Reviews for Balompié Cafe

Horrible service we 1st sat outside no one ever even greeted us. So we went inside. Had to use the bathroom..Great! toilet paper..waited 10 minutes for 1 wait person to ask the other wait person to find out if there was toilet paper or not ..finally TP! then it was a conference about who should put the TP in the Bathroom ..ok We're sitting at the table. 1 wait woman was leaning against the wall deep in conversation w some guest the sky could have fallen she wasn't gonna full review

I wouldn't normally write a review for a quick lunch spot that I stopped at on a whim, but WOW, Balompie Cafe wowed my whole crew! The service was disarmingly friendly and welcoming, which made us feel instantly at home in their lovely sunny parklet. The food was DELICIOUS - yes pupusas are hard to mess up but this was another level of flavor and freshness. My discerning kids even said as we left, "WHEN CAN WE GO BACK?!"

A pair of cheese papusas for lunch -- just perfect! Ordered via the Yelp "Order Now" for take-out app. Easy, delicious. And gawd do I miss these! Lived in SF for 8 years back in the day. Now here for a visit with friends, since the vaccines make it safer to travel (yay, science!) SO happy to see Balompie has survived the pandemic and lock downs!!!!
