About Us

Welcome to Palmetto Superfoods where you will experience authenticity, nutrition, extensive customization, and top-notch service from beginning to end! While we pride ourselves in serving the purest and most authentic Brazilian açaí, our menu extends beyond that. With a variety of bases and quality ingredients for you to personalize your bowl or smoothie from, the possibilities are endless. At Palmetto Superfoods, there's something for everyone, any time of day, ensuring a delightful and customizable experience every time!

In 2015, Charles Lee, a devoted açaí enthusiast and San Francisco native, discovered the gem called Cafe de Casa, quickly falling in love with its Brazilian delights, particularly the açaí. Building a genuine friendship with owners Thaís and Amanda, Charles, along with his longtime friend Hessam, envisioned a restaurant concept focused on highlighting the purest açaí and other superfoods, giving birth to Palmetto Superfoods. Established in the Inner Richmond of San Francisco in 2019, our journey has expanded with multiple locations across the entire Bay Area. As we continue to grow our offerings and menu items, we’re excited to bring our tasty and healthy treats to neighborhoods across the Bay Area, states, and world in the coming years! Stick with us on this flavorful adventure and be a part of our story.
