Is La Bande a stylish coffee bar, inviting cafe or finely curated market? Let’s just say, it’s a “new fashioned” canteen for all stripes. That’s the charm–and only steps from Civic Center BART. Here, light flows through double-height glass, illuminating Paris green tiles, black-and-white stripes and brass. Northern California’s ambrosial bounty is on display, from hand pies filled with homemade jams to grilled slabs of sourdough. Linger over a craft beer around communal tables. Drop by for curated provisions. We promise the Counter Culture espresso is always pulled how you like.
