A Haiku for a Drink

Recapitulating some memorable beverages in and around San Francisco, seventeen syllables at a time.

1. Dandelion Chocolate | 740 Valencia St, San Francisco, CA 94110
Hot chocolate
with cookies in a pocket:
a kangaroo drink.

2. Grand Coffee | 2663 Mission St, San Francisco, CA 94110
Looking for caffeine,
found a lovely theater
of style art deco.

3. Boba Guys | 3491 19th St, San Francisco, CA 9411

Balls will cost extra,
succulent and flavourful,
at just fifty cents.

4. Anchor beers | Various locations
Beer is delicious,
diverse and crafty too, in
this part of the world.

5. Barbary Coast Pastry & Coffee | 5 Cyril Magnin St, San Francisco, CA 94102

Six a.m. latte:
For all groggy travellers,
you are a saviour.

6. Bottle Zup | 437 Sutter St, San Francisco, CA 94108
Sip, chew and then own.
Once you suck the last bubble,
the bottle is yours.

7. Cibo | 1201 Bridgeway, Sausalito, CA 94965
Caffeine goes so well,
as Tour de France-ers will tell,
with bicycle rides.

8. Philz Coffee | 549 Castro St, San Francisco, CA 94114
When in the Castro,
coffee tastes like rainbows with
hints of nuttiness.

9. Fume Blanc, Robert Mondavi Winery | 7801 St Helena Hwy, Oakville, CA 94562, United States 
What used to be grapes
now taste just as nippy as
the air they grew in.

10. Coffee Mission / Verve Coffee | 3325 24th St, San Francisco, CA 94110
The best coffee shops
are often found lacking in
a signboard above.

11. DOSA | 995 Valencia St, San Francisco, CA 94110
Thousands of miles flown
for a whisky cocktail in
a place called Dosa.

12. Vita Coco | A grocery store in the Mission District
Electrolytes, they
come at a price, and often
a carbon footprint.

13. Tosca Cafe | 242 Columbus Ave, San Francisco, CA 94133
Do not seek coffee
in Tosca's capuccino;
relish the Bourbon.
