~HAYES VALLEY BAKEWORKS~, the café from Toolworks that offers job training and employment for the disabled and homeless, has secured a $100,000 Google Grant, and will be putting it to work opening a new cart at the SoMa STrEAT Food Park. The new cart, which will be opening in late June, will offer breakfast service to the neighborhood, with items like their monster cinnamon rolls, gluten-free granola bars, and a new baked egg sandwich on a jalapeño corn biscuit with ham and provolone. There will also be Four Barrel coffee. For hours and exact opening date, follow along on Twitter or Facebook. 428 11th St. at Bryant and Division.

Liquor license activity tipped us off to the new upcoming location of ~TENDER GREENS~ on King Street in SoMa. A call to the current downtown location confirmed that the new location is indeed a go, and will be opening in mid-September. The chain, which was founded in Southern California and has many locations there, offers fresh salads and larger plates in a fast casual environment; here’s the menu. They also offer staples of downtown lunch, like online ordering and office catering. 266 King St. at 4th St.
