Mexican dessert bar FiestaBowls recently made its debut at 2290 Mission St. in the Mission. The new spot specializes in classic Mexican treats served in a bowl, like mangonada (fresh mango, mango sorbet and chili lime salt) and fresas con crema (strawberries with homemade whipped cream). There's an option for guests to build their own bowls, too.

FiestaBowls also offers crepes, shakes and smoothies, as well as savory bowls featuring corn, pork rinds and other toppings. Early notices on Yelp are positive, with a current rating of 4.5 stars.

A standard barber cut at the new salon costs $50, and beard trims are available for $30, while other services include highlights, beard coloring, hair treatments and eyebrow shaping.

With a five-star rating out of 12 reviews, Blade & Bristle has gotten enthusiastic notices from Yelpers in its early going.

Over at 1316 Noriega St. in the Outer Sunset, Fiery Cafe is a new fast-casual spot from the team behind Parkside's Fiery Hot Pot Buffet. It specializes in snacks and sandwiches with an Asian flair — check out the Thai basil chicken sandwich, the kimchi wagyu sandwich, the loaded waffle fries, the taro chips with curry dip, and more.

While it's still early days, Fiery Cafe is drawing positive attention, averaging 4.5 stars across its 18 Yelp reviews.

Finally, there's a new arrival at 854 Stanyan St. in Cole Valley: The Eclectic Collective, a vintage store that has taken over the space of antique store Past Perfect.

Like that shop, The Eclectic Collective offers a mix of secondhand and antique items from a collective of various dealers, including clothes, home decor, furniture, collectibles and more.
