2. Frog Hollow
Says the restaurant: “Frog Hollow Farm Cafe is an extension of Frog Hollow Farm in Brentwood, California. At our farm-to-table cafe in the historic Ferry Building, our new and repeat guests enjoy a unique experience-seasonal sandwiches, pastries, and salads, prepared daily in-house using fruit ingredients from our farm and other local farms.
In addition, we also sell organic conserves, olive oil, and freshly baked goods. We are looking for an energetic, reliable, customer-friendly, food-loving team member.”
Says the restaurant: “Classic American doughnuts and top-notch staff named us one of the top 5 doughnut shops in the country, by the FoodNetwork. Since opening in 2013, we will have opened three storefronts and a fleet of food trucks that run on a weekly route; we are thirsty for more!
Our Doughnut Enthusiasts obtain a high level of product knowledge and offer a level of customer service that is rare and unique. Our baristas are carefully trained by our coffee partner, Equator, to learn how to perfectly create a handcrafted coffee to then pair with our artisan style doughnuts! Our team thrives in a fun, upbeat environment enjoyed by both staff and customers alike.”
Says the coffeeshop: “ In 2005, when corporate coffee dominated American culture, Ritual unknowingly started a fun and crazy revolution that would ultimately help launch the new coffee movement. We buy 90+% of our beans direct from our producer partners, setting the highest standard in the industry. This makes sure we get our hands on the best beans in the world, but more importantly, makes sure our farmers maintain the quality of life they deserve.
Now a bona fide San Francisco original, we’ve also earned our iconic status as one of the best coffee roasting companies in the world. The mission of Ritual Coffee is simple: to make people happy by giving them the best coffee experience they’ve ever had. Ritual roasts in SoMa, and has 6 cafes in San Francisco and Napa.”
5. Brixton SF
Says the restaurant: “A Welcome Refuge. Stiff drinks. Scrumptious eats. A kick-drum backbeat. Slake your thirst and satisfy your food craving at Brixton – San Francisco’s newest haunt. Located in the heart of Cow Hollow, Brixton is vim for the palette and vigor for the pulse.”
Says the restaurant: “sweetgreen is on a mission to build healthier communities by connecting people to real food. We passionately believe that real food should be convenient and accessible to everyone.
Every day in each sweetgreen, our 3,500 team members make food from scratch, using fresh ingredients and produce delivered that morning. And in our local communities, we’re committed to leaving people better than we found them. We’re in the business of feeding people, and we’re out to change what that means.”
Says the restaurant: “Building on Off the Grid’s expertise in the mobile food services space, The Whole Cart is redefining corporate dining through the innovative use of mobile food infrastructure and technology, delivering premier employee dining solutions that are flavor-driven, endlessly scalable and geographically flexible.
Offering daily rotating fare from more than 25 unique mobile culinary concepts as well as custom interior services, stationary kiosks and carts, The Whole Cart provides an uncompromising standard of food quality and service and is proud to feature ethically-sourced ingredients from local farms, fisheries and ranches.”
Says the restaurant: “Convention can be boring. Actually, it's almost always boring...but that’s why the 60’s happened. It’s also why we happened. We believe you don’t need to have an opinion and a mustache to eat a croissant, and you sure as hell don’t need to have a gym membership just to enjoy some carbs.
We’re the new-comers to the pastry world, and, much like your younger sister, the parents are still pretending we’re going to turn out just fine. We probably will, but until then we’re hoping to rewrite the traditional rules of branding, overturn common practice in company culture, and rethink craft baking as a whole.”
9. Proper Food
Says the restaurant: “Friendly? Assertive? Passionate about food made from the highest quality, local ingredients? Join the Proper Food team! Proper Food is a new and exciting food concept that offers freshly handcrafted, wholesome, and convenient grab-and-go food.”

We are still united by the simple purpose of getting great coffee to everyone who asks for it. Improbably and delightfully, there are hundreds of us now.”
Says the restaurant: “A family owned business seeking qualified and dedicated individuals with a friendly disposition, love for food, and a desire to learn and grow with us. If you do well in a fast pace environment and can think outside the box when a situation arises, we would love to hear from you.”

Customers order at the counter and then sit down. Kitchen staff quickly prepares consistently delicious meals. Baristas prepare lates and other delicious drinks.
Food and drinks are brought to the table by a smiling and friendly Barista/Cashier. Our goal is to offer an outstanding experience to our guests, every time! We give preference to experienced applicants with open work availability, and preference to those who don't live too far from the restaurants.”
Says the coffeeshop: “Do you enjoy a perfectly pulled shot of espresso, appreciate the comfort of a warm drink on a chilly day, love the sound of Al Green on a Saturday morning? Have you always wanted to work in an environment that embraces diversity and values individuality? Are you enthusiastic about coffee, craft beer and simple yet delicious food? This might be the job for you!”
