Café
“While you're here, we highly recommend checking out our neighborhood coffee shop! Staffed by neighborhood high school interns, it operates on a pay-it-forward model: your drink has already been paid for by someone else. You get to pay for for someone else's drink! Current hours: Tuesday: 7am-10am Friday: 9am-1pm Saturday: 9am-1pm Sunday: 1pm-5pm Hours sometimes change seasonally, so you might want to check Facebook to confirm: facebook.com/TheLocalCupSB ”

Café
“Buried away in an old warehouse, this otherwise abandoned building has been brought to life with the best coffee in town and a rotating selection of in-house infused simple syrups (like lavender, ghost pepper or clove and honey). Friday and Saturday nights, the neighboring LangLab (within the same building) mixes original cocktails and offers amazing pizzas and tacos.”
