Long-time residents Brooke Roseberry and Tony Lagouranis saw the need for a neighborhood gathering place and seized on the opportunity to buy the charming storefront on the corner of California and Shenandoah avenues.

Colorful pillows line the rustic wooden booths, and pendant lights made from Mason jars cast a warm glow.
