Elite Cafe: "Incredible Cajun....." Elite Cafe Tip by Agraichen

Elite Cafe, San Francisco: 1 reviews and 0 photos

Oh Wow!!! San Francisco at its finest.....so..ok no parking, lots of walking and small restaurant but OH MY GOD>>> what food!!!

Born in 1928, reinvented so to speak a couple of times and "re invented" in 1981 to be just like the original...Elite is exquisite.

Cajun-Creole at it's best....from personal experience it gives K-Paul (N'awlins) a run for it's money.

Favorite Dish: ONE ONLY??? DUH....

Shrimp in Shell to start
Organic Greens with Maple Balsamic next
Clam Chowder (the calm before the storm)
Shrimp Etouffee
Seared Beef
Sole Georgia stuffed with crab....

'Nuff? No, had to try it again to be sure...

Blackened Filet was incredible.
More saute shrimp as usual
BBQ Ribs...- Half the animal...enough for 4.
Glazed Pork Chop done to perfection.

More mashed with gravy; Creamed Spinach (and I used to think I hated spinach); Cornbread....(even better than the Gingerbread House in Oakland - well different......!!!)

Address: 2949 Fillmore Street San Francisco
Price Comparison: more expensive than average
Directions: "Fillmore District" Ya gotta know SF...but not really that far from down town.

Corner of Filmore and California.
