If you work in the Financial District of SF, you should be going to Soup Junkie at least twice a day.
Hung Lam started Soup Junkie as a Vietnamese noodle pop-up in the Ferry Building and now he’s got a permanent spot at 388 Market Street (between Fremont & Beale). They serve french-presses and pour-overs of Bicycle Coffee all day.
Go in the morning and get a cup coffee with a pastry from Starter Bakery or a Dynamo Donut.
Go for lunch, get another cup of coffee and one of their awesome Vietnamese soups or sandwiches.
Plan for a bit of a line, but it’s worth it. You can also order for pick-up.

My older brother Matt has been designing and building a new bike trailer. Wired Magazine did a story about his use of SketchUp for designing stuff.
Here’s our star courier, Tony, taking the trailer out for a test spin.
Bicycle Coffee is now being served at Ono Grindz, a new Hawaiian restaurant on Clement street in San Francisco. Everything on their menu looks good and most plates are around $10. My goal is to try everything.
First item I checked off, the Loco Moco: a big plate of food covered in house-made mushroom gravy. I burn too many calories delivering coffee, I should eat this kind of stuff more often.
For dessert I had apple banana bread pudding topped with a scoop of Bicycle Coffee ice-cream. The owners, Josefa and Bradley, make the ice-cream in-house using our medium roast from Guatemala. You can really taste the flavor profile of our bean in the ice-cream.
Next time I’m taking my wife here for brunch. I’ll either have chicken katsu & waffles, the kimchi fried rice omelette, or kalua huevos rancheros. Accompanied, of course, by a cup of Bicycle Coffee.

The Legendary Jimmy James Newman gave us this beautiful Tricycle some time ago with the mission of making a “Barba-Trike” accessory.

If you’re in the Outer Sunset you’ve either gotten lost in the fog, passed out on the N-Judah, or you’re going surfing. I think people might live out there too.
But here’s another reason to go to the outer reaches of San Francisco, Devil’s Teeth Baking Company at 46th and Noriega. With delicious pastries, sandwiches, and cakes, this bakery is worth the trek. Plus, they’re now serving Bicycle Coffee!
Last week I made our first delivery to Devil’s Teeth. I arrived hungry and worn-out, but left satisfied. I enjoyed a pulled pork sandwhich with spicy coleslaw, their famous donut-muffin, and a cup of our dark roast coffee. The owner insisted I take a cinnamon roll to-go. This place makes me wish I had more than one stomach.
The food is awesome, the staff is super friendly, and they’re now serving Bicycle Coffee…so check it out.

There are lots of reasons to visit Little Vine’s shop in North Beach. They serve cups of Bicycle Coffee, they offer lots of local produce, and their sandwiches always seem to sell out. But now they also carry wine! They’re fully stocked with wine from local, small-production, family-owned wineries.
I suggest sipping on a cup of our coffee while you peruse their wines.
Check out my brother’s new delivery bike. It’s a beach cruiser with a big basket.
Matt about to deliver to some offices in downtown San Francisco.
Arbor Cafe is a relativity new coffee shop in Oakland’s Temescal area. Its a chill cafe with big tables and plenty of indoor bike parking. They have been brewing our coffee since they opened and i hear that they will soon be serving beer. Yeah Hoo! Check out this write up about them.

On Friday we served free coffee at a “ribbon cutting ceremony” for the painting of a new bike lane that runs along Webster Street in downtown Oakland. The crowd was mostly reporters and politicians, all drinking our coffee. The Mayor was there to do the honners with a giant pair of scissors… I thought that was a thing they only did in the movies. We had a chill time and got to use the freshly painted bike lane on our ride back to the roastery. thanks to Bay Area Bikes for inviting us to the event.
