If anyone was wondering why I fell off the face of the blogging earth the last couple of weeks, it’s due to a mixture of starting a new job (!) and frantically planning my two-week getaway at the end of March through Eastern Europe and Japan. And if you know anything about how I travel, that means spreadsheets and food.
As part of my Eastern European food “research” (eating is totally research), I visited 20th Century Cafe over the weekend, a year and a half old establishment tucked away in Hayes Valley. Brimming with natural light from the large windows and white interior, the cafe touts pastries and savories inspired by Prague, Vienna, and Budapest; pastry chef Michelle Polzine traveled through these areas some years back and vowed to bring them to SF, and so the cafe was born.
