Back in August, we announced that brothers Chris and Thomas Newbury of ~RÉVEILLE COFFEE CO.~ were preparing to open their fourth and largest location in Mission Bay, and it’s now open. The location will serve as their flagship and headquarters, with a roasting facility, training center, and espresso bar.

Next door is ~CAFÉ RÉVEILLE~, with a full kitchen and bar serving wine and beer, plus there’s an outdoor seating area. You can enjoy baked goods from Starter Bakery and Neighbor Bakehouse, and a breakfast and lunch menu along with their coffee. Dishes like chia pudding, avocado toast, congee, and hot cakes are on the breakfast menu, while lunch has a burger, kale Cobb salad, fried chicken sandwich, and more. Open daily 7am-4pm. 610 Long Bridge St. at 4th St.

Was sorry to read in Hoodline about Lower Haight’s ~BEAN THERE~ being abruptly squeezed out after 21 years—it’s the same old SF story, it seems: landlord and lease woes. Owners Susi Weissmann and Mike Fakhoury are reportedly looking for a new location. 201 Steiner St. at Waller.
