It's been an exciting couple of days for those of us who have to forage for food in the somewhat sterile section of SoMa known as Mission Bay. Just last Thursday we got Tsunami, a new Japanese joint for after-hours sake and sushi. And yesterday The Creamery opened its doors on Fourth and Townsend (a lovely spot for those of us who wait in the cold for the 47, 30 or 45 bus lines). We'd been curious about the coffee house --which we'd initially thought would be an ice cream parlor or cheese stop with such a name-- since we saw it on Eater's Plywood Report in January. So we dropped by for some caffeine earlier today.

To see if Ritual coffee lived up to the hype (note: it did), my companion ordered a cappuccino while I opted for a green tea latte. Each was wonderfully foamy, though my cup was more latte than tea from what I could tell. We sampled some biscotti and a large pumpkin muffin studded with raisins:

From what we could tell, The Creamery was off to a good start. But we're positive the harpies on Yelp will have a dozen things to say about that: already the reviews are starting to trickle in.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
