NEWTREE has opened its second retail location in downtown San Francisco. Located
at the corner of Battery St and California St, NEWTREE continues to offer an urban oasis for people to engage all senses, reconnect with the harmony of nature and savor life with no compromise.
From floor to ceiling, the NEWTREE café features sustainable, recycled, repurposed, non-toxic and energy-efficient materials. The bright and modern space is inspired by nature and creates an intriguing invitation with its glowing recycled glass counter and handcrafted bamboo canopy. Sustainable bamboo is also used for all the built-in cabinetry, shelving and stools. In addition to energy-efficient lighting and appliances, zero-VOC paint covers the walls and reclaimed pebbles make up the floor. "Constructing this new space in a sustainable way is still as important to us as our menu and products being organic & Fairtrade," said Benoit de Bruyn, founder and CEO of NEWTREE. "We wanted to go further by creating an incredibly special experience where people can savor delicious, healthy food in an environment of harmony. We call this "savoring life with no compromise" and it has been a thrill to bring it to life."
Half café and half chocolate shop, NEWTREE treats guests to a wall of chocolate where one can sample any flavor and savor the aromas of its chocolate innovations. "In the future, customers will be able to craft their own chocolate bars and every month we will elaborate a unique bar" said Benoit de Bruyn. NEWTREE's award-winning products include gourmet Belgian chocolate bars,
spreads and soft waffle cookies that are developed with strict requirements on taste, quality and ethical sourcing. Crafted with organic and Fairtrade cacao from the Dominican Republic and Peru, NEWTREE chocolate is a proprietary blend with intense cacao flavor, fruity notes and sustainable ingredients.
Extending this philosophy to their new café menu, NEWTREE offers unique gourmet & healthy food and beverages made fresh daily. Classic recipes are made healthier with local and organic ingredients, responsible portions, and less fat and sugar. The sustainable
menu features a selection of pastries, salads, sandwiches, soups and snacks, along with coffee, chai, matcha, tea and hot chocolate. Signature items made with NEWTREE chocolate include brownies, mendiants, Liege waffle, muffins, florentins and vegan hot chocolate.
The NEWTREE café is open Monday through Friday from 6.30am to 6pm. 311 California St, San Francisco, 94104 CA. The first NEWTREE café is located at 1 Ecker Pl, corner of Market & Stevenson Street.
