Good News/Bad News in the Western Addition

How do you like to hear it? Okay, first, the bad news: I was sad to hear the lovely couple that have been running the restaurant in the Metro Hotel (previously Metro Kathmandu, and now Metro Cafe) on Divisadero have decided to close. They worked so hard the last three years. As the co-owner Roshan stated in an email to me, “I am proud to be a part of a neighborhood that is very compassionate for small businesses like Metro Cafe. Having said that, I am not sure what my next venture would be. As of now, my wife and I look forward to having some weekends off after many years.” Indeed. All the best to them.

Okay, you ready for some good news? You can now take your pick of 12 flavors of the wild and wonderful ice cream from the Mission’s ~HUMPHRY SLOCOMBE~ at a walk-up counter at the DeLessio Market on Broderick. You’ll find the same cones, cups, and rotating flavors as you would at the Mission location.
