The hill-bound denizens of Nob Hill are now in much closer proximity to Craftsman and Wolves' sought after goods, with the opening CAW Pacific. The second location from chef-owner William Werner is now open, serving up their inventive menu of pastries and savory fare.
Like the original location on Valencia Street, CAW Pacific will offer pastries and breakfast items like the frittata breakfast sandwich, as well as sandwiches, salads and savory tarts for lunch. Pastries, breads and desserts in unconventional flavor combinations, like a rose geranium and pomegranate verrine, are available to eat in or take to go. Oakland's Highwire Coffee is the brew of choice, including their Howling Wolf nitro cold brew; they'll also serve Naivetea teas, a Valrhona hot chocolate, juices and upscale sodas.
While the 900-square-foot space doesn't leave a lot of room for décor, the minimal design from MAK Studio mirrors the sleek design of the original location, while offering some quirky new details. Werner himself is behind the dismantled 1950 Triumph Thunderbird that adorns the wall, a tribute to his love of vintage motorcycles.
The café and patisserie will open seven days a week from 7 a.m.- 6 p.m. Monday- Thursday, 7 a.m.-7 p.m. on Friday, 8 a.m.-7 p.m. on Saturday and 8 a.m.-6 p.m. on Sunday.
Pending some last minute electrical inspections, the café is slated to open Saturday, December 12. Stay tuned for more info.
