Manager Adam Perez was behind the counter, along with Cindy Vasquez. The cafe, which will serve as a youth training center, is part of the new Essex Crossing project. Opening week hours are 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. (take advantage of a $3 coffee & pastry special this week). The business will be open starting next week 7 a.m.-3 p.m.
We can already tell the GrandLo Cafe will be a good community gathering spot. If you’re looking for a casual meeting destination in the neighborhood, check it out.
