There’s a new coffee roaster in town, or will be soon. ~ANDYTOWN~ is coming to the Outer Sunset, hopefully in the summer of 2013. The owners are husband and wife Michael McCrory and Lauren Crabbe. They’ve both got a well-caffeinated pedigree: he worked at Java Beach and helped open Beachside Café, and she’s worked at Hollow and Trouble Coffee, and was most recently lead barista at Blue Bottle’s Ferry Building location.

They’ll be roasting their own coffee on a tiny roaster in-house, and serving food inspired by McCrory’s childhood in Belfast, Ireland (recipes are in development now—check out that soda bread!). The name of the spot is taken from the neighborhood he grew up in, and they’ll be using his family recipes, made with California ingredients. They are also applying for a beer and wine license. They’ve only just signed the lease, so details are still emerging, but we’ll keep you updated as they get closer to opening up. 3655 Lawton St. at 43rd Ave.
