Equator Coffees, the Marin-based B-Corp coffee roaster, has announced the re-opening of their San Francisco café at 222 2nd Street in SOMA. This marks the brand’s return to the neighborhood, and 11th café now open statewide keeping their momentum from this summer’s opening on Fairfax Ave in Los Angeles.
Before the pandemic, this location was a thriving hub of activity, with employees from LinkedIn and other neighbouring tech giants stopping by. “We believe that now is the right time for Equator to re-open, given the promising uptick in office attendance, the success of the recent Dreamforce Conference, the city’s Vacant to Vibrant programme, and the efforts of other food and beverage destinations such as Devil’s Teeth Baking Company, Rosalind Bakery, Teranga, Yokai SF, and Holbrook House,” said Equator Coffees’ CEO JP Lachance. “We’re looking forward to supporting the revitalisation of the area, and bringing back specialty coffee tastings, events and pop-ups to the space to help rebuild the community in the SOMA neighbourhood.”
The now reopened café is situated in a public open space in the lobby of the LinkedIn offices with stadium seating, tables, and wi-fi for flexible remote work, and striking art by Frank Stella. The café will be serving up specialty coffees, seasonal beverages, fresh pastries, and Equator’s Frittata breakfast sandwich.
Equator Coffees in SOMA is located at 222 2nd Street San Francisco, CA 94105. Located on the corner of 2nd & Howard, this café is just steps away from offices and landmarks, including the Salesforce Transit Center, the Moscone Center, SF MOMA, Apple and Asana offices.
