The criminally undercaffeinated Tendernob jolted towards a satisfying set of shakes as Jane on Larkin -- the companion shop to Jane on Fillmore -- has opened its doors, making latte art. An opening party on Friday night brought out none other than Supervisor David Chiu, so there is some governmental muscle coming to the corner of Larkin and Cedar Street, a less-than-savory alley best known as the place where Edinburgh Castle washes out its bar mats.

Not to be confused with nearby Libby Jane Café (the to-go offshoot of Brenda's Soul Food, which is only a few blocks down Larkin), Jane falls under the heading of Quiet Place with Free Wi-Fi, and serves Stumptown Coffee. Light and airy as one might expect considering that architectural firm and next-door-neighbor Boor Bridges designed it, this former bookstore has got the white-subway-tile thing going on in earnest. That might be a cliché in the Mission but makes a nice, light touch for a neighborhood about to see the heavy hand of gentrification slam down any day now.

Right now, service consists of coffee, pastries and smoothies, but a full lunch roll-out ought to pick up in the weeks to come, making Jane II: Electric Boogaloo virtually identical to the Fillmore location.

Jane on Larkin, 925 Larkin St., (415) 931-5263.

  • 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.'"
