Man, my neighborhood just doesn’t quit. Was thrilled to read that Jeremy Tooker of Four Barrel Coffee is going to be opening a café in the former (and rather fabulous) Emblem Market space on Divisadero. But it’s not going to be another Four Barrel—it’s going to have a different name, vibe, and aesthetic (the name is currently TBD), but of course the coffee will be from Four Barrel.

Since it’s such a spacious location, Jeremy is going to have the talented Josey Baker open a bakery in the back. The menu will include a toast bar, featuring Josey’s bread with a variety of spreads, from honey made from bees on the roof to homemade peanut butter. There is also a backyard that can be made into a garden, and possibly an outdoor space for customers. There will be about 50 seats or so in the café. The target date is currently spring 2012. 736 Divisadero St. at Fulton.
