Fat Angel flies in

Fat Angel's golden mascot at Fillmore and O'Farrell.

A new cafe and wine bar — Fat Angel — is now open in the Fillmore Jazz District behind Starbucks at 1740 O’Farrell. And it’s promising to be a neighborhood place.

“Fat Angel was born out of a passion for the Fillmore District,” say the owners, who live nearby and have made the neighborhood a key part of their business plan. “Fat Angel’s mission is to become the Fillmore’s benchmark in food, service, price and atmosphere.”

Their mascot — a honey of a golden angel — was rescued and repurposed, like much of the interior, from a previous life in another part of town.
