Trendy Modern Feel

I had read about this place on happycow and decided to stop by here on my last trip to San Francisco. Here's my The Plant Cafe Organic at Pier 3 review.
Interesting, the restaurant is divided into 2 separate spaces, across from each other. The kitchen and the takeaway counter in one place, and the sit-down restaurant with also outdoor waterfront patio seating on the other side. I saw their staff coming in and out from one place to the other to bring food and orders.
The takeout counter features some fresh baked goods. On the day I visited, there were several marked "V" vegan ones: a vegan chocolate chip cookie, another kind of cookie, vegan muffin, and maybe another thing (can't recall). The coffee brand advertised is Blue Bottle Coffee, which seems to be a big thing here in San Francisco (I think I'll try some tomorrow morning). The Plant also offers fresh pressed juices. My husband got a green juice with beet, and it was good.
Trendy modern slightly upscale vibe but casual okay. Touristy location.
