Come in every morning for a self-serve cup of your traditional, greasy spoon diner coffee. It’s self-serve, so our salty wait staff has nothing better to do than check your vaccine cards and make sure you wear a mask when not seated. We care about your caffeination and your safety, too!

Photography allowed? Yes, with permission of any participants who will be in the photos.

COVID-19 Precautions: Vaccines are required to enter the café space. Social distancing has been accounted for in table placement. Masks are required whenever patrons are not seated at their own table, and staff will have a mask full time plus spares on hand.
