No OCLC listing. Did not see listed in San Francisco City Directories from 1890 - 1940*. A quirky piece of food history.
The menu lists breakfast and lunch items as well as desserts. The slip is announcing "Unique Opening Dinner" which has us believing they started offering dinner service a bit later. The dinner is 85 cents and includes an appetizer, entree and dessert. The slip also states "Patrons will be pleased to learn after today we specialize in an extensive Menu".
No phone number listed, just the address as 624-632 Post Street.
*1906 Volume 2 was missing pages where "Place Unique" may have been listed.
