The Castro’s coffee corridor is officially booming, with today’s opening of Reveille Coffee’s second permanent location bringing a high-profile new player to the mix.

Local metal- and woodworker Jeff Burwell assisted with the design, which echoes the other location’s clean and modern look via light ash woods, cedar, and Mexican cement tile for the coffee bar area. White metal stools make up the seating at the central wooden bar and tables run the length of the space toward the back wall, which is made up of stacked split wood. Up front, the spot sports a patio area that opens right onto 18th Street so patrons can engage in the Castro’s favorite activity: people-watching.

Chris Newbury says that he hopes to make Reveille a community gathering space that’s not just about grabbing a quick cup of joe to go, but is also good for spending a leisurely lunch hour or setting up the laptop to get some work done.
