The purpose of our cafe (other than selling amazing coffee and food) is it's about community. We want it to be a community gathering space for anyone that is local or visiting. We have bikers, runners, tons of beach goers, older affluent townies, families, business travelers, contractors that come to our space. The name NATIVE is a combination of our two kids (Natalie and Clive). There are ZERO Native American tie-ins. It will be a place our kids will be a part of and we do this for them! We also want to speak to the fact our food will be locally sourced and we will work with local partners to help our business. We want this to truly be a local community cafe that is warm, friendly and we sure know a heck of a lot about good coffee and food. Our space will have more of a California modern feel. We will have a lot of black and white (maybe with a pop of green) along with warm wood tones. We want the space to feel modern and upscale, but warm and inviting as well.
We also see "Native" being more prominent and Coffee and Kitchen, Coffee & Kitchen, Coffee + Kitchen with less prominence, but we are open to ideas. We know that because we are in a traffic circle, having the "Coffee + Kitchen" will be important for people to quickly see and recognize it's a cafe.
Image below is not essential for inclusion, but we will feature amazing local surf/beach images in our cafe, and of course one with our two kiddos.
