Our third San Francisco location to open is our Van Ness location, situated at the intersection of Geary Blvd and Van Ness Ave, two of San Francisco's essential thoroughfares. Formerly home to Zim's Coffee Shop, the Van Ness Mels location opened in 1998, quickly becoming a popular late night spot in the neighborhood.
Next door you'll find the historic San Francisco hotel, The Opal, famous for it's alleged haunted fifth floor. Steps away you'll find the AMC Van Ness 14 Theatres, a favorite for movie goers and architecture fans. Nearby are some of the best music venues in the city: The Great American Music Hall, The Fillmore, and The Warfield Theatre.
Ideal for out of town visitors, the Van Ness Mels is centrally located to many of the city's well- known neighborhoods and attractions. With easy access to Highway 101, you're minutes away from all the best San Francisco has to offer.
