Kainbigan has been providing the Clinton neighborhood with Filipino comfort food since it opened in August. It definitely filled a void but neighbors were still looking for a place to get their morning coffee…until Uptown Juice Company owner Janice Yenpasook opened Cafe Clinton. I stopped by this morning and it’s kind of a permanent pop-up inside the restaurant before lunch starts at 11am. Cafe Clinton is offering “organic coffee from Scarlet City Roasting, which is a woman-owned, green certified, coffee roasting company in West Oakland, scones, cookies, and breads from TART! Bakery and Awesome Bars, which are these amazing granola bars made in San Francisco. And, of course, we are carrying Uptown Juice Company’s organic cold-pressed juices.” You should check it out this week because there’s a grand opening special: a free coffee with purchase of a pastry.
