Starting next month, there'll be a new place to get your Blue Bottle fix, and for a good cause to boot. The Book Bay will be opening the Reader's Cafe in Fort Mason next door to its retail store, with proceeds to benefit the Friends of the San Francisco Public Library. FSFPL's communications and advocacy associate Katie Sue Ambellan told SFoodie the organization is aiming for a mid-to-late July opening.
There will be more than just caffeine for bookworms: local wine, beer, and “small-batch artisan” bites from La Cocina businesses will round out the menu. And, judging by the selection they had out at last week's Fort Mason farmer's market, there are some great food and cookbooks available for the low-low.
