It’s time to get your bagel on. Wise Sons has officially announced that October 31st (Halloween, that is) will be the opening date of its latest location.
As we reported this past summer, 537 Octavia St. is the lucky new home of the beloved SF bagel chain, meaning Hayes Valley will benefit from traditional, quality bagels (so good they rival any NYC bagelry) as well as Stumptown coffee and an assortment of teas.
According to Hoodline, the new space will continue on with Wise Sons’ sleek, dark wood designs, clearly gathering inspiration from the old-school Jewish Delis the company reveres. We think it’s safe to say your morning bagel and coffee needs are covered, Hayes Valley. Get excited.

The Jewish empire continues to rise with SF's Wise Sons' to expand another location on their watch.
Hoodline reports that they've taken over the lease of Artis, the wee cafe at 537 Octavia Street, and a Wise Sons location — likely a bagelry and cafe, like the one they just opened in Larkspur this week at the Marin County Mart.
One cool thing about this build-in is Wise Sons' plans to staff the original Artis employee's as full fledged Wise Sons' employees. Sources also confirms that unless Wise Sons wants to go through some major Planning rigamarole, they're going to want to stick with just "limited restaurant use" at the Octavia space, so this likely won't be a full-fledged deli location—though the Wise Sons team has not yet confirmed nor denied this.
Wise Sons meanwhile now has five locations with this one, including their outpost at the Jewish Museum, the Fillmore bagel bakery, and their 24th Street deli flagship.
