Last Friday, veteran SF street vendor The Creme Brulee Cart opened its first brick and mortar shop at 1246 Folsom Street, in SoMa. The Brulee Cart’s empire has evolved from a one person operation in 2009, to a crew that operates in downtown & many OTG events, and a cute white food truck parked at Market and Castro, from 5 pm until late night (Tuesdays to Sundays).
The new place is only open 4 days per week, right next to Blue Bottle Coffee purveyor, Vega at Langton. The shop’s schedule is as follows: Thursdays and Sundays from noon to 8 pm, Fridays and Saturdays from 2 to 10 pm. Except for tomorrow, Saturday, August 18, because the crew will be busy at the SF Street Food Festival.
Today, the menu listed 3 regular flavors for $4 each: classic Vanilla Bean, “Cafe Mocha” made with Ritual coffee and Guittard chocolate, and “Dulce de Loco” made with goat’s milk caramel; plus a pair of specials at $5 each: “The Yes, Please” with nutella and strawberries, and “S’mores” topped with mini marshmallows and Golden Grahams cereal. Owner Curtis Kimball, will feature his most elaborate recipe confections at this shop, like “The Tupac” topped with Champagne cranberry sauce and candied pecans.
And don’t forget to pickup a customer loyalty card, to get one free creme brulee after 10 purchases. Check Twitter for schedule updates.
