Outside Dining @ Ti Couz, in The Mission District

Ti Couz 3108 16th St, San Francisco, CA 94103 (415) 252-7373


As long as it's not raining, you'll probably find Fred and me dining outside whenever and wherever we can. Because Ti Couz has a no-reservation first-come-first-served policy, it's really down to luck with timing if you want to score one of the few tables outside. If you're not urgently hungry, one of these sidewalk seats are definitely worth waiting a little longer for. A little earthenware bowl of French Brut Cider and a buckwheat crepe ~ Complete (gruyere, ham and egg) + mushrooms for me and two simple cheese ones for Fred. On our first few visits, we tried other varieties, but now we each now what we like the most and we rarely detract from this order.

Bonus material: Sitting outside of Ti Couz you get to watch the vibrant, sometimes eccentric, characters of the Mission District pass you by. If you are lucky, one of them might even stoop down, look you straight in the eye and smile.

    looks like spring is in the air. What a non seguitur from the fondue post.

    What a glorious week it has been. Food always tastes better outdoors... I have yet to be convinced that the Bretagne crepe holds a candle to a wheat crepe when savoury - I have always walked away with heartburn. Granted, you stick some chocolate gelatto and a splash of ganache on that puppy and I'm soaring. Ti Couz makes a mean vinagrette for their pear and gorgonzola greens as well. I live two blocks away so if you have a hankering again, let me know and I'll survey the outdoor landscape for you ;)

    Perfect! A crepe post for Chandeleur, how accurate!

    Do you have chandeleur in England?

    Ced - yes, lets hope this is actually the beginning od summer, depsite what Mr Groundhog says.

    Miro - somehow I can never bring myself to order salad at Ti Couz what with that tempting Complet Crepe always calling my name

    Del - well it was a coincidence, I think Fred forgot it was the date. And I didn't know. We don't have it England. But there is something similar we do have. it's called Shrove Tuesday or Pancake Day. It's not the same date every year because it is a religious day - it always falls the day before Ash Wednesday and Lent. The Brits would fatten themselves up on the things they couldn't eat during the 40 days fo Lent dasting - so they would eat pancakes. This year it falls on Feb 8th - next Tuesday, so maybe we'll have to have crepes again then! Of course, the English have other funny customes associated with itShrove tuesday, including the famous 'Pancake Races' which apparently started as long ago as the 1400's.
