Kid-centric, counter-service eatery doling out sandwiches, pizzas & casual French plates.- Google
"The food was pretty good - we had eggs and pancakes and other breakfast fare."
"Burger and fries excellent, really anything they do with bread is quite tasty."

I have been at Rigolo 3 times since I arrived to SF a year ago. 2 of those times I had a negative experience there. On one occasion, I ordered a soy cappuccino with my breakfast and was given a regular milk cappuccino. When I kindly informed the 2 ladies serving the tables, they got defensive and even had the nerve to doubt what I was stating. One of them said: I saw him (the cappuccino barista) putting soy milk". Lady, If a customer that is lactose intolerant is telling you it isn't soy milk please believe her. I can understand making a mistake but I don't understand servers rudeness doubting a customer's word. The third time I visited Rigolo, I ordered a smoked salmon breakfast and it was served without a salad, it came with potatoes instead. I saw the same plate ordered by a neighboring patron and asked if my salmon came with a salad. I was told in a snarky way that if I wanted a salad I had to order in advance as it came with potatoes by default. I tend to shut down when someone speaks rudely to me but I think this would be a time when I should have asked the manager/owner to give me an explanation about this. Perhaps the servers need more training in customer service? if I am asking about a salad, offer me the salad and let me know I can have it for an x amount if that was the problem. I did like the food and the soy cappuccino was fantastic.

Had the el jardinere scramble and it was delicious, the mushrooms were some sort of fancy & tasty kind that added a great flavor.

Unky, I'm glad you noticed the taste of the mushrooms in your Jardiniere Scramble. It really brings the spinach and tomato together, doesn't it? Thanks for letting me know how much you loved your dish. I hope you'll return for more soon. -Jason, Proprietor

Oatmeal, french toast, egg bacon croissant, water $42.00. Great quality ingredients. Good food, but nothing I'll want to remember. Ability to voice my opinion, priceless.

Good casual food. Sandwiches, salads, or just coffee and pastries. The only downside is that the tables are crammed together, and the noise level can be intense.

I can't recommend Rigolo Cafe. I really wanted to like this place and tried it more thank once.It's prices are high, the food is just not that good and the staff are not friendly. There is no table service. They have lots of customers at lunch so the wait can be long. I feel the staff are indifferent to the customers.
Response from the owner - 2 months ago
Dan, it's a shame to hear this is the impression you've received. Frankly, it's surprising, because our staff truly cares about the experience of each customer. For breakfast and lunch, we have always had counter service and at dinner, we offer full sit-down table service. All of our service models and service people are dedicated to ensuring the best possible dining experience. Also, our entire menu is made up of high-quality, fresh ingredients, so that quality is reflected in the price. If these aren't the qualities that stood out to you during your last visit, then you haven't had our best. I hope you'll give us another chance to show you how excited we are to serve you a delicious, high-quality meal. -Jason, Proprietor

I'm a stickler for service! Me and my family were "taken" care of from order to delivery of the food. Well done. Oh, and the food was delicious! A bit pricey but they have to pay for rent in Laurel Heights so I get it. We'll be back!

Cupochino served cold, the chef's hair served with the scrambled eggs, potatoes served instead of fruit, paid $2 for past its days side avocado ... . No apologies no a smile. NOT RECOMMEND!
