Cawfee Tawk: Steep Opens in SoMa, Front on the Move, More


Some of the different lattes available at Steep: matcha, taro, and traditional. Yelp photo by Alvin Y.

There’s a new coffee, tea, and boba shop in the former Twofish Baking on Ritch Street in SoMa: ~STEEP~. They are offering espresso drinks, pour-over coffee from Equator, and a variety of tea drinks, from regular steeped tea to milk tea with boba (not something so easy to find in this part of town) to Thai iced tea. You’ll also find some acai bowls, baked goods, and more, like taro and matcha lattes. Open Mon-Fri 8am-5pm. 240 Ritch St. at Brannan.

Potrero Hill coffee fans will be sad to hear that ~FRONT~ has closed up shop after three years at their original location (150 Mississippi St.) and will be moving to the Mission. While the location has not been revealed, we’ll let you know when we hear the address!

The former Philz Coffee in the Castro is going to have Noe Valley’s ~BERNIE’S COFFEE~ move in to the space, their third location. Hoodline says there will also be baked goods from Raison D’Être and Nucha Empanadas. The opening should be happening very soon, they’re just waiting on an inspection from the Health Department. 4023 18th St. at Noe.
