After a decade of selling espresso at a small takeaway cafe in Mission, Grand Coffee is opening a second, larger cafe down the street.
It opens this spring at 2544 Mission St. between 21st and 22nd Streets, one block from the original cafe. The larger space means customers can sit inside and have a cup of coffee. While the original location is limited to espresso drinks and batch coffee at 200 square meters, the second cafe will add specialty drinks made with ingredients drawn from the owners’ cultural backgrounds, such as: B. Mexican hot chocolate or coffee with cardamom syrup. Co-owners Nabeel Silmi, Adrian Lopez, and Kimberly Kim are Palestinian Americans, Mexican Americans, and Korean Americans.
