Provender, a coffee shop from Hillside Supper Club owner Tony Ferrari and his brother Austin Ferrari, is headed to Potrero Hill.
The petite, 300 square-foot space is inspired by the brothers’ upbringing as part of an Italian family, where espresso is consumed multiple times a day. “We’re coffee guys,” said Ferrari. “Our dad is from Italy, so we grew up drinking tons of espresso.” As a result, the coffee menu, using Sightglass coffee exclusively, will be very focused on espresso drinks, although drip coffee will also be available. They’ve also concocted a signature drink called The Maplewood, which is a cold brew coffee that is strained, poured over ice with milk, maple syrup and a dash of pure maple extract for a smokey, sweet flavor.
