SF Coffee Shop: The Village Market


One thing Andrew and I love to do on weekends, is explore new coffee shops in our area. There is this cute little bright green coffee shop I pass on my way to work each morning that I've always wanted to check it out, so we added it to our list of places to try sometime.

A few weeks ago, we decided it was time to give this place a try. As soon as we walked in, I knew I would like it. It has an eclectic vibe; offering not only coffee and espresso, but a small menu of homemade breakfast dishes as well. In addition to the cafe, it's also a neighborhood market with fresh produce, unique pastas and pantry items.

When you walk inside, it feels as though you're in a friends home. The tables and chairs are all mismatched and rustic, with a vintage buffet that houses water glasses, sugar, stevia & local honey. The decor creates a relaxed and comfortable setting, you could easily sit and enjoy coffee and read a book or work on your laptop all morning. If it was a little closer to our house, I know I'd frequent the little market for last minute dinner supplies often!

I decided to order a cappuccino and fresh fruit parfait with house made granola. The granola was so delicious, it reminded me I need to make some of my own. They serve Blue Bottle Coffee, a San Francisco favorite! And in addition to espresso, they also have slow drip coffee which is Andrew's favorite. It was so relaxing sipping my cappuccino and enjoying a light breakfast. I'll definitely be back! Next time I hope to try one of their breakfast crepes or another special.
