Get gorgeous (and stuffed) at Glossier's month-long pop-up at Rhea's Cafe

Because nothing goes better with fried-chicken sandos than dewy highlighter and the buzziest brow groomer on the planet.

You may have seen the billboards prepping our eyes for what's to come: NYC-based beauty brand Glossier is about to land in San Francisco, and this first visit promises to be special. After a couple of G-team members came to town on a scouting mish and grabbed lunch at the beloved Rhea's Cafe (one of everything, please), the deal was sealed—welcome to Glossier at Rhea's.


Starting Wednesday, March 14, the Mission cafe—and top destination for a Korean steak sandwich fix—becomes the go-to for Glossier goodies. Find everything from the brand-new Lidstar, glistening shadows in six pastel shades, to our personal addictions (Cloud Paint and Milky Jelly Cleanser). Testing products is welcome; buying is inevitable.

To celebrate the month-long collab, the cafe gets its own makeover. While the signature counter and barstools remain, they're dressed in a new color palette and joined by cool new furniture. (Breaking news: We just spied painters outside Rhea's applying a lovely shade of #glossierpink to the facade.) Plus, there's custom-branded to-go packaging, destined to become collector's items for design geeks.

Those seeking sustenance can still chow down, although the menu is limited (yes, it includes the buttermilk fried chicken sandwich). Food service hours are also shorter (11am to 3pm Monday through Friday; 11am to 2pm Saturday and Sunday, with drinks available 5pm to 8pm daily).

Balm Dotcom, here we come.
