Neighbor Bakehouse: Sauerkraut Smoked Cheddar Peppadew Tart

Last weekend my friend introduced me Neighbor Bakehouse, in the Dogpatch neighborhood of San Francisco. We met up at her place and walked over. Let me preface this by saying that I had never heard of it before and had zero expectations about where we were going. It’s small. No seating inside. You can see […]

Coffee Bar SF: Latte

Whenever I’m in the Mission/Potrero area I always stop by Coffee Bar. It’s over on Bryant and Mariposa, and this place has great coffee, great food, and it’s a really nice place to work.
