San Francisco’s Sightglass Coffee has opened its second retail bar and roastery, inside a 1,200-square-foot former factory space on the east side of the Mission District.
Decidedly scaled back from Sightglass’ 7,000-square-foot flagship facility that opened in 2010, the new spot nonetheless takes advantage of the vertical space, including a wood ceiling, a wall of street-facing windows and a tiled floor with some custom touches. The interior includes padded bench seating that winds and flows along the perimeter, providing a mix of tabletop seating and more open social/waiting space.
Owned by Oregon transplants Justin and Jerad Morrison, Sightglass will be roasting coffees for the new location on-site with a vintage 5-kilo Probat.
The Mission District Sightglass Coffee is at 3014 20th Street in San Francisco.
