keeping it local
Our menu is very seasonal as it changes according to what is being harvested in the local farms we have chosen to partner with who all follow organic farming practices. While not all of the produce we use bears a USDA organic label, we make a point to find out how the veggies, fruits, eggs and cheese we use have been grown and made!
We want to give you the best coffee out there, and we mean it! We are constantly travelling around town to visit some of the best local roasters to find the best seasonal selections. The beans are always fair-trade and organic whenever possible – in fact, many of the beans that our roasters use are well beyond the fair-trade minimum.
We are currently featuring beans from Handsome Coffee in Los Angeles, Verve Coffee Roasters in Santa Cruz, Rose Park Roasters in Long Beach, and Augie’s Coffee House’s in Redlands. The selection will change periodically – so check back often!
