Just a quick note – Awaken Cafe has finally opened! I feel pretty lame because I didn’t actually get a chance to go in and get some coffee (meetings all day), but I did get to walk by and look inside at the tiled wall and paintings hanging everywhere. Though the cafe’s still in it’s first mini-phase, it was still inviting and somehow spacious.
Here’s an image from the email they sent out announcing the opening:
Here’s where and when to find Awaken:
