September Update

Hello everyone!

I know it’s been quiet around here but we have been doing all kinds of work on the cafe and we will soon be opening!

There is one big change that we have made this season. We will now be open Monday through Friday and closed on the weekend. Mark it on your calendars: Monday coffee dates!

Here are a few pictures of what we have been up to:

Pedal to Patagonia

A couple weeks ago some of you had the chance to meet four guys who were hanging around the cafe taking a break from their epic journey: bicycling from Joshua Tree, California to Patagonia, Argentina.

We found Alex, Brad, David, and Robert hanging around the Melaque square and invited them to stay with us. We have traveled a bit in our time and once you start that wandering bug never quite leaves your system; we might have been living vicariously through them…

They left us and continued on their way South but they have a blog for those of you interested in following their journey. We should also let you know that, in our humble opinion, these are four great guys. While they were with us they were helpful, polite, wonderful with our kids, and all in all, genuine in their positive and fun-filled attitude about life. It was refreshing and inspiring for us to see. We also discovered that they are broke. If you are interested in supporting their dream and their mission, you can contribute to their adventure via their webpage, www.pedaltopatagonia.com. Safe travels, guys, and godspeed!

Check out this storm!

Come by and enjoy a piping hot cup of coffee with us this morning! We are open in spite of the storm outside. We don’t have much seating but we do have fresh muffins and espresso! Open 8 to 1 pm.

Music and Coffee

Come enjoy your favorite drink along with some live music! We will have Nathan on guitar, Jacques’ awesome percussion, and swingin’ Harmonica George to brighten up your morning.
