Eyes on the Street: No, Philz Coffee Is Not a Drive-Thru

A driver crashed into Philz Coffee at Fourth and Berry Streets near the Caltrain Station on Saturday night at about 9:10 p.m., as Bay City News reported. No one was injured, but the highly-popular cafe was reportedly closed until Monday, and an assistant manager told BCN “the area where the glass shattered is boarded off” until it’s repaired.

No word yet on whether the driver will face any penalties other than a higher insurance bill. But if the case of the driver who crashed into a Starbucks in Alameda on the same night is any indication, law enforcement doesn’t consider it to be a crime when someone steers a potentially deadly vehicle over a sidewalk and crashes it into a storefront.
