      Greenhouse Cafe

Vegan? Gluten-free? There are plenty of dishes to choose from, from soups and sandwiches to cookies and donuts. Take advantage of a nice day and post up on the lush back patio. Origin Stories The bread was baked at San Francisco's iconic Boudin Bakery (except for the gluten-free slices). Sandwich eaters choose between sourdough and multigrain. The coffee, certified fair trade and organic, has a variety of homes. Beans in the mellow Equator Blend hail from Brazil, Ethiopia, Sumatra, and Central America. The creamy Tigerwalk Espresso comes from Mexico, Guatemala, and Rwanda. The tea hails from all across the globe. For example, the jasmine petal-laced pouchong green tea is from Fuzhou, China, and the citron of the citron-honey tea is from Geoje, South Korea. The produce is sourced from local and organic farmers whenever possible. The silverware and packaging come from an eco-friendly supplier, so the forks, spoons, cups, lids, and straws are all compostable. Who's in the Kitchen? Husband-and-wife team Sam and Queenia cofounded Greenhouse Cafe because they love coffee, community, and creativity. The duo may own the joint, but they can often be found behind the counter. Queenia, in fact, is the artist behind many of a latte's foam picture. Some items on the menu are even named after their children, Jeanie and Chuckie.

In 2010, she and her sons, TJ and Mark, opened Lou’s Cafe. One of them is always behind the counter, crafting inventive, satisfying sandwiches and topping them with Lou’s Special Sauce, a housemade garlic-and-herb aioli. From the Press “This family run cafe in San Francisco's Richmond District is exactly what a good sandwich shop should be - incredibly welcoming, with fresh, filling sandwiches at honest prices.” — SFGate “The fixings are primo, to be sure, but its Lou’s sauces and breads that separate them from the San Francisco sandwich pack.” — The Daily Meal “We're partial to the LLB Special on Dutch Crunch, but we think the breakfast sandwich is the most rave-worthy item here.” — SF Weekly Inside Tips Because seating is sparse, most customers take their orders to go. Don’t be daunted by a long line—it moves pretty quickly. To minimize your wait, download GoPago to order from your phone. When you get to Lou’s, skip the line and go straight to the GoPago pickup spot. Vocab Lesson Dutch crunch: also called “tiger bread,” this roll features a mottled exterior that hides a soft, chewy center. Bakers use sesame oil to lend it a distinct aroma, and paint the top with rice paste before baking it to create a cracked appearance and salty-sweet flavor.

      Mel's Drive In

      San Francisco (2416.7 mi)
      In 1947, owners Mel Weiss and Harold Dobbs assembled a staff of 14 carhops to serve passing motorists at the first Mel's Drive-In. For the next two decades, customers partial to automobile dining flocked to the chain’s 11 California locations, eager to wash down grass-fed half-pound burgers with thick milk shakes. As fast-food outlets outpaced the drive-in's once-speedy service, its popularity declined, and it was eventually scheduled for demolition. The building got a temporary reprieve, however, when filmmaker George Lucas decided to use the drive-in's original location on Lombard Street as the colorful backdrop for his film American Graffiti. As bulldozers destroyed the last remnants of the historic drive-in, American Graffiti opened in theaters. A decade later, though, Mel's son Steven reopened Mel's Drive-In in an attempt to carry on his father's dream. Steven restored the drive-in's multiple locations to mirror their original motif by stocking each with midcentury must-haves such as illuminated marquees, jukeboxes, and Elvis-themed WiFi passwords. The drive-in’s menu, meanwhile, balances period-appropriate fare, such as hot dogs and burgers, with healthy options, such as the Haven’s Famous vegetarian sandwich, two slices of nine-grain bread topped with avocado, sprouts, and tomatoes.

