All of our products contain only the highest quality certified organic ingredients that meet or exceed the National Organic Program regulations set forth by the USDA.

It is also a place for discussion where a Community members get together to discuss neighborhood challenges and opportunities around local coffee, beer, wine and foods. These smaller discussions are focused around one topic or question with which a community is currently engaged. The whole process is carefully designed to be welcoming and comfortable for participants from all segments of the population. In addition, designers also deliberately plan the questions and process to encourage meaningful dialogue leading to productive learning and insight.
Our coffee comes from Woman-owned Small Business. All of our Po-Boy sandwiches and salads are made from scratch. Our bakery offerings are quite extraordinary. We also offer a wide variety of local wines and beers.
The environment of our café is relaxed and comfortable. We invite you to come in and stay for a bit. Have a cup of coffee, a little homemade Ginger juice, our sweet Love Potion and take a respite from the daily grind. We also provide free Wi-Fi for those who need to stay connected to their outside world.
