First opening its doors in spring of 1994, Universal Cafe has survived the test of time and become a Mission District, San Francisco institution.
Lead by executive chef Leslie Carr-Avalos, Universal showcases a menu firmly rooted in classic American cooking influenced by the eclectic bounty of Northern California.
The menu changes often and looks to each season’s changes – that which is new, local and fresh at the markets, as well as each season’s cheeses, meats and fish – for inspiration.
