This place is the heart of the Japantown community. The owners support local art, culture, positivity and growth. Stop by for a great croissant and coffee and chat with the Rast family. We love visiting every Sunday. Kids, dogs, and students welcome.

On the wall of the coffee shop there is an explanation of the history of the location and its reincarnation into a coffee shop from a gas station. Lots of locals here. Very casual, but crowded this weekend.
