We are a cheeky Californian cafe and coffee micro-roasting company. We are passionate foodies, which specializes in artisan, fresh, healthy, fusion 'fast food' and coffee. We go to great lengths to ensure that our food and coffee excite the palate, which includes grinding our own meat, roasting our own speciality coffees and crafting our ice cream. Our wine bar specializes in mid to high range wines from the Americas. The wine menu was crafted to ensure that price matches the complexity and intensity of the wine. The wine bar starts after 5pm.
