COVID, California Wildfires and a Car Crash, What Else?

When the phone rang at 2:15 in the morning on September 11, 2020, we knew something was terribly wrong, on the other end was a police officer calling to let us know that a car had barreled through our San Francisco Cafe. Initially, we thought we probably needed to board up a few windows as someone was probably drunk, lost control of their car after a night of partying and clipped a window. We were wrong. Our beautiful café went from looking like the photos below to being completely destroyed.

The driver was being actively pursued by two police cars, traveling 70MPH, the wrong way on Market Street. Thank goodness no one was hurt in the accident. It was a shock, and, yes, we have insurance.

How did we deal with something like this happening to one of our beautiful coffee shops? We had to let our customers know the coffee shop is temporarily closed. We had an in-store camera that captured the crash and pulled together a 15-second clip of the accident and set it to music because it is truly unbelievable.

Thank you for the outpouring of support we have received from so many friends and customers, it has meant so much to us!

We hope it is true that bad things come in threes.

Stay well.
