433 Kearny St., Financial District
Status: Open today
The FiDi just got a little more caffeinated with its second location of Coffee Bar (and the chain's third overall), housed in the ground floor of the St. Mary's Square Garage. The 700-foot space features all the hallmarks of the other Coffee Bars: freshly-roasted beans from Oakland's Mr. Espresso, lattes with housemade vanilla and caramel syrup, and hot chocolates and mochas featuring Recchiuti chocolate. Chai, Vietnamese iced coffee, and a "Havana latte" are also available. Two La Marzocco Strada machines do the heavy lifting, while Starter Bakery and Sandbox Bakery provide morning pastries.
At lunch, a selection of grab-and-go sandwiches and salads take the stage, as well as Straus yogurt, cold-pressed juices, and Anthony's Cookies. The space was designed by Jones Haydu, which also did the Coffee Bar on Montgomery Street. Hours are Monday-Friday, 6 am-3 pm.
