A popular gathering spot since opening last year in North Park, Communal Coffee will bring its modern-bohemian charm to South Park next month, planting its second location on Fern Street and activating one of the neighborhood’s long-vacant lots. The original University Avenue location shares a patio with North Park Nursery, and seating in South Park will be spread out in a similarly lush, secret garden setting.

Founder Jen Byard has repurposed a vintage 1959 Shasta Trailer into an espresso bar and pastry shop that will service the outdoor cafe and community space, which will also contain a stage that will host live performances, movie nights, and other events. Known for its latte flights and other of-the-moment drinks, Communal Coffee will continue to feature San Francisco’s award-winning Sightglass Coffee. New additions to the menu, which ranges from pastries and granola bowls to sweet and savory toast variations, will be an assortment of freshly-baked doughnuts and bagels from North Park’s Nomad Donuts. Communal Coffee South Park will also contain a retail shop stocked with branded merchandise, coffee brewing equipment and accessories.
