Amanda Michael has shaped an awesome lifetime in this neighborhood, and thanks to Jane — our neighboring cafe — she’s not going anywhere soon. When it came time to start up her own operation (after having worked high-end hospitality in San Francisco for decades), Amanda knew she wanted to create a boutique cafe here that served great coffee, freshly baked goods and a very healthy menu option for breakfast, lunch and dinner. “It just made sense here, because for years I found myself going out to the Mission for good coffee, wondering why…” Not only has she done a splendid job with Jane, packed always with a crowd/line, but we’re lucky to call her our neighbor. Amanda looks out for those at CANOPY, and for any of you with a hearty appetite throughout the day. Her goods and hospitality are always comforting.
