This Bernal Heights corner coffee shop serves Verve coffee, Linea espresso, and a rotating third option from a list of guest roasters. The space is cozy and artsy with rainbow-colored walls, murals, and rotating artwork on display from local artists.
Pinhole’s colorful, kaleidoscope-paneled wall, abundance of succulents, vintage camera equipment as decor, and tree trunks that double as chairs and tables makes it a dream destination for San Franciscans seeking a coffee fix and a place to pose for that perfect lazy Sunday Instagram pic. Even better, the Cortland Avenue shop is a place where people actually go to enjoy company and conversation, perhaps sparked by the Linea espresso drinks and the abundance of pastries from local bakeries (including vegan and gluten-free options), but probably because of the purposeful lack of WiFi and outlets. Prefer to get your caffeine fix outside? There’s a parklet for that—although, like many parklets in SF, it needs to either be revised or taken down. If you want to help support those efforts, there’s a GoFundMe.
