Kava Cafe, New York NY | Merchant Profile

Kava Cafe was established in 2011 by Lara Brumgnach and her partner. Lara has been in the restaurant business in New York for sixteen years gaining experience in different aspects of the business; everything from working as a pastry chef to managing. Kava Cafe opened their second location on West 44nd Street in August of 2014. Lara wanted to bring a European bar and coffee experience to New York – where people come in the morning to have their coffee and breakfast and return in the afternoon for a drink and something to eat. Kava Cafe strives to be a social gathering place in the neighborhood; a comfortable place where it is easy to engage with others. Their West Village location still does not have wifi, they want to increase interaction among their customers. Kava Cafe is open seven days a week for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and will be expanding their diner menu in early spring 2016. They offer everything from great coffee and fresh juices to a full bar with a nice wine and beer list. The ëChorizo Egg Scrambleí and the ëBaked Avocadoí are highly popular among customers, as well as their signature seasonal cocktails. Happy Hour specials start every day at 3:00 pm! Kava Cafeís popular gluten-free and dairy-free brownies are homemade daily in small batches.
