What’s the what up? Balloons, always balloons with Javista:
The state of the café in 2014
We’ve been open for over a year, and we can’t believe it - also, it’s been so frikkety long since we last blogged (although we have been talking on our twitter, Facebook and Instagram accounts), and we can’t believe that, either. Happy New Year (already over halfway into the first month…)
So, we had our first year birthday (in early December) since we last talked, and that’s about the age we act. ; ]
In honor of our birthday, we added some things, and expanded some others. Our closing hour is now 8:00p (except Sundays, which remains 7:00p) and we’ve expanded our lunchtime hours for sandwich-making to 11:00a - 6:00p.
We added a fresh Vegan Delight Sandwich, filled to bursting with avocado, heirloom tomatoes, baby greens and bruschetta. We’ve also added herbalicious matcha (a powdered green tea), which you can order in three versions: ceremonial, latté, or Gibraltar. (Try it on ice, too - uplifting.)
Some fun stuff happened during our birthday celebrations: we started out by offering free coffee drinks for $1 all day, and we saw our lines going out the door and down the block.
Then we received this very shiny certificate from the City of L.A., thanking us for our contributions to the neighborhood, and for operating with “fair-trade and sustainable business practices”. (We love its Battlestar Galactican corners…) This really *made* our day.
Towards the end of the day, Javista owners and workers (minus one):
… released our balloons into the air, with a certificate promising free Javista treats to anyone who found them and brought them to us. (No takers so far…)
And then we captured a bright shot of the reason that Sunset Blvd. is called Sunset.
We hope this year will be as coffee-filled and delicious as 2013 was.
(News coming soon about our next gallery opening in February… stay tuned.)
