An Inner Sunset sandwich staple has resurfaced in Dogpatch: Wooly Pig, which closed in March after years as a community hub at 205 Hugo Street, has completed its move to 2295 3rd Street (at 20th). The cafe is celebrating its grand (re)opening today, and the menu features hits from the last location, like the cafe’s signature Wooly Pig sandwich (with Shanghai-style braised caramel pork belly) created by co-owner Lieng Souryavong.
The new, larger location has 1,861 square feet of room, and it boasts coffee drinks from Andytown and a shiny new beer and wine license. It joins a growing cadre of Dogpatch businesses catering to the area’s workers and residents, both new and established (think UCSF Mission Bay professionals, Caltrain commuters, and soon, basketball fans at the new Warriors stadium).
As of today, the Wooly Pig’s hours are 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on weekdays, and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekends. Meanwhile, the old Wooly Pig space is getting ready to welcome a new neighborhood business: Yo También Cantina and Mercadito, which is preparing to open soon for Venezuelan/Californian food at 3rd and Hugo.
