Where’d our sidewalk tables and chairs go? Funny story. The SF Department of Public Works has been very busy lately citing cafes with rogue tables and chairs on the sidewalks. While the city has numerous public nuances, I fail to see how tables and chairs can be anywhere near the top of the list of city issues to address! Regardless, our local inspector has visited Farley’s (and Hazel’s) on at least four occasions to keep the sidewalk free of this undocumented furniture! Thankfully, our parklet has plenty of permitted seating. However, that permit, in true city bureaucracy, does not include the sidewalk. Thus, we are table-free on the sidewalk until our inspector can return to assess the application we have painfully submitted. Until then, enjoy the parklet seating!
Mark your calendar for the 29th Annual Pet Parade! This year, and every year, the parade is on the last Saturday of October: Saturday, October 27 @ 1 pm.
Farley’s in the News
Check out this film made by a recent Nonprofit of the Month organization at Farley’s East, Camp Reel Stories. The talented young women learned film making and editing and produced this video in just a few days!
Taking on new flavor! At Farley’s you can come in for a consistent cup of super awesome coffee all day long. We roast the same delicious beans for both our East and SF cafes! Our House Blend, is what you get in every cup of drip, iced coffee, and espresso drinks with us. But did you also know that we have great single origin beans? We offer them for pour overs! You can also take a bag or three home :). More importantly, we have added a new blend to the line up! It is our Zen Blend. These beans are full of flavor and good karma. This roast is a bit more developed than our House blend, and happily takes on cream and sugar, if that’s your thing. Come into either of our locations and snag a bag today!
Featured Roaster of the Month: Camellia Coffee
Camellia gets its name from the beautiful flowering plants that grow all over this city of Sacramento, CA. Sacramento has a long history as the camellia capital of the world, which we aim to enrich with our sweet, chocolate-y coffees and fun, fresh vibes. What started as a friendship between a roaster and a barista, has blossomed into a friend family with a cafe in an up-and-coming corner of midtown. Delicious coffee prepared with care is a given at Camellia; we don’t take ourselves too seriously. We believe that if you’ve got knowledge, stay hungry for more, but keep things simple, good things will grow.

Farley’s SF Window Boxes: Joe Enright
I am a local San Francisco artist, born and raised and I love drawing inspiration from the city that I love. This collection are my visual poems of San Francisco. In this collection you will find many different locations that I have photographed around the city and then carefully layered into these art pieces. They can be anywhere from 5-40 photographs composited together. I really love making art, and I hope that you enjoy these as much as I did creating them.
