Tommy and Chris Newbury are the fashionable young brothers behind the Reveille Coffee Co. truck that has been serving up a mean Four Barrel drip for almost two years now in Jackson Square. The truck is attractive enough to catch the eye of the design set, while holding the coffee snobs close with its high quality joe. Today, the brothers Newbury share some new interior details about their coming-soon brick and mortar shop in the historic flatiron building on Kearny and Columbus. They also spill the beans about some of the food to be offered. Yes, food.
One of the biggest perks of the new space is an elevated open kitchen that will overlook the coffee bar. The day will start with assorted breakfast pastries, biscuits with jam and butter, and sticky buns made from scratch in the mornings. Lunch options will move into "simply prepared seasonal antipastas and sandwiches," including a tuna conserva sandwich, and a farro salad with beets, avocado, and pistachio. The menu will start small and grow as the cafe does.
Decor-wise, there is a glut of sunshine pouring into the new 900-square-foot space on most days, and the design will harness the light with white ash and matte white tiles on the walls and espresso bar, and wide white oak planks to form the floors. You'll notice the same simple and modern aesthetic of the truck, joined by interior street-facing bar seats, and over twenty seats filling the sidewalks outside. Staff will wear custom-made aprons by Levi's. For now, the plan is to open "somewhere around the 15th of November." Regulars at the truck should note that the large former delivery mobile will stay put on Sansome and Pacific Streets.
