With the cafe’s central location, we have been able to become a community hub where people can meet up with friends or business partners, get some work done, or spend quality time with loved ones. Parents can enjoy a latte and a little down time while their children play on the back patio in the playhouse. Kids can come hang out and wait for their rides after school. Young people can come find a quiet corner to read or study for a while. Couples can enjoy a coffee retreat.
In the spring of 2008, after considering a career change, owner,
Kathleen, came upon a random shop for sale in a neighborhood location that
resonated to her the idea of “community.”
After spending time with the previous owner and his staff, she purchased
the cafe and renamed it, Cafe Zoë, after her daughter. The tag line for the
shop became “a place for peace, hope and community.”
