A Way to My Heart
I’ve adopted a new favorite café haunt, and let me tell you why. Pearl’s International Beverages serves Thai Coffee and has chilled crême brulées that they torch right there at the counter for you, which made me just melt. They also offer a variety of teas, namesake Taiwanese “pearl” drinks, and espresso how ever you like it.
Oh, my, yum. Pearl’s also displays local artwork, offers free Wi-Fi and has installed long bench just for laptop users (hooray for SF WiFi!), outdoor seating for those warmer days, and what makes it even more special is that it’s not hip, trendy, or full of yuppies (there is a Starbucks up the street).
Pearl’s International Beverages is located at 329 W Portal Ave (between 14th and 15th) and is open from M-F 6:30am-11pm; Sa 7am-11pm; Su 8am-9pm.
