Staycation! St Francis Fountain!

After over 2 1/2 years of living in San Francisco, I finally made it to St Francis Fountain. My pal, Sarah (and fellow Vegansaurus writer!) just moved down the street from the restaurant, so we went. First time for both! All I had heard were rave reviews of this place, from vegans and omnivores alike!

Pictured above are the most delicious tofu rancheros I've had in my LIFE! I get what all the fuss is about. I like places that cater to both vegans and non-vegans alike, because then you can bring even the pickiest of eaters (I think my sister would enjoy it! Or my brother-in-law. I need to catalog places I can take them when they visit the city because eating out with them is extremely difficult, as I am not into Chili's as a place that serves 'food'.)

I like how it looked (old-fashioned and kitschy) as well as how it smelled (like a diner, but not gross?). I also appreciate places that have vegan food on the menu that they don't haphazardly throw together. Vegans, you know what I'm talking about, right?

Seated near Sarah and I was a small family - a dad that took his two little kids to either a late lunch or early dinner. He ordered himself and old fashioned sundae shake (you can get vegan versions too!) which I just thought was the cutest. I like it when adults order that kind of stuff, I don't know why. I guess cause it reminds me that we all used to be kids?


  1. I think the only honest way to describe what's on the menu at Chili's is 'food'. You nailed it.

  2. Oh man, this place looks like my bag. You had me at tofu rancheros, but then you threw in the words 'kitschy' and 'diner'. Also, it is always good to have a restaurant in your back pocket to suggest when you are in the company of people who have very different eating habits as you.
