Less than a year in the 'hood and this shopping outpost (a sister store to Hayes Valley's Acrimony) has already delivered a heavy dose of style — and caffeine — to North Beach. The boutique-slash-coffee shop at Union and Montgomery (trust, it's worth the hike!) serves up piping-hot cups of Blue Bottle alongside equally sizzling wares for both guys and gals, plus quirky home goods. Look for pieces by Rachel Comey, T by Alexander Wang, Karen Walker, Jeffrey Campbell, and more.
ACRE/SF, 301 Union Street (at Montgomery Street); 415-875-9590.
