The client came to us with a bag of roasted beans, a Mexican light fixture, an oak pallet, several works of art, a pour-over frame, and a bright yellow skull. We went from there. We included hand crafted wood work by Arrowhead, and by the Owner. The exterior storefront opens to the street and the southern sun. Bar seating at the counter creates a full service experience. Careful location of the stairs created open movement and distinct seating areas, each with character and purpose. Upstairs provides group worktops and views of the events below.
