  • Lou's breakfast sandwich puts the hash browns between ciabatta halves.

Lou's Café is an eight-month-old sandwich spot in the Richmond, serving toasted-to-order gourmet sandwiches and salads priced under $7. We're partial to the LLB Special on Dutch crunch, but we think the breakfast sandwich is the most rave-worthy item here.

It's a kitchen-sink breakfast: ham, bacon, or both, scrambled eggs, American cheese, and hash browns, all on ciabatta. It's available all day (or until they run out of ciabatta) and fit for a world-champion appetite, or those willing to share. The $4.49 price makes it a no-brainer, besides being nirvana in your mouth.

By the way, regular customers should request a stamped club card (the 10th sandwich is free). Another tip not listed on the menu: Ask for a combo, i.e. a choice of two items, half a sandwich, half a salad, or a cup of soup for $6.99.

Lou's Café: 5017 Geary (at 14th Ave.), 379-4429; open Mon.-Fri. 8 a.m.-7 p.m., Sat. 8 a.m.-4 p.m.; closed Sun.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
