Peace, love & coffee

After a career as a commodities analyst and music-vid producer for acts like Wu Tang and Marilyn Manson, GPF's Switzerland-raised founder went to barista school in Oregon before opening this loft-equipped coffee shop dominated by a massive machine gear/peace symbol mash-up logo -- branding backed by sending 2% of sales to charity. The expertly brewed bean (plus hot chocolate, chai, Italian soda, etc) is augmented by paninis (from a roast beef cheddar melt to bacon/ham/turkey/cheddar b-fast options) and pastries including almond croissants and eclairs -- a steady diet of which will ensure you're never one of the beautiful people, the beautiful people.
