Athough at a risk of dating myself, I must confess to remembering with fondness a San Francisco institution located across from Union Square on Geary. Blum's was not only a regular stop for many shopping ladies, men, and families for coffee and a slice of the infamous Coffee Crunch cake but also had a great luncheon menu with terrific clubhouse sandwich, welsh rarebit, and what I remember most fondly, a sweet mix of peppers with onion condiment for sandwiches. The decor and dessert display always delighted me and was an oasis away from the hectic pace of shopping especially during the holiday season. I wonder why this type of restaurant has disappeared from the San Francisco landscape? Can Chowhounders recommend somewhere else similar to the feel of Blum's? I long for a sit down luncheon spot with a similar menu and sweetness of Blum's. It doesn't have to be in the Union Square area, for a walk down memory lane I will travel great distances. Many thanks in advance.
