Live Music Every Friday Night!

March 16, 2009, Mercury Cafe  opened. This photo was taken at 7 am, when we first opened our doors. Ten years later, we’re still here. No  small feat for a little local, independent cafe. We’ve seen many changes. We’ve been through many changes. So we celebrate.

Community Nights at Mercury

The last Friday of every month will be our community night where we feature guests–might be political, might be artistic, might be activist, might be all of the above–and people can drop by, enjoy drink and food, and meet the neighbors.

Read below and see what’s happening.

New stuff at the Mercury Cafe…

Mercury Café’s Friday Night Jazz Series

An evening of music on Friday nights, 7-10 pm



 The Tree of Life: An Evening in Support of the Kurdish People

Speakers include

Friday, December 6, 6:30 to 10:00 p.m.

Why: Because we support one another, near and far. And because we care. And because in a very meaningful way we are there, and they are here with us as well. Which is why the café will be serving up homemade organic Kurdish hot-and-spicy red lentil soup with pita bread (for $5, merely), and we always have beer and wine. Be there, or be wherever you are. We’ll be with you there, too.

 Donations at the door to benefit the Kurdish Red Crescent

The Kurdish Red Crescent is the primary provider of medical care and aid for refugees who have fled from attacks by ISIL and the Syrian government.


 And Remember: 

Mercury Cafe is now open late Fridays (see above). Great selection of draft beers and wine. And those tasty sandwiches. And soups. And biscuits. And scones.

And don’t forget, if you’re a SF Bike Coalition Member, you get 10 percent off food purchases at Mercury Cafe, from scones to sandwiches.
