As previously mentioned on tablehopper, ~GASLAMP CAFE~ is now open in SoMa. Look for Blue Bottle Coffee, Five Mountains tea, breakfast offerings like pastries and egg sandwiches, sandwiches for lunch, outdoor seating coming soon, and free Wi-Fi is with the purchase of a beverage or food. 1599 Howard St. at 12th St., 415-580-7493.
A tipster sent in news that the laundromat next door to Martuni’s, ~MISTER BUBBLES~, is going to be serving Verve Coffee—there is quite the mini café setup in the window, with a brand-new La Marzocco GB/5. It should be open and serving coffee very soon—the team finished their training and are just waiting on final inspections. So yeah, you can get seriously caffeinated all along Valencia Street now. 8 Valencia St. at Market.
