Restaurant Visit: Seesaw Cafe in San Francisco

August 22, 2011

Sabrina Gabel, a child psychologist, and her husband opened the Seesaw Cafe in the Hayes Valley neighborhood of San Francisco with the mission of inspiring curiosity, creativity, and connection. The airy interior features elements from both the Danish and Korean aesthetic (representing the heritage of Gabel and her husband), with pale wood flooring, a pair of classic Poul Henningsen lights, and expanses of white walls; the wood shelves hold developmentally appropriate toys and books. For more information, go to Seesaw Cafe.
