At l'estudio cafe food and drink are a holistic expression of the values that have culminated out of our six years at our sister location.

We offer wholesome eats inspired by a mixture of Latin and Mediterranean food traditions, an attention to what is seasonal, and the styles and ingredients that capture our imaginations. Thoughtful meals served in our handcrafted ceramics began on a smaller scale at our first location, but l'estudio cafe marks an expansion and refinement of that concept. We are a lifestyle eatery dedicated to a celebration and appreciation of everyday rituals.
