"I want this place to be transportive," says owner Michelle Polzine of 20th Century Café, her charming take on the grand cafes of middle Europe. On a birthday trip to Vienna, Budapest and Prague a few years ago, Polzine, a pastry chef, struck upon the idea of opening her own “grand cafe.” Polzine turned a former laundromat on a light-flooded corner in San Francisco's Hayes Valley neighborhood into her own little grand cafe, a throwback to a bygone era.The gooseneck lamps above the custom shelving were sourced from Hammerworks in Massachusetts.
