Hollow

…Is not so very hollow at all.   In fact, quite the contrary.  Stuffed fashionably with rustic trinkets, fresh soap, tasty goodies and cozy low watt light bulbs, Hollow is true to its quainter meaning of the word; A tiny nook tucked underneath a traditional San Francisco apartment on 16th and Irving.  I might have walked right by if not for the wafting sent of Ritual coffee and it’s abnormal cuteness.  As you walk in through the old green door you are greeted by 3 small wooden tables, a friendly smile from behind the espresso machine, warm ambient light and organically crafted walls and low ceiling adorned with variety hanging paraphernalia.  Also true to its name, the Hollow is tiny.  Not too tiny in my opinion, but rather adorably comfortably so… that’s hard to beat!  Yes, Dawn, owner and graphic designer, nailed this idea: Hollow is a cafe dream!  So, if you’re in the area and want an amazing cup of steaming espresso, a pastry or cookie (the Guinness cupcakes caught my gaze), and eye candy galore come and take a peek!  Happy Holidays!
