My friends always like to pop in to this little coffee kiosk after eating around this area. Always a little line but they are fast. My friend swears by their cappuccino. My favorite is the hot chocolate. Perfect for a foggy day.

Hayes Valley
Chock full of designer boutiques, art galleries, funky
shoe stores, and great restaurants, it’s hard to
imagine Hayes Valley once languished in the shadow of
a major freeway. Its removal allowed for the creation

community park at its center and dozens of trendy
