Spotted SF / North Beach / Public Barber Salon


I have yet to get a cut and color at this place, but I stumbled on this space as I was re-discovering Grant Ave on my daily wander. I glanced through the window and saw the massive display of books and popped right on in. I was so warmly greeted as I arrived and inquired about their services. Even Steve the owner came out to chat with me and offered me a beer, as I described my latest photo project. What a super nice guy and what a great way to display thousands of books he got for a bargain on eBay! And there’s even an old Pepsi machine that serves out soda and beer as you sit and enjoy your service, too.
