Equator's refresh of the historic Round House Cafe offers a spectacular vantage point of the Golden Gate Bridge. As part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, often the most visited site in the National Park system, this Art Deco perch with a near-360 degree view, is a great place to take a break and enjoy a wonderful coffee drink.
"Making people's lives better through coffee informs every connection we make, from farmer to roaster to the barista preparing your cup, to you as a consumer and the communities that our cafes inhabit - we call it The Chain of Well-Being," says Helen Russell, Co-founder of Equator Coffees. "The Golden Gate Bridge represents who we are as a people and as a country - our community coming together to imagine and construct what was thought to be impossible. The Round House Cafe will be a new point of pride for our farmer partners. Locals from across the Bay Area to visitors from across the world will have a chance to savor delicious roasts and flavor profiles in ethically sourced and produced cups of coffee."
"The Golden Gate Bridge is the span that connects us, and the revitalized Round House is where we'll meet," notes Chris Lehnertz, President & CEO, of the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy. "We are delighted to work with Equator Coffees, an organization that reflects our values of putting people and communities first."
"Equator Coffees will be a beloved addition to the Golden Gate Bridge Visitor Plaza, which was transformed in 2012 for the Bridge's 75th anniversary," said Paolo Cosulich-Schwartz, spokesperson for the Golden Gate Bridge, Highway & Transportation District. "We hope visitors will use this space to meet, learn about the history of the Bay Area's most iconic landmark, and enjoy their visit to the Bridge with a warming beverage from Equator."
"We are pleased that Equator Coffees has joined the Parks Conservancy in serving visitors from all over the world during their visit to the Bridge and Golden Gate National Recreation Area," says Laura Joss, Superintendent of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, National Park Service.
