Located in the Presidio's Letterman District within the Tides Converge​ campus, Cafe Rx is a little bit off the beaten path. You're more likely to find park workers than visitors at this reliable, reasonably priced, and unfussy walk-up eatery.

Open for breakfast and lunch, Monday through Friday from 8 am to 2:30 pm, Café Rx offers a mix of expected fare and unique gourmet bistro offerings on its eclectic me​nu. Chef and owner Rogelio Colindres, who opened Café Rx in 2013, is originally from El Salvador, so along with bagels, sandwiches, and salads, you'll find Latin American-inspired specials, like pupusas and tamales, on the changing daily menu.

As for its name, Rx pays homage to its building, which was originally a pharmacy in the former Letterman Hospital. Keeping with the health-inspired theme, the cafe prepares all of its food with fresh, organic, free-range, locally grown, and seasonal ingredients. It also offers options for vegetarians and those on gluten-free diets.

While you're here, don't forget to visit the Tides Converge art galleries just down the hall, and the life-sized bronze Yoda statue at the Letterman Digital Arts Center​ next door. As with the Yoda sculpture, Café Rx is a hidden, unexpected, and completely worthwhile Presidio destination.
