Causal, inexpensive, yummy cakes
Posted on 10 / 06 / 2012
I had read about this place on happycow and came by in October 2012 to have a look. Here's my Loving Hut Chinatown review.
Perched at the top of the hill in Chinatown, it was quite a trek for me to get up there from Market Street. But once I got there it seemed like no trouble at all. The restaurant is located on a corner and has large windows on both sides of the street, so it gets a lot of natural lighting inside. The furniture is all white, like most of all the Loving Hut restaurants. It's a small place but still fits plenty of tables.
Because I had already eaten lunch, I opted for a slice of cake and tea. The green tea was just Lipton tea bag. The mocha cake, however, was incredibly fresh, moist, and delicious--easily one of the best vegan cakes I've ever tasted. Also it was not too sweet, just the way I liked. The staff told me that the same baker who makes their cakes also delivers to the Loving Hut in Sunset District.
Next time I'm in the area, I'd like to try their soups.