      Internos Wine Cafe

      San Francisco (2416.7 mi)
      Internos is named for the Latin word that means “between ourselves.” The wine cafe is designed to be a cozy, unintimidating spot where guests can gather, which is not surprising for a place that describes its varietals with irreverent adjectives like “sexy” and “funky”. Around knotted wood tables, companions gather to navigate a wine list populated with glasses and bottles of varietals culled both internationally and locally—the rotating selection has included everything from a robust Portuguese colheita to a crisp Santa Rita Hills chardonnay. Despite the small environs, the focus is larger than wine. Guests can also sip on a modest collection of beers diversified by such selections as Hitachino Nest White Ale from Japan and the New Orleans Dixie Lager. Not to be out traveled by the spirits, the food menu lists the national origin of its charcuterie and artisanal cheeses. Those looking to dig into something a bit more substantial can order one of five bruschetta or flatbreads topped with prosciutto and roasted garlic.

      Tal-Y-Tara Tea and Polo Shoppe

      San Francisco (2418.4 mi)
      More than 5,000 miles separate San Francisco from England's sprawling countryside. But stroll down California Street in the city's Richmond district and this distance disappears—all because of an unassuming tea and equestrian shop named Tal-y-Tara, a Gaelic phrase that means "by the strength of the King." Its interior certainly seems fit for royalty. Antique wooden shelves and tables fill the space, displaying riding boots and other equestrian supplies alongside mannequins adorned in hats, jackets, and other sporting apparel. Beyond the leather saddles and riding crops lies a tearoom. In this space, aromas from more than 50 teas dance in the air, telling tales of classic flavors such as Earl Grey and playful creations such as Bingo Bango Mango. Their scents emanate from freshly brewed kettles, which arrive at antique tables dressed in patterned cozies. Next to the kettles sits an assortment of classic teatime eats: homemade scones with Devonshire cream and motorloaf sandwiches, which are as quintessentially English as the tiny British flag Winston Churchill always kept under his hat. Tal-y-Tara's motorloaf recipe—passed down through the owner's family—nestles raisins and walnuts into semi-sweet dark bread. Slices bookend a variety of sandwich fillings, such as cream cheese and cucumber or egg salad with capers. The tea, food, and antique decor create the ideal atmosphere for lengthy conversations with friends or escapes into a good book. And though visitors will ultimately have to leave, the shop sells teapots, cozies and other whimsical merchandise that can send a bit of Britain home.

      Cocola Bakery

      San Francisco (2418.9 mi)
      In the days before baguettes were popularized as day-old jousting batons, the dignified breadform was utilized as a sandwich vessel.

      The demand for Ginger Springs Day Spa's holistically minded services has sparked a recent expansion resulting in a couple’s massage room and private relaxation area. Wielding botanical-laden European skincare products from Pevonia Botanica and Jan Marini, aestheticians pamper countenances with vitamin-rich ingredients and supplement most sessions with extras such as aromatherapy, a heated neck cozy, or herbal tea. Japanese wall hangings, simple white candles and vases, and live bamboo plants reflect an Asian influence that resurfaces in shiatsu, Eastern acupressure treatments, and the staff's off-hours assembly of a Great Wall of massage tables.

      Don't let the lipstick red underwear distract you. Nor should you let the photos of lovely people wearing little else but said underwear sway you from your goal. The mission at Hot Cookie is to get your mitts on the cookies––just-baked, fresh-from-the-oven cookies. Shoppers can take home a dozen of the morsels or bring home a large cookie cake, which can be personalized with an iced message or Twitter handle. Groupon Celebrates Pride Month Over the last 50 years, the gay-rights movement in America has overcome tremendous obstacles to become a powerful voice for inclusion and diversity. Even as it has grown, the movement—like Groupon—is local at heart, and we applaud the commitment to real change that improves everyday lives. At Groupon, we are happy to add our voices to those celebrating PRIDE, their achievements as a social movement and a continued march to equality for the LGBT community. Plus, we love a chance to dig that rainbow wig out of storage. This month—and throughout the year—we salute our merchants and customers who support PRIDE and all efforts that promote dignity, respect, and equal opportunity. We're highlighting these merchants' deals with a special badge to show Groupon's pride in working with people who share our values.
