Sip on Literary Cocktails at Two Sisters in Hayes Valley
Inspired by the real-life adventures of two Northern Californian sisters in Krakow, Vienna, Paris, and Brooklyn, Two Sister Bar and Books is a coffee bar, restaurant, and community space in Hayes Valley.
The cozy interior and good food makes for an inviting cafe, one where you can order a dish and a glass of wine and linger over a good book for hours—pick one from any of the stacks around the place.
The menu changes seasonally, but expect a Californian take on American comfort food: savory bread pudding with asparagus, spring onion, and goat cheese; an English cheddar and prosciutto grilled cheese sandwich with tomato soup; strawberry and arugula salad; and pan-seared fish of the day.
Be sure to try their cocktails, or, better yet, join their monthly Books and Booze club; members meet the last Wednesday of the month to talk about the book and sip on a new signature cocktail.
Two Sisters Bar and Books is open Tuesdays through Thursdays from 4 pm to 11 pm; Fridays from 4 pm to midnight; Saturdays from noon to midnight; and Sundays from noon to 10 pm.

Cocktail, Grilled Cheese, Graphic Novel
I'm almost reluctant to write this post. Two Sisters Bar & Books is a tiny and wonderful place. The picture above is from a recent rainy Saturday. Blissful, right? The cocktail was a Harvest Manhattan, which had a touch of nutmeg. Why potentially flood this gem by posting a highlight? Because the majority of the time when you visit this bar you meet the owner, and I want her success to be out of the park.
