When I first heard that there was going to be a Jewish pop-up deli coming to the Mission, I was skeptical. Being from NY, I am all too familiar with the fact that there are no real Jewish delis in SF – something the city sorely lacks. I mean, what does someone have to do to get a proper rye bread and babka around here?
The answer: check out Wise Sons on a Saturday. They serve Saturdays at 105 Valencia @ McCoppin inside Jackie’s Cafe, 9am-2pm.
