We Are Different ~ Just Like You
Uninhibited, chilled out alternative to uptight chains that feels more like an extension of our own family room. Our place is full of individual character, at times a bit quirky and even loud, but always buzzing with real life... and we like it that way.
During the day, a quiet subdued feeling makes it an easy place to work, study, read, tinker at the piano, meet with clients or just while away your time. The place gradually morphs into a social night spot full of playful spontaneity that include concerts, dancing, video gaming and movie showings... planned or not.
There are but two small caveats:
1. We adore people... from all walks of life and whatever their age (outside, or on the inside)... we want to know them and encourage you to as well.. Nothing thrills us more than to bear witness to bridges being built over generational, intellectual, economic or continental gaps through a friendly exchange. We find thereís simply no better way to expand the view of our world than to experience it through anotherís eyes.
2. We really LOVE music... especially live music... we are hopelessly addicted to it. In fact, we love it so much that nearly all of our baristas and many of our regulars are, or have been, in our High School music program, or are otherwise skilled vocally or with an instrument or two. As such, it is not entirely unusual to find your barista at the piano or for some other spontaneous eruption of music to occur. Please consider it as one of our quirks.
We welcome you as you are... and it's perfectly fine to just be you... quirks and all.
