For the past two years Hank has volunteered with our cousin Jonathan at a nearby assisted living residence. Jonathan picks up Hank and they help the rabbi with Saturday morning services. Hank has a small wardrobe of ties to wear so he’s dressed appropriately. This weekend was their last day – Jonathan goes off to college on Friday!

I’m in SF for a couple days, and since I’m still on Eastern time, I’m up early and hunting for coffee. As recommended by my friends, I popped into Spike’s Coffee & Teas.

Donut: Dough is a touch dry, but not sweet, and has slight buttermilk flavor. Frosting is very good with actual distinctive chocolate flavor. Coffee: Excellent. Almond milk available. Overall: Definitely an excellent coffee spot as would be expected. Also a very attractive pastry case to be explored.
