Four Barrel Portola

Yet another unlikely spot for a dramatic sunset in SF.

Four Barrel recently expanded to one of the most counter intuitive locations imaginable in San Francisco, 2 Barrows St right off San Bruno Avenue, directly abutting 101. The spot couldn’t be more out of the way except for freeway drivers but it’s the ultimate in San Francisco neighborhood existence, tiny, exposed concrete, and a great outdoor seating area at the cul de sac that terminates at 101.  The coffee is everything you’d expect from Four Barrel, high quality and high acid. Since this outlet is defined by location pull off the freeway or stop by before jumping on 101 south. Plus a walk down Portola reveals yet another Asian commercial strip that needs to be plundered for its culinary highlights.

Yup, that’s the sound wall on 101.
