Genentech Employees in South San Francisco, CA, have a unique new open-air option for breakfast and lunch.
Located about a quarter of a mile from the main campus, the new Edge café overlooks the Bay Trail, which stretches for nearly 16 miles along the “edge” of the San Francisco Bay.
The Edge offers meals with a view from 200 outdoor and 200 indoor seats. In addition to indoor communal spaces for gatherings and community building, the variety of outdoor activity spaces includes basketball, bocce ball, and shuffleboard courts, and even a putting green. The 7,000-square-foot kitchen and dining hall offers lunch options such as short ribs from the Korean Barbecue station, house-made falafel at the Vegging Out station, and fish and chips with garlic fries at the Bay Shack station.
The Edge will be Genentech’s first “zero waste to landfill” café on campus. This means that everything the Bon Appétit team serves, including packaging and cutlery, will be recyclable or compostable.
