This cozy cafe is a favorite hang out for dancers from the nearby San Francisco Ballet as well as other taut and toned types from the gym across the street. The food reflects a concern for all things healthy with such offerings as low-fat smoothies that are light on calories but heavy on fresh fruit and juices. You can also find sub sandwiches with healthy fillings of turkey, veggies, and other calorie conscious choices to be enjoyed with coffee, tea or a bottled water. The tiny space has only a few seats at the counter in a nondescript setting, but offers table seating on the sidewalk, which can be a treat on sunny days.
Cafe Corbas is one of the best coffee hangout's in the city. Friendly staff and just good food make this place fun place to be in Hayes Valley. Sit outside during warmer months or belly up to the counter (which I prefer for the lively conversation going on between staff and patrons).
As a coffee obsessive, I can say that Corbas rates as the most consistent and best maker of Espressos, and Lattes that I've found in SF. There are a number of cafes that serve Mr Espresso coffee, but without fail, the people at Corbas pay the necessary attention to every shot to make each drink perfectly.
