Table of Contents

Now open on Fillmore Street is ~JANE~, a café bringing a taste of Mission coffee to the neighborhood. You’ll be able to get a variety of Four Barrel Coffee drinks off the La Marzocco FB/80, along with tea from Five Mountains, and house-baked goods that are made daily. I spoke with owner Amanda Michael, who said her baking style is American and homey, and will offer cookies, brownies, and other treats as well (plus Straus soft-serve ice cream in chocolate and vanilla). In about a week, the lunch menu will launch, with simple soup, salads, and sandwiches made with quality ingredients (local and organic when possible).

There are 32 seats, including a mezzanine with room for 12, and bar seating for 10. The cheerful café look was designed by Ken Fulk, and includes tufted black banquette seating, aluminum Navy chairs with salmon-pink cushions, and the unexpected addition of some taxidermy: a yak’s head, to be exact (I kind of love it). There’s also Wi-Fi available—they are going to see how it goes, and hopefully won’t have to enforce time limits. There’s also the discussion of eventually adding evening hours (with the same all-day menu), but for now, hours are Mon-Fri 7am-6pm, and Sat-Sun 8am-6pm. 2123 Fillmore St. at California, 415-931-JANE (5263).
