This sassy diner -- a sign on a front window warns, "We reserve the right to pour coffee on your cellphone" -- attracts locals, students, artists and other creative types in need of its huge beignets (three for $4.75) or other New Orleans and Mexican specialties ($8.50-$9.25). It's way off the tourist track in the Dogpatch neighborhood east of Potrero Hill, but well worth the trek for breakfast or lunch. 732 22nd St.; (415) 647-3033, http://www.justforyoucafe.com. Open 7:30 a.m.-3 p.m. Mondays-Fridays, 8 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturdays-Sundays. View Just for You Cafe in Google street view.
