The husband-and-wife team that oversees this earthy coffee house is focused on sharing a taste of Africa with Lakeview. They bring a discerning eye for coffee, selecting beans directly from African farmers then roasting them on site before they make their way into coffee drinks such as chai lattes, iced coffees and straight-up Joe. African sandwiches and meat pies are made from scratch daily and served up alongside a wide selection of homemade muffins, croissants, cinnamon rolls and other pastries. Neighborhood lunchers come for sandwiches and panini. Combined with handmade reclaimed furniture from Zimbabwe and African artwork on the walls, we'd say this duo does their roots justice.
