A wonderful, magical animal

It’s funny…for someone who doesn’t eat breakfast on a regular basis, I sure love breakfast foods!

A few weeks ago I was out in the Mission looking for somewhere to have brunch/lunch. We ended up choosing the Pork Store Cafe, on a whim. This place, while maybe not the best ever, definitely knows how to …
