EaterSF notes that the renovations being undertaken with Cafe du Nord on Market Street near Sanchez may involve Ritual Roasters.
apparently, they are working with Ritual Roasters on the space, which will include outdoor seating and quick take-away grub. Also on tap is an art viewing space for local musician-artists.
Also much-delayed Castro old-time favorite The Patio, if one can call a ten-year rebuilding hiatus a delay, may be looking for a restaurant operator now. Owner Les Natali is quoted as looking for a Mel’s Diner type menu. Uhh, let me say “yuck!” Maybe he does need to keep the place under further “renovations.”
At this point, my vote is for another Toast, or perhaps a Chloe’s. Yeah, you can never get into Chloe’s – and I love the banana walnut pancakes. And the firefighters love it! Well, maybe that is because they are half a block from the fire station off Church, but hey. You never know.
