We remember the good times and good coffee with a young Texas singer, Janis Joplin, who left us way too soon. Her home in San Francisco, 635 Ashbury has been made into a museum. Her neighborhood was centered around the intersection of Haight and Ashbury Streets, where we showcase three terrific coffee houses near that famed corner.

One of Janis Joplin’s earliest gig was in 1963 at Coffee Gallery, 1353 Grant Avenue in North Beach. Listen to a YouTube tape of that early session by Clicking Here.
Coffee Gallery in 2021 is called Maggie McGarry’s, just south of Green and Grant.
