Wow. After more than a year of searching and a few years of dreaming and planning we finally have a signed lease and can start the process of building our cafe and sharing Devout Coffee with the world. Words can't describe how stoked we are.
About the building...
We could not be happier with our location in the always charming Niles of Fremont,CA. If you aren't familiar with Niles, it has a rich cultural history including art, early movies, etc. We will be right on Niles Blvd. in a building that is around 100 years old and was originally an old gas station. For being a 100 year old building, the owner has taken the effort to make it meet all modern building specs, and even put in two ADA restrooms (a requirement for us anyways). We have a large patio area for outdoor seating and events and a fully finished basement. Be sure to take a stroll down Niles Blvd. with your cup of Devout Coffee and visit some of the local small businesses, antique shops, and galleries.
Ahead lies plans, permits, construction and lots of coffee!
For now our plan is to get the process of renovating the location into a cafe started as soon as possible. In the mean time, we will be getting our pop up espresso cart going in the front of the building and start serving coffee ASAP. We'll be posting a schedule as soon as we can.
Be looking for more updates as the process develops.
We love watching the development and building of cafes through social media and encourage you to follow our process on Instagram and Facebook. We will be hashtagging our build out process with #37323niles.
You can help us get our doors open... how?
- Kickstarter. We will be launching our Kickstarter campaign in the next week or so with some awesome incentives for you.
- Social. We are going to need your help to get the word out to all of your friends and family.
- Building. Are you a contractor, architect or builder by chance? We could use your help.
Thanks for all your support and enjoy your Thanksgiving!
