Southern Exposure Looking East

On 20th Street looking East.

You’ve got to hand it to Vera Cort who gave Southern Exposure a great lease on the corner space in 2009 that began  the refurbishing of a lot of old and empty buildings.

The longtime business there, Atlas Cafe, across the street from Southern Exposure, has not lost out. It remains packed despite the new competition from Sightglass Coffee, the Salumeria and Central Kitchen.

    Love the Atlas Cafe. It would be great if ML could do a story on them. They’ve been a great stable in the area, with great food, great coffee, great patio and super non-pretentious vibe.

    Atlas is cool…an old standby, which offers wifi, unlike sightglass (boo.)

    As for SoEx, their art pgrms totally suck at the new location. I’m so tired of rehashed and forced 3rd rate post modern videos and installations! FFS give it a rest. At their old location near 17th street the art programming was much better.

    Also, La Raza on 24th street, quality of art pgrms went downhill there too. Same forced and heavy handed post modern crap; too much.
