Looking for a last-minute treat to put under the tree or on the table? Or maybe you just need to stop in somewhere and get some sweet relief from holiday shopping? We’ve got you covered.
Hearth Coffee (just opened!)
Hearth’s brand new cafe and roastery opened its doors in the Castro just in time for the season. The cafe is also offering baked goods, small plates, and beer and wine. Founders Ariana Akbar and James Kafader have been roasting single-origin, organic coffee since 2010 and we’re so thrilled to see their vision materialize into this beautiful space. Pick up some of their beans at the cafe or enjoy a coffee flight or pairing on site.
