This venue was really unique, intimate and and lovely. I held a memorial, and it felt like we were in our living room, with our own little cafe attached. The hosts were extremely accommodating and flexible when I needed to add an extra hour at the last minute. They provided many nice little touches, votive candles, table coverings, a projector. My guests were very impressed and complimentary! Thanks to Olga and to James, and Peerspace for listing them.
I loved my experience at this location! I used it for a maternity photo session. It wa me Beautiful, clean and professional. I would recommend this location! Thank you!
Great experience! The place is adorable and cozy. We had a wonderful evening with family and friends. James and Olga were great to work with. I look forward to booking this space again.
I produced a shoot here at the Rustic Cafe, and everything was perfect! Olga was extremely responsive to all my questions, and James, our contact person in the space, was very helpful throughout the day and just overall a very sweet man. On top of that, the space looked great on camera. Would totally book here again, and I highly recommend. Thanks again!
Nice place, Olga was great to work with. Was thrown for a second when I saw "Church" signage outside and church space in the rear but the space worked great for a documentary film interview.
