Enveloping a serene and distinct environment that drives a vast history paired with an organic naturalness, The Cafe at Wave Street Studios is simply one of a kind. Owner Rhatt Smith acquired the property in 2003 and sought to preserve the historic house that has been on the property since 1919. The first endeavor the property took on was a successful tea house that really set the standard for the current popularity the cafe holds. Having opened in January 2015, Rhatt and his team quickly took widespread popularity not just for their products, but the sheer will to encompass a culture that brings a community together. The arts provided paired with the genuine quality and care raise the cafe to the next level making it a significant choice for a unique experience while in the area. The tea and coffee choices are all top shelf and organic, outshining similar locations, if any. The options ensure something for everyone and the expertise that goes into the brewing process is prevalent from top to bottom. Rhatt sets a standard in having the best of the best and he keeps his roasts fresh, never exceeding a week old and rotating five at a time. The tea is where the cafe really shines, offering fifty different types including Oolong, Green, Herbal, among many other exotic options. Pair that with the beautifully set one thousand square foot patio with a waterfall and a calming experience is encompassed. Widely renowned for not just the cafe but also the studio, the creative vision brings the entire property to life. The location has received recognition for recording Gran Torino with Clint Eastwood as well as companies like the NFL, BBC, PBS, and ABC. Everything the Cafe has to offer is organic and locally sourced, the green business is always striving to deliver what the body needs in a heightened fashion. Located just steps away from the Monterey Bay Aquarium, the opportunity to experience a historical environment paired with fantastic drinks makes it a must while in the area.
