I overheard a converstation recently (you can overhear it too, if you scroll down a bit and look for steak tartare) about the best French Bistro in San Francisco. This conversation soon took a tangent off to the rarified evirons of the difference between a French Cafe and a French Bistro.
This seems like a good way to waste a few minutes and also to enlighten me as to the difference between a Cafe and Bistro.
Here is a list of "French Cafe/Bistros". Which are Bistros, which are Cafes? Which are the best? Why?
Cafe De La Presse
Jeanty at Jacks
South Park Cafe
Chez Papa Bistrot
Le Petite Robert
