    Is that the place that has the Coppola Film Studio upstairs?
    You're thinking of Cafe Macaroni in North Beach.

    Looking forward to chowing down on my first Californian tacos in a couple months. [​IMG] (the Mexican kind) (I mean the Mexican food kind)

    What part of California?

    Tacos (the Mexican food kind) vary a lot depending on where you are.

    Look at the floor and the wall. That's gotta be Westwood or somewhere equally tacky.

    Well the cookies and the ice cream look right, and the cooler is in the right position, but apparently Bi-Rite has wood (or "wood") flooring:

    Looked it up - that is what I was thinking of. Right down the street from City Lights Books.

    Coppola's offices are above Caffe Coppola. Bi-Rite Creamery has awful ice cream. Bi-Rite in general teeters between being worth it because tehy have good raw ingredients, or not being worth it because the people are so pretention, the prices are so high and the butchers seem to chew the meat rather than cut it before it goes into the display case. Never seen such poorly cut meat in my life. Any other questions?

    Just what we need are more places designed to make people fatter.
