Coffee and Food News

Fresh food is always coming out of Farley’s! Did you know we make everything in our Oakland Kitchen, and we deliver it to our San Francisco store? Team work, really does make the Farley’s dream work! What is your favorite salad? We LOVE the Rainbow Soba Salad. It was a special salad of the month, that turned out to be so special, we have decided to keep it full time. It comes with cold soba noodles, fresh crunchy purple cabbage, carrots, edamame, cashews, and microgreens, with a delicious spicy peanut dressing! You can also keep an eye out for our fresh veggie cups. We pair it up with our house-made, lentil cashew hummus, and a tasty dip-style version of our goddess dressing!

Farley’s East Artist of the Month: Beso Khidesheli

Beso Khidesheli is an illustrator and Multimedia Artist best known for his abstract, colorful, & unique style and universally themed subjects. Born in Tbilisi, Georgia, and later raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, Beso’s graphic work is shaped by his upbringing in a home full of creatives—writers and actors alike—and his subsequent immersion within the California’s psychedelic arts scene. Beso’s life has been full of uncertainty, to the point where he has come to appreciate this usually anxiety-inducing feeling in many aspects of his life.

The main subjects in Beso’s work are spatial designs, earth textures, and science fiction-inspired characters. These subjects work together to create a sentiment of uncertainty, and usually each viewer will see something different within the pieces. Evoking new understandings and perceptions; this is truly the driving force behind Beso’s creativity.

Beso Khidesheli’s work can be found in several private collections throughout California, The Phillippines, and in his home country of Georgia. He hosts regular exhibitions in the Bay Area.

Farley’s SF Window Boxes: Ridder Alvarez

Ridder was born in Venezuela and his dad loved photography and cultivated into him.  When he was six years old, he was traveling already looking at the encyclopedias at home. His biggest dream in life by twelve was to see the world heritage sites.

Photography was inculcated by his dad because he loves posing for him and seeing the end results.

He has traveled to 66 countries and has taken his son to 28 countries.

His hobbies are cooking, teaching, working, hiking, traveling overseas, interpreting, recruiting, scouting, investigating, writing inspirational speeches, writing comedy, writing poetry, giving health advices and taking pictures.

Photography was mastered by contemplating and understanding his mishaps while working on his learning curve and taking 300,000 pictures.

His world street photography was born to bring to people’s eyes and minds the world that crosses his eyes.

He  will let his art speaks by itself.

World Street Photography was shaped by his different professions, Civil Engineer, Medical Interpreter, Beer Hauler, Spanish Teacher, Private Investigator, Driver, Recruiter, Inspirational Speaker, Database Designer, Structural Detailer, Contractor, Bus Driver and Comedian.

The decisive moment of his World Street Photography is the result of his lifetime experiences and abilities.
