Blue Bottle's First South Bay Location Has Arrived in Palo Alto

It's located inside new co-working space Hanahaus.


While they've made headway everywhere from New York to L.A. to Tokyo, the good people of Blue Bottle Coffee had somehow not managed to open a location thus far in Silicon Valley. But as of this week, the wait is over: the first South Bay Blue Bottle has debuted inside HanaHaus, a cafe and co-working space opening tomorrow in the historic former home of the Varsity Theater. The brainchild of software company SAP, it's intended to serve as a hub for entrepreneurs all over the Bay Area, with individual spaces renting for $3/hour and four-person spaces for $10, according to the San Jose Mercury News. Conference rooms, a tech help desk, and a theater space are also part of the complex, which last housed a Borders before the chain went under in 2011.

The HanaHaus Blue Bottle is offering all of the favorites from the other locations, including espresso drinks, a siphon bar, New Orleans iced coffee served from a mini-keg, and baked goods like cookies and Firebrand pretzels. There's also a full menu of cafe bites like Belgian waffles, breakfast sandwiches, and granola for breakfast and fennel-arugula salad and Cubano sandwiches for lunch. Wine and beer is set to come online in late spring or early summer, and the workspace fee is waived with a food or drink purchase. Hours for HanaHaus are Sunday-Thursday, 7 am-9 pm, and Friday-Saturday, 7 am-10 pm.
