No white fancy tablecloth. No fuss. No bullshit. Just really good F-ing good food. That’s what Little Gem is all about.
Little Gem isn’t your typical restaurant. It is far from a three star Michelin restaurant, but their food doesn’t come far from it. This is the type of restaurant that the city of SF needs more of.
David Cruz and Eric Lilavois of Little Gem have one mission in mind – to deliver the best food possible to everyone who walks through the door.
Everything is so flavorful, tastes delicious and just so HAPPENS to be free of gluten, dairy and refined sugars.
I’m all about it.
Located in Hayes Valley, Little Gem is one the most laid back restaurants in San Francisco serving some of the best fried chicken, pancakes, bowls, and desserts. You won’t be overwhelmed by the menu, the service is always friendly, and the atmosphere is extremely chill with good music playing in the background.
What you’ll find at Little Gem are the best healthy pancakes ever (hold on, let me finish). Before you roll your eyes, yes, I said “healthy.” The pancakes are made from scratch and are TO DIE for (ok, I’m being a little dramatic). But seriously, I live for these.
And if pancakes aren’t your thing, then try their fried chicken. It’s the best fried chicken in San Francisco. No, it’s not “healthy”, but it’s probably healthier for you… plus its bomb and worth it. Perfectly crispy. The meat is juicy. And has just the right amount of flavor.
What I’m getting at, is there is something for everyone. I’m sure you get the idea what Little Gem is about. The menu changes often so I’ll just share some pics with you, hopefully it’ll make you drool and visit them soon! Check out their IG here.
