description

At Looking Glass Imports & Cafe we are committed to the idea of community and the exploration of life.  To better promote our vision of the future, we have combined a healthy cafe with unique retail products and finished the experience with a dedicated event room, all in one 5,500 sf space.

Our cafe offers delicious sandwiches, salads, soups, smoothies, and many other treats.  Our retail consists of items from down the street and across the world.  Most are handmade and come from vendors that we have strong personal relationships with.

Looking Glass Imports & Cafe event space is designed to promote the sharing of ideas and the personal growth of all those who attend.

History

Looking Glass Imports & Café is the product of the founder’s passion and nearly five years of research.  Many business are created with one goal, make money.  This one is a bit different.  To us, money is nothing more than a natural byproduct of honest, customer focused, and authentic commitment to a bigger cause.  Our bigger cause and reason for being is to promote better lives.  We believe that humanity is capable of unmeasurable good (by today’s methods) and that the only thing standing in the way is a lack of experiences that challenge what is believed to be possible.  With this, the founders decided to combine a Café + Retail + Event space.  The theory is, with all of these combined components, people just like you will find frequent value and choose to make our shop your community home.  We may have started it but we need you to grow it and help turn the wheel of change in this wonderful world.

Specialties

At Looking Glass Imports & Cafe we focus on awesomeness and happiness packed into 5,500 square feet!  Our café offers healthy and quick sandwiches, salads, soups, smoothies and more, in a fun – see the freshness – way.  Oh yeah, we have drinks too!  Our retail offers unique items from down the street, across the country and around the world.  We are proud to say that we actually know our suppliers, even those in Nepal and India.  We also have large event and class space where we introduce new ideas and promote the exploration of life and all of its glory.  We even have private offices and intuitive counselors available daily.  If that is not enough, we also have an amazing secluded patio for events, live music or just enjoying the day.
