The mid July opening of the Blue Bottle outpost inside Spin City laundromat at 26th and Sanchez is making Noe residents feel hip. But it’s also a huge plus for prospective Noe home buyers and renters, who apparently have been stopping at what’s technically called Spin City Launderette and Coffee and asking about the neighborhood. That’s making barrista and coffee space owner Maricar a Noe ambassador of sorts. How cool is it to be able to walk around a neighborhood and find a sort of in-person Yelp to talk to?
Maricar is happy to chat about all the good aspects of the neighborhood. She didn’t hesitate to bestow some pretty cool treats upon my two Cairn Terriers, who were happy to swarm around her all afternoon:
Maricar is leasing out the space within Spin City, and I think it’s an excellent blend of the practical and the social. Noe residents have a new hub along Sanchez—not to mention access to premium, local coffee—and a small business is born. Let’s hope to see more of these types of businesses sprout in San Francisco.
