It’s official: ~PRIME DIP~ has landed at the old Jubili Yogurt location at 1515 Fillmore Street (thanks to a tablehopper reader for the tip). They are serving the well-stuffed, quality classic sandwiches made notorious at their Larkin Street location. Look out for lobster, prime rib, and pastrami dip sandwiches. Open Mon-Fri 11am-6pm, Sat-Sun 11am-8pm. 1515 Fillmore St. at O’Farrell, 415-800-8244.

~CRÊPERIE SAINT GERMAIN~ is opening a second location on Friday June 15th in the Bank of America building at 555 California St. You’ll be able to swing by for Zeynep (“Z”) Aynaci’s traditional French buckwheat and gluten-free crêpes made with organic ingredients, like the braised beef crêpe with avocado, jalapeño, cheese, tomato, and green onion, or the original sugar crêpe with lemon, butter, or cinnamon. Hours will be 5am-5pm. A third location will be opening in the Metreon Center at 135 4th St. in early July; hours will be 10am-12am.

According to this post on Josey Baker’s blog, ~THE MILL~, the collaborative café and bakery with Jeremy Tooker of Four Barrel, is going to open a “teensy tiny coffee cart toast bar” any day now; the big opening is slated for August. 736 Divisadero St. at Grove.

A beer and wine license looks to be impending for ~THE WAY OUT CAFE~, which opened at the end of April but has escaped my radar until now. Reviews on Yelp are surprisingly positive, mentioning a nice vibe, a foosball table, quality pastries and coffee (which come with the option of almond milk), and housemade espresso ice cream. 3188 Mission St. at Valencia, 415-240-2743.

License transfers from the former Chilayo on Chestnut point to a new business, ~BLACKWOOD THAI CUISINE~. Scoop shares additional details that the owner of Sweet Maple in the Fillmore area, Steven Choi, is behind the project, which should be opening very soon. 2150 Chestnut St. at Pierce.
