Best coffee selections ever from small growers. Changing selection as seasons crops change (Heart Coffee). It hasn’t lost the unique taste in the roasting process. The food is imaginative and really outstanding, every single time. Best homemade pickles ever. Surprising salads and cookies. Music selection is uniques and really fabulous.

Bartavelle Virtual Tip Jar

To all of you lovely people who have asked how you can help. We are taking contributions for our staff, to be distributed equally among the workers. Also working on more pop ups and a to-go/delivery model, so will keep you posted on that.

Thank you so much for all the love and support you have shown us all during this time. Stay well and safe, and we'll see you when we can!

Bartavelle Hi y’all, As you may know we’re one of countless businesses that had to make the difficult decision to close for at least the next few weeks while we all hunker down and try to minimize the spread of this damn thing. Thing is, we can’t work from home, and while Bartavelle was able to come up w...

we may be closed for now, but you can still tip our amazing staff! link to paypal pool in bio. ❤️ y’all, and stay tuned for updates, we’re trying to get creative . . .

Tomorrow, Thursday from 11-3 in our annex space at 1609 San Pablo Avenue - Bartavelle / bar sardine Provisions. This is an experiment to see what a to-go model might look like for us, as well as a way for you to bring home some delicious items. Marykate of the future @sesametinybakery baked off some granola, cookies and other goodies. We have a giant shipment of fresh @heartroasters coffee beans to sell ya. (we can grind it for you if you like!). I’m gonna brew some drip coffee too. We’re also selling bar sardine wines to go, jars of pickles, lebneh, etc., etc. And we can sell you a gift card that you can save for when we get open again, in whatever incarnation we can manage! Thanks y’all, stay safe and remember that we’re all together in our solitude.

It is with a heavy heart that we make this announcement: today, Monday 3/16 will be our last day open until it’s safe to come out of of our homes and close the now-crucial social distance.
We’re running shorter hours, 8-2, being super on top of sanitization efforts and serving everything to-go only.

Our first instinct was to try and stay open to provide the community with some semblance of human comfort and normalcy, but these aren’t normal times, and it’s become clear that what’s needed is for us all to sacrifice the very thing that we in our industry provide: togetherness. Physical togetherness, at any rate. It has never been more important to think collectively and to check in on people we care about, to support each other from afar.
Our industry is in a lot of pain right now, and we’re no exception. Stay tuned for information about a little general store situation that we’re putting together in lieu of bar sardine this week, including bottles of wine to take home, a fresh shipment of @heartroasters coffee, etc. We’re trying to raise some money so we can do right by the 19 incredible people that work for us. ❤️ y’all! Be safe. -Bartavelle

We’re open today, and we’ve implemented even more hardcore safety procedures. We’re lucky to have a talented in-house sign maker in @goatinbirdland. We’re closely monitoring the situation and evaluating our options. Stay tuned! @ Bartavelle Coffee & Wine Bar

It's almost spring! @bartavellecafe is trying to keep everything on the sunnyside, in spite of the crazy time we are all living through.
We want y'all to know that although we are not succumbing to the fear, we are working extra hard to keep everything clean, shiny and virus-free. Lots of hand washing and extra sanitizing of surfaces, ipads, menus, restroom.

All precautions are being taken to keep all safe and healthy.
#bartavellecafe #loveallyall #takecareofeachother

Uh oh, plumbing issue closing the kitchen for the rest of the day! Coffee drinks, wine, quick sandwiches and cookies available though!

Update! Tuesday morning OPEN!

[02/28/20]   Our dear friend and favorite cake maker Marykate is working to open her tiny cake shop! If you've tried her wares through her cake club at Kebabery or Bartavelle, or any of her other treats here and at Camino, you KNOW.

Her kickstarter is doing great, AND we know that the bigger the foundation you have when starting a new small business, the better your chances of making it through the inevitable bumps in the road.

we hope you'll join us in giving what you can! 💓

Whoops, here's the link:
