Owners of Tomales Farmstead Creamery Launch Foodie Venture in San Francisco


SAN FRANCISCO, CA
Friday, January 18th, 2019

A first-of-its-kind foodie paradise of cheese and bagels is jumping out of my wildest dreams and into reality. Scheduled to open in March 2019, Daily Driver is set to be the first-ever cheese-making creamery and bagel shop in San Francisco. The shop is a collaboration between two duos: Tamara Hicks and David Jablons of Tomales Farmstead Creamery fame and Hadley and David Kreitz—a couple with expertise in cheesemaking and wood-fired bagel making.

The name Daily Driver is a colloquialism for an object that is used reliably on a daily basis. A daily driver is a go-to, everyday comfort, like an old car with a special owner relationship, and it’s what this restaurant hopes to be for the neighborhood: the local, everyday bagel, creamery and coffee spot that is welcoming, warm and convivial,” the company wrote in a press release.

Daily Driver’s over 5,000-square-foot space will showcase bagels being baked, cheese being made, butter being hand-paddled, and Red Bay Coffee being roasted and brewed in full view of its 130 seats. There will also be a retail space to sell Tomales Farmstead Creamery cheeses and other local and handmade West Marin and California goods.

Here are just a few more of the features Daily Driver is touting for its soon-to-be-open shop:

  • Hand-rolled, boiled, and wood-fired bagels made each morning
  • Bagels flavors including poppy, sesame, everything, salt, garlic, onion, and plain
  • Cream cheese, butter, ghee, buttermilk, skim milk, and fresh cheeses all made fresh in-house
  • Seasonal veggies, fish, and herbs that can be added to their cream cheese
  • Seasonal compound butters including a butter dusted with local seaweed
  • A menu offering bagel sandwiches, salads, soups, pretzels, bagel dogs, and Maine Lobster Bagel Rolls
  • Beer and wine, including neighboring breweries and wineries like Triple Voodoo, Harmonic, McEvoy, and Oakville Ranch Wines
