We exist to be more than a coffee shop. Intentionally near several diverse neighborhoods in Syracuse, we strive to be the “neighborhood gathering space”.

Meet the Owners:

Aaron began roasting coffee as a hobby, and over the course of several years, evolved into a business. One day, Aaron, and his wife, Maria, were walking their neighborhood in Syracuse, they began dreaming of what it would look like to live and work in the city. A vision for a cafe was borne. Intentionally looking for a place in or near neighborhoods, they found the cafe’s home on W Onondaga St. Close to downtown, surrounded by 3 distinct and diverse neighborhoods, and on the cusp of a business district that is hoping for a comeback.

We took an old 1860’s mansion (read an article about our opening here), that was recently the McMahon/Ryan Child Advocacy building, and created an “extended living room” feel to it.

We feel that we roast the finest beans around, brew the finest coffee with those beans, enjoy conversations with our customers, and provide a space that creates meaningful connections with people from all walks of life.

What do we know, though. You be the judge 🙂


Aaron, Maria, and family
