Our Pacific Heights cafe is in the former Shumate’s Pharmacy, where the only remnants of this early-twentieth-century chain are the tiles spelling "Shumate" underfoot. This time around, we’re not offering medicine per se, but our drip coffees, espresso bar, and full menu are restoratives in their own right.
Seventies modernism inspires the interior’s amber-hued quartz countertops and white oak surfaces; vintage Pioneer speakers add a smooth backdrop of stereophonic sound. Just outside our front door is Alta Park, a blanket of green that covers four city blocks. Climb its many-terraced steps to the top, coffee and pastry in hand, and view sailboats curlicuing on the Bay between the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz Island.
When the Pacific fog rolls back in, our cafe will still be there. We think of it as a place to begin panoramic daydreams and the place to recount them—in warmth and with friends.
