Named in honor of the women in owner Paulo Acosta Cabezas’s life, Mamá Art Cafe creates a local hub for the output of creative energy and the intake of savory snacks. Mamá's baristas brew a lineup of specialty fair-trade organic coffees, with beans culled from Berkeley Coffee and Tea and served up hot and fresh from an array of roasts, flavors, and magic-beanstalk origins. The intimate café setting boasts an interior adorned with local and international artwork—with past art exhibitions showcasing Marta Ayala's paintings and Charles Anselmo's photographs—and the cafe regularly entertains with creative performances, such as dinner tango routines and live jazz music. Mamá Art Cafe's tireless effort to give back to the community earned the eatery a shout-out from then-Mayor Gavin Newsom with a 2010 Latino Heritage Award for Achievement in Business, as well as honors at the 2011 Annual Hispanic Business Salute.

Progressive Grounds Thirty years ago, Aziz Benarafa crafted organic pasta in Paris. Cut to ten years later, and he’s cooking at the affluent Sheraton Moana Surf Rider Hotel in Waikiki. That’s between stints working in the kitchens of luxury cruise ships and as a personal chef for wealthy families. In 2001, Aziz decided to bring his talents to San Francisco and open Progressive Grounds with his co-owner Marco. But despite settling down, Aziz remains a roamer in spirit and his menu reflects that. In addition to the expected java drinks, pastries, and treats indigenous to most coffee houses, he and his staff also serve Middle Eastern specialties such as falafel and kefta sandwiches, and croque monsieur, a dish inspired by his time in France. Today, guests can grab a sandwich, a few scoops of Mitchell’s Ice Cream, or an Italian soda and enjoy the community vibe at one of Progressive Grounds’ two locations. Both outposts boast free wi-fi, while SFstation.com lauds the original location in Bernal Heights for its eccentric, homey accents, including a dentist’s chair, a yellow brick fireplace, and a backyard garden where patrons can grab wood to stoke the fire themselves or whittle a gift in lieu of a tip.
