Last year while visiting this cute cafecito spot in the Parkside, Brown Owl Coffee, for the first time I ran into a high school friend. 1990s flashback! I had been wanting to go back since, so last week I had to get some coffee after stopping by at Action Camera, also on Taraval.

In addition to coffee, there are pastries +plenty of teas to chose from, books, no WI-FI, newspapers, a community board +many owls around. During my brief visit, I had a pleasant chat with Ariana +asked her if I could snap a few pictures :)

  1. Oh no! So sorry to see them go before I even had a chance to try... I hope they find a good nest elsewhere...

  2. It's always sad when little coffee shops close, today 6 years ago the Duex Gros Nez in Reno closed it's doors forever.
