  • Lou's breakfast sandwich puts the hash browns between ciabatta halves.

Lou's Café is an eight-month-old sandwich spot in the Richmond, serving toasted-to-order gourmet sandwiches and salads priced under $7. We're partial to the LLB Special on Dutch crunch, but we think the breakfast sandwich is the most rave-worthy item here.

It's a kitchen-sink breakfast: ham, bacon, or both, scrambled eggs, American cheese, and hash browns, all on ciabatta. It's available all day (or until they run out of ciabatta) and fit for a world-champion appetite, or those willing to share. The $4.49 price makes it a no-brainer, besides being nirvana in your mouth.

By the way, regular customers should request a stamped club card (the 10th sandwich is free). Another tip not listed on the menu: Ask for a combo, i.e. a choice of two items, half a sandwich, half a salad, or a cup of soup for $6.99.

Lou's Café: 5017 Geary (at 14th Ave.), 379-4429; open Mon.-Fri. 8 a.m.-7 p.m., Sat. 8 a.m.-4 p.m.; closed Sun.

  • Arcade Fire at Shoreline
    Arcade Fire opened their US tour at Shoreline Amphitheater to a full house who was there in support of their album "Reflector," which was released last fall. Dan Deacon opened the show to a happily surprised early audience and got the crowd actively dancing and warmed up. DEVO was originally on the bill to support Arcade Fire but a kayak accident last week had sidelined lead singer Mark Mothersbaugh and the duration of the west coast leg of the tour. Win Butler did a homage to DEVO by performing Uncontrollable Urge.
  • Comic Con 2014

    Comic book enthusiasts, Cosplayers, TV and movie fans, and celebrities descended to sunny San Diego for the annual gathering at Comic-Con International.

    Whether hitting up a panel to check out The Simpson's announcement of a cross over with Family Guy or Futurama. Or hearing a new movie with Sam Raimie based on a video game or accidentally rubbing shoulders with Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) in cosplay, being a cosplayer, San Diego Comic-Con is the place to be.
