Review Outtakes: A Closer Look at Duende’s Bodega

One of the pitfalls of writing restaurant reviews and being a long-winded person in general is that often not everything makes it onto the page. Such was the case with Duende (full review forthcoming), whose attached “bodega” (a combination wine/olive oil retailer and high-end coffee shop) is a plenty-ambitious undertaking all on its own — and worthy of a separate write-up.

The Bodega at Duende is, at its core, your garden-variety hipster cafe, complete with third-wave coffee pedigree (with beans from Santa Cruz-based roastery Verve) and a small selection of house-made baked goods.
