Hayes Valley cafe for pre-theater or happy hour bites. – Being hungry in Hayes Valley often means staying hungry if you've got only a few bucks left until pay day. Instead of just snacking on sweets, stop by this affordable corner cafe, which brings outside inside with a patio-like feel, wide-open windows and Spanish revival-esque neutral colors and arched doorways. The food options--all organic, locally produced and around $5--range from homey comfort food (PB&J or tuna salad) to ethnic-inspired snacks (Mission's Venga Empanadas provides multiple flavors and sizes of the little Latin American dumplings) to home-made pie, while free-trade coffee from De La Paz and beers on tap round out the beverage menu. And even though you may not get the atmosphere of Absinthe or the food of Jardiniere, Mercury definitely deserves a visit from anyone who blew their cash on opera tickets and doesn't have enough left for a fancy dinner, too.
