In the late 80's, my father owned and operated a cafe to finance his graduate studies. He applied a unique concept in the coffee shop industry: An Eclectic and Minimalist approach. After graduation, he started a career at Seattle Central College as a professor of Anthropology. He is still there.
My first job was a Barista. I fell in love with coffee, latte art, and the community. After working for five years, I approached my father for assistance in establishing a cafe based on his past experiences. We, my father and I, pooled all, yes all, of our assets and opened Urban Luxe Cafe on March 3, 2018.
Our minimalist/eclectic approach coupled with Mediterranean offerings and quality customer service earned us 5-star reviews two years in a row.
As a community based cafe, we have been offering local community organizations and artists our space to hold events free of charge as well as donating to local charity organizations and schools.
We just celebrated our 2nd anniversary on March 3, 2020. Similar to numerous family owned businesses, now we are facing a COVID-19 caused financial meltdown.
We are asking for your assistance to help us survive the COVID-19 crisis. Donate. Purchase gift cards (urbanluxecafe.com ). Order take-out/delivery (Joe Coffee, Uber Eats or by phone 206 900 10056)). Pass the word to family and friends.
Your contribution will go to fulfill our financial obligations: Rent, utilities, insurance and other operating expenses. Excess funds will be used to assist our employees in this time of duress
We need your assistance now, and we are forever grateful for the wonderful community we serve. To me, your support will keep the dream alive.
