Lower Nob Hill residents will have new plant-based dining options when the Inner Richmond's Nourish Cafe expands to the neighborhood next month.
The existing location at 189 6th Ave. (near California Street) has been dishing out healthy, vegan options in a cafe setting since 2015, owner Sarah Bacon told us.
The cafe was the first go in the restaurant business for Bacon, a former tech worker, and her co-owner, personal trainer Brighton Miller.
“We have been really fortunate to have a great response at the 6th Avenue location,” Bacon said, noting that the pair feel confident about the concept, and ready to bring it to another neighborhood.
Bacon and Miller weren't specifically targeting Lower Nob Hill, but the space at 1030 Hyde St., which bakery Flour & Co. departed in January, “had good energy and seemed like a good opportunity,” Bacon said.
The menu will initially be identical to what is offered in the Richmond, with açai bowls, smoothies, fresh juices and toasts for breakfast, and healthy salads, sandwiches, wraps, and soups for lunch.
The new space is larger, and Bacon hopes to eventually expand its offerings, adding a breakfast bowl and serving the popular grilled 'cheese' all day, instead of just after breakfast.
The larger kitchen will also enable the business to expand its catering efforts and extend its delivery range.
“We’re looking forward to being able to capture the downtown and SoMa areas” through different delivery services, Bacon said.
Bacon and Miller hope to open the new location in the first or second week of May. Hours will be 7am-7pm daily.
