For those of you who like the idea of a souffle but don't like the idea of making it yourself, there's Cafe Jacqueline. It's a charming little all-souffle restaurant in North Beach. I think it is the most romantic restaurant in the city. You should be prepared to relax and stay a while, because Jacqueline makes all the souffles herself. I recommend ordering a salad or soup and then be patient. It's worth it! I love the white corn, garlic, and ginger souffle. For dessert, the chocolate or raspberry if it's available. Also, make sure you take a trip to the restroom so you can walk by the kitchen and see Jacqueline with her huge bowl of eggs.
There are only ten tables in the restaurant so make sure you have a reservation. You can find Cafe Jacqueline at 1454 Grant Avenue in San Francisco (between Green & Union). The phone number for reservations is (415) 981-5565. The cost is about $100 for 2 people (alcohol not included).
