Coffee and bikes is always a strong and winning combo. If you swing by the ~PUBLIC BIKES STORE~ in South Park, you’ll find a new coffee bar area on the front porch, with service from Saint Frank Coffee (which is due to open its own shop in August on Polk Street). And to encourage you to head on over and check it out, Public is offering all customers and friends a free coffee drink through July 20th (just mention “Honduras”). 123 South Park at Center.

Was happy to return home and see that ~CAFE ST. JORGE~ has opened in Bernal. As we mentioned earlier, this Portuguese-inspired café is from Andrea de Francisco, serving vittles (like sandwiches, pastries, and more—check out the menus here) and Stumptown Coffee. Open Mon-Wed 7am-3:30pm, Thu-Sat 7am-8pm, Sun 8am-3:30pm. 3438 Mission St. at Kingston, 415-814-2028.

And in the Mission, Los Angeles import ~TIERRA MIA COFFEE~ has opened its first NorCal café, which we mentioned earlier this year. You can come by for more traditional coffee drinks, or check out the Latin-inspired beverages, like a Cubano con leche or horchata frappé. Open 6:30am-10pm daily. 3188 Mission St. at Valencia.
