Castro nears peak coffee


(Prabhakar Ragde) #1

Wildcraft Espresso Bar is in soft opening on Noe just south of Market, as is Artis Coffee on Castro just south of 18th. They join the relatively recent Hearth, Reveille, and Weaver’s, the relocated Philz (bigger digs on Castro), and of course the ubiquitous Starbucks. There are a few other retailers in the area that make a point of advertising their coffee. Wildcraft is pretty small, basically to-go or stand; Artis is a larger space and looks more like a conventional café.
