Lila B. is lucky enough to have set up shop in the garden of the Stable Café, a Mission neighborhood staple in the sunniest part of the city. The hearth room tucked in back is where our classes take place and is the best space in this best place. Rustic charm mingles with modern sensibilities to create an outer-city experience - and when the fire is going - there is a feeling of being transported into another time. Join us and experience it for yourself!
