More than a neighborhood coffee shop

The KitchenTown Café offers the public a place to learn firsthand about changes percolating in the food system. It’s where customers connect with our makers and their products, an arm’s reach from where they’re made.

Menu Served  8am to 2pm.

Coffee and baked goods all day

Fresh bread available everyday

Farmer’s Market-Inspired

Our café kitchen serves the seasonal best of our Californian foodshed. Think: rustic bistro, lattés included. Oh, and don’t miss weekend brunch.

Breads We Love

Four of the Bay Area’s best bakeries—Backhaus, As Kneaded, BaseCamp, and Portside Bakery— call KitchenTown home, and we couldn’t be luckier. Watch our baker’s rack for their whole loaves and pastries.

Dinner. But only sometimes.

When it comes to an evening meal in the KitchenTown café, we go for the special sometimes. We’re a stage for unique, thoughtful, and sometimes crazy ideas, and we love it. We host popups with special guest chefs, like that time J. Kenji Lopéz-Alt partnered up with Backhaus for a German beer hall–inspired meal, or when Stella Parks served dessert…for dinner (lucky us). Sign up for our newsletter or find us on social media to stay in the know.

A Place to Discover New Favorites.

We’ve stocked our store with goods from our own in-house startups, as well as curated brands from across the country—from plant-based snacks to food waste solutions to alternative proteins. We hope you’ll be as inspired as we are by the stunning abundance of delicious creativity rolling out of the kitchen at KitchenTown, and beyond.
