Five Star Coffee and Chocolates

I saw something posted on this board a long time ago about this new-ish place over on Devisidero and Oak. I was going to a meeting in the neighborhood and decided to pop in, and to my surprise and delight, behind the counter stood my favorite guy who mixed the best hot cocoa at my neighbood chocolate shop (xox truffles, lucky me). Turns out he's the OWNER of Five Star and remembered me from Northbeach. He let me try his new flavored truffle, Blackberry, which was delicious and gave me excellent iced coffee. If you're ever in the neighborhood, stop by and support Santos and his delicious truffles. (Almost exact same set up as xox but cheaper. I wonder what XOX thinks of that?)

  1. Thanks for posting. This is in my hood and I've walked by but haven't stopped in yet. I worried that they might be too close to the new Delessio/Faletti complex with all their baked goods and treats (not to mention Peet's). Divisadero gets better 'n better.
