Following the success of their original Nourish Cafe in the Inner Richmond, chef Brighton Miller and partner Sarah Bacon are expanding to Nob Hill, with a location planned for the former Flour & Co. space (1030 Hyde St).
Like its older sibling, the cafe will be 100 percent plant-based, offering a selection of vegan baked goods, acai bowls, smoothies, bowls, salads, sandwiches, and wraps with protein like “tuna” made from seeds and nuts. However, second location is much roomier, which will allow the duo some new menu items like warm grain bowls and more baked goods, as well as expanded catering operations. Also new will be the addition of espresso drinks made with almond milk and Stumptown Coffee, and kombucha on tap.
It’s an interesting move to open a vegan cafe in the place of a bakery that used ample amounts of butter and sugar. “We’re really excited about the space,” Miller told Eater SF. “It’s half a block away from a hospital, and there's a younger crowd in the lower nob hill area, too.” It will also be another access point for Tartine Bread and Josey Baker Bread, just a few of the local purveyors used by the cafe.
The location is directly in the path of Russian and Nob Hill commuters, as well as shoppers at nearby Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods. It’s also the only clean-eating spot on that side of the hill, making it an ideal pit stop for neighbors in search of meat-and-dairy-free sustenance. The menu will also be available for order via all the usual channels (Postmates, etc).
The opening day is slated for the first week of May; stay tuned. When it opens, hours will be Monday-Thursday, 6:30 a.m.-7 p.m. Friday from 6:30 a.m.- 3 p.m; they'll also be open for brunch on weekends from 8 a.m.- 3 p.m.
