Katie's Café is a small family-owned chain of cafés in San Francisco, California, USA. The original Katie's location in Noe Valley opened its doors in summer 2006 after founder Katie Ricks decided to spread her love of delicious baked goods and quality coffee to the neighborhood she resided in.
Katie's in Noe expanded its menu to include full meals in addition to baked goods in 2007.
Soon afterward in spring 2008 Katie's opened a new location in Laurel Heights just north of the University of San Francisco. A third location in Cole Valley opened in winter 2011.
Every item served at Katie's Café is created from Katie's own recipes, painstakingly crafted through years of baking for friends and family.
Katie's Café has won several awards in the annual San Francisco Times Best of SF competition, most notably Café of the Year in 2010.
Katie's was also recently featured in an episode of No Fear: The Culinary Travels of Andrew Bourdin; Andrew pronounced her Abomination Unto the Lord Cake "a life-changing experience that has ruined me for all other cakes."
Katie still lives in Noe Valley a few short blocks away from the original Katie's location with her husband and three children.
With the enthusiastic support of her many loyal customers, Katie plans to continue honing the menu with fresh local ingredients and innovative recipes for many years to come.
