous vibe. I treated myself to the deeeeelicious Italian almond cake with a cup of freshly roasted coffee, what a pleasure it was indeed!

1) Its a neighborhood spot. For people who have lived in SF 15+ years. Great, regular crowd. High school and college kids working the front.2) Its not a hoity-toity place. There are others in the Richmond that can serve you a cortado with a heart in the foam. Go there if thats what you seek.If you came in expecting Blue Bottle, and were disappointed, thats on you. Dont be a hater and stress the locals with a bad review. Go find a new hobby

I really enjoyed visiting this cafe. Food was good, staff was kind, but I would recommend checking ahead of time to see if there’s live music when you visit. It’s nice for the vibes but not the best when you’re trying to study.

Great coffee and super laid back vibe. I wish I lived in the neighborhood so this could be the regular spot…I’ll just have to settle for when I’m in the area.Highly recommend the Death Wish if you like espresso and cream. So good. Bagels are tasty, we got the breakfast sandwich (pro tip…add cream cheese to it).

Cosy, good looking place to stay in the middle of the day & drink Chagachino (Large, iced, with oat milk).For me it taste like good rich coffee with regular milk.Verrry good!

Amazing café in San Francisco. I briefly stopped here for a cup of latte, then found myself staying longer to listen to live performance. 10/10 recommend ✨
