Repose Coffee Spruces Up Lower Divis, Parklet to Follow

Posted By on Thu, Apr 23, 2015 at 4:00 PM


Divisadero might be the new Valencia, but it doesn’t yet have the density of coffee shops and parklets that the Mission’s increasingly post-hip drag does. Yes, there’s Vinyl, Mojo, and of course, the Mill, but considering the huge numbers of cafes that have gone into the Castro in the last 18 months, the neighborhood can clearly sustain a few more (especially as so many morning commuters cross Divis).

The Mill Still Standing After Small Chimney Fire

Calm down everyone. The $4 toast made it out okay. The Mill, Alamo Square's incredibly hip (and incredibly delicious) bakery/coffeehouse, was shut down unexpectedly last night following a small chimney fire.

In one of the most anticipated expansions in the city this year, Bi-Rite Market opened its doors on its second location on Divisadero today. The boutique market, formerly only found on 18th between Guerrero and Dolores, is a foodie haven, with hundreds of small-batch, locally sourced, hard-to-find products, great produce, affordable wines, and delectable ice cream, among other things. Unlike the Mission store, the new location has an ice cream counter built right into the market, and will certainly invite its own lines starting today, with temperatures expected to climb into the 70s.

After seven months as a tent in front of its brick-and-mortar space on Divisadero, The Mill officially opened its doors this morning. By its second hour the line was stacked deep and looking antsy. The new spot from Josey Baker and Jeremy Tooker (Four Barrel) is a combination bakery/cafe, a welcome marriage of Four Barrel's reliably delicious coffee and Baker's well-loved repertoire of baked goods.

Wine Kitchen Proves Western Addition's Growing Clout

Posted By on Wed, Jan 16, 2013 at 11:15 AM

  • Pete Kane

And you thought Bi-Rite 2.0 was the only major development on Divis these days.

Newly open between Fell and Hayes, the warm, capacious and unpretentiously named Wine Kitchen may not rival the gourmet market opening across the street as an anchor tenant of a neighborhood in transition, but it's set to become a local jewel just the same. (No disrespect, Popeye's.)

Cookin': Helping You in the Kitchen Since 1981

Posted By on Thu, Aug 16, 2012 at 8:00 AM

  • Christina Spittler

Glass cake pedestals and ornately decorated ceramic dishes teeter in tall stacks. A single container holds a wire nest of no fewer than 14 different kinds of whisks. Baskets full of vintage cookbooks sit on the floor. If you're looking to acquire some eclectic and time-tested cookware, the Divisadero shop Cookin' is the place. And if you have a specific recipe or item in mind, owner Judith Kaminsky, with her trusty golden Lhasa named Tank by her side, has made it her life's work to help you find what you need.

With 25 years of experience under her belt, Kaminsky just may be your greatest ally in the kitchen. Although she has never clocked any hours in a professional kitchen, Kaminsky has been an enthusiastic baker throughout her life and knows every detail -- along with the whereabouts -- of every item in her extensive and seemingly chaotic collection of blenders, cast iron skillets, and silicone molds.

The Little Chihuahua: Not Our Fave Breakfast Burrito in S.F.

Posted By on Mon, Jul 23, 2012 at 1:30 PM

  • Anna Roth

7x7's list of S.F.'s best breakfast burritos hit our social media stream over the weekend, which thrilled us, because breakfast burritos are our hangover cure of choice. But unfortunately we can't sign off on The Little Chihuahua, which we'd been disappointed by only the day before. The burrito's ingredients were nicely fresh, but all the veggies made the thing way too watery for our taste (7x7 described it as "wet-style"; we'd use the word "soggy"). We wanted crispier potatoes, more cheese, and fewer onions.

  • 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.'"
