Open only two weeks, Dogpatch Caffe is a surprising discovery at San Francisco’s newest terminal.
On a recent trip,, I had the good fortune to fly into SFO’s new terminal. Spacious and well lit, at late evening, many of the retail stores and dining establishments were already closed. But like a bright beacon, I suddenly spied organic fresh food ahead.
The first of what parent company Guava & Java hopes will be a chain of top quality airport cafes, this culinary oasis’s fresh organic salads were made with the kind of ingredients this organic gardener would find either in her own garden or in her favorite farmer’s market.
The selections were both colorful and diverse – bright green curly kale with sliced fresh apple, seasoned well with olive oil and spices, sliced baked orange kaboucha squash with pumpkin seeds and sauteed onions, as well as other colorful and scrumptious looking selections.
Delectable healthy food that’s sustainably sourced – at reasonable prices at the airport? Hard to imagine but incredibly welcome. And the night manager at Dogpatch said they try to stay open a little later for those travelers who fly in the evening.
Add courtesy and really putting the customer first and Patchwork Cafe has a terrific winning combination. Be sure to look for them the next time you fly into or through San Francisco. You’ll be glad you did.
