We place the health and safety of our staff and customers first during this rapidly changing COVID-19 pandemic. Based on the guidelines designed to keep our community healthy we are canceling all live events starting March 14th without exception.
We have reviewed our operating practices and have:
For now, we are open for business, and ask that you stay home if you are unwell, so our staff and customers are not exposed. We will be available to serve you the best cup of coffee on the island when you are well.
If you choose to practice social distancing, we are ready to prepare your orders to go to keep that careful balance of caffeine and pastry levels in check.
We will follow any new guidelines as shared by local, state and federal organizations, including the CDC, and the WHO to help keep Alameda healthy.
As you can imagine, this is a very tricky situation to balance for a small, family owned and operated business. Please be gentle with yourself, the community and local businesses as we learn how best to keep everyone safe.
Thank you for your support now and in the future.
