Here’s a little grab bag of news tidbits: a reader let me know a new café called ~FLYING PIG BISTRO~ is moving into the former South Side Café space in the Mission. Unfortunately, details are currently sparse. 433 S. Van Ness Ave. at 15th St.

There’s a new coffee truck called ~RÉVEILLE COFFEE COMPANY~ from brothers Tommy and Christopher Newbury, according to Eater. Nice, there’s a La Marzocco on board. As of yesterday, you can find the truck parked in the parking lot at Pacific Avenue and Sansome. Here’s what’s on board: Four Barrel Coffee (and beans that you can purchase), and a limited selection of pastries (starting with croissants) from Pâtisserie Philippe. Open Mon-Fri 6:30am-5:30pm, and cruising around elsewhere on the weekends (you can follow them on Twitter).

Another reader let me know ~BIRLEY SANDWICHES~ in Four Embarcadero (100 Drumm Street) is reportedly becoming Breaking Bread Sandwiches (there’s a new owner), but the other Birley at 100 Pine Street will remain as is.

As for closures, ~HOLLY’S COMEDY CLUB~ above the AMC Van Ness is closed after just six weeks, and the Scoop mentions ~DIGS BISTRO~ in Berkeley is closing after their New Year’s Eve service. 1453 Dwight Way, Berkeley, 510-548-2322.
