If you're in the Financial District and looking for a cheap way to support your early morning caffeine craving or need for a mid-afternoon metabolic boost, consider venturing to the Hilton. That's right: The heiress-spawning luxury hotel chain has opened the Coffee Shack, a coffee truck on its front drive with a commitment to serving nothing over $6.

This short-but-appealing menu provides just the right amount of options and is sure not to break your budget. It includes breakfast burritos, pastries, and fresh fruit in the morning; salad and sandwich wraps, spiced pork served in a rice bowl or on a corn tortilla, and build your-own bratwursts or hot dogs for lunch. Primo Espresso's dark roast coffee, priced at just $1 a cup, may be the best bargain at the shack.

The Coffee Shack is open daily from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m., and at the corner of Kearny and Washington, is the ideal sidewalk stop for city visitors, students, and Financial District workers on a budget.

  • 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.'"
