In a city replete with LGBTQ-owned coffee shops and roasteries - shout-outs to the stalwart Pinhole and region-wide powerhouse Equator - one stands out for its sheer pluck. A combination art gallery and cafe that isn’t nearly as satanic as its name or address (66 Sixth St.) suggest, Pentacle is a place for queer-punk bike couriers to re-caffeinate on their rounds, especially when venturing into Downtown where nearly all the alternatives are national chains. Walk in and be greeted by a fabulous Art Nouveau mural, too sweet to be called homoerotic, of two mystical-looking men about to smooch. And they say Sixth Street can be a harsh place.
