Thanks for the Great Times at Heath

For four years, our guests’ conversations, laughter, and barks filled the cavernous atrium adjacent to Heath Ceramics’ San Francisco factory. On Sunday, we closed our tiny 250-square-foot coffee bar there, setting our sights on our new South Park cafe, which will open this fall.

At 1,395 square feet, our new cafe will better accommodate our ever-growing coffee and food menu. But it can’t replace the wonderful memories we’ve made with you at Heath.

Here are just a few of our favorites.

Our coffee bar operated not more than 100-yards away from industrial-sized kilns. We used Heath's mugs and plates to serve our coffees.

Heath was the only one of our cafes that allowed dogs to join their owners. #dogsofbluebottle

There were dogs of all sizes.

There were exceptionally happy dogs, too.

We always loved seeing our regulars and greeting newcomers.

We liked seeing our co-workers, too, smartly dressed in shades of blue.

We will miss you, but we hope you will visit us at our other cafes and become new regulars there.

Thanks to all of our baristas, who brought joy and deliciousness into this space from morning until night.

And to our dear guests—thank you for spending time with us at Heath. We will strive to bring the hospitality and warmth of Heath to our next San Francisco cafe at 2 South Park. It’s conveniently located next to a small park for our canine friends. So you should bring them, too.   

See you soon.
