This family-owned cafe brings performance art and culture to their all-day neighborhood cafe, specializing in third-wave coffee, local craft beer, and a seasonally-focused menu with high-quality healthy eats…at reasonable price points.
Come for the coffee, stay for the food!
Paper or Plastik Cafe is truly a family affair, started by a husband-and-wife team alongside their daughter. Their mission is to provide a thriving meeting place for creatives – and home away from home for the community.
The cafe’s housed in a mid-century building with exposed high-beam wood ceilings, detailed woodwork and dramatic floor-to-ceiling windows.
Cafe mezzanine level seating allows viewing of the adjacent dance and performing arts studio with ongoing rehearsals and performances many nights starting 8pm.
The menu offers an extensive breakfast selection, with plenty of greens and side salad option. 🙂 Lunch brings seasonal salads, bowls, sandwiches, and plates. Do check the daily specials. The artisan coffee and espresso are curated and prepared with care.
Local sourcing is emphasized from the produce to the stone-milled flours used for handmade pastas, to the local bakeries that round out the baked good offerings. Paper or Plastik also features a rotation of nearly two-dozen California craft beers.
Outdoor patio dining and space to linger. Vegetarian, Vegan, Gluten-free options.
