The Tenderloin is about to get a new coffee shop from a Four Barrel alum, Hoodline reports. It’s called ~GEORGE AND LENNIE~, which may ring a bell for readers familiar with the Steinbeck novel Of Mice and Men. Owner Brett Walker decided to name the shop after his favorite book, since it’s the realization of a longtime dream, not unlike the never-realized ranch the novel’s characters speak of at length.
The shop will be opening in the next few weeks on the ground floor of the Lofts at Seven building, a new complex with residential units above. There will be some food options that Walker is still figuring out, and he’s also applying for a beer and wine license. He’ll be using both Four Barrel and De La Paz beans for the coffee too. 277 Golden Gate Ave. at Hyde.
