Hilde and Jesse

Rachel and Kristina bring warmth, happiness, and elegance to their North Beach restaurant through their joyful menu, curated collection of sparkling wine and their equally sparking personalities. The James Beard Foundation named Kristina a Best Chef finalist and the neighborhood regulars can attest to why. And, just try not to smile here.

Michelin Guide, Bib Gourmand, 2023

“Offering what may well be the Bay Area’s most creative and ambitious take on brunch, this disarming passion project from co-owners Kristina Compton and Rachel Sillcocks gets its extra shine from the pair’s extensive fine dining experience—each also contributed a grandparent for the restaurant’s name. The hospitality is cheery and warm, matched by a winsome space that calls to mind a modernist diner, and happily the cuisine is every bit as finely tuned. You’ll find no basic benedicts here, but rather an assortment of original, ingredient-driven dishes that change with the seasons, and even sweet standbys like pancakes and French toast are whimsically reimagined. Beverage options display a similar attention to detail, whether it be coffee, sake or vermouth.”
