A report by Dana Massey-Todd: After following up on a tweet tip from @thebolditalic, it looks like ~DRAGONEATS~ plans to open in Hayes Valley in the coming week. The owner, Vu Lam, has been working on the space and menu. He will offer Vietnamese snacks such as fresh rolls and banh mi, as well as Vietnamese coffee. They will be open for breakfast and lunch, though the exact hours have not yet been determined. Stay tuned for more details as they emerge! 520 Gough St. at Grove, 415-795-1469.

Down on the border between Potrero Hill and SoMa, ~PAPA NOVEMBER~ has set up shop on the corner of 15th Street and Kansas in the original Blue Bottle coffee cart. They are one of the few places to serve Stumptown coffee in San Francisco, and they will be offering both espresso drinks and a rotating single-origin drip coffee. Their signature drink is the cortado, the Spanish espresso drink with the slightest bit more milk than a macchiato. (It’s the perfect ratio, trust me.) There will be baked goods from Goody Goodie, as well as their very own breakfast cookie (oatmeal, apricot, and chocolate) and a seasonal scone. Open Mon-Fri 8am-3pm at 15th St. and Kansas.
