There’s a new café called ~CINQUE TERRE CAFE~ (or 5T as its logo proclaims) that opened on Van Ness last Monday February 28th. It’s run by some Italians, although they are using organic coffee from Equator Coffee. The menu includes salads and panini, plus plenty of European candy and chocolate bars. The eclectic style includes mismatched vintage chairs, bright colors, and fun signage. There’s plenty of comfy seating and free Wi-Fi, with plans to bring in beer and wine in the next few months. Open daily 6am-8pm. 1477 Van Ness Ave. at Pine, 415-674-7716.
