The Ocean Beach Bulletin has an extensive writeup about ~BEACHSIDE COFFEE BAR AND KITCHEN~, a new restaurant opening Thursday August 25th in the Outer Sunset. Eater originally revealed the project is from the team behind Java Beach, Pat and Buffy Maguire. There will be espresso off a gleaming La Marzocco machine and a house-built drip station, featuring a niche coffee selection that will rotate. They’re also doing a special cold press iced coffee: coarsely ground coffee that is steeped for 24 hours in cold water and then strained, which is double the concentrate, and it never touches heat! I gotta try it.

The owners sent me a menu, letting me know all meat, produce, and products are local, sustainable, and/or organic. There’s a fried egg sandwich, bacon waffles, and more for breakfast (surfers will be stoked); and for lunch, Buffy is making his grandfather’s meatballs in a sandwich, plus there’s a fried chicken sandwich, pulled pork sliders with frizzled onions, and the vegans can tuck into a special banh mi (if you don’t want a sandwich, you can turn any of these items into a salad instead). There will also be homemade cookies, a cold press coffee snow cone with salted caramel, cotton candy, and Straus soft-serve ice cream. There will be around 25 seats, plus some outdoor seating. Hours to start will be 7am-7pm (or later). And please note, there is no Wi-Fi, so leave the laptop at home. 4300 Judah St. at 48th Ave., 415-682-4961.
