Owners Seleste Diaz and Joana Rubio used to work together at Chango Coffee. Since its closure in 2018, the duo dreamed of opening up a caffeine cafe of their own. That dream has turned into a reality with the opening of Little Barn Coffee House this past Saturday.
As women of color and members of the LGBTQ+ community, Diaz and Rubio shared, “Our mission is to provide to all communities in which no one will be discriminated against.” They gathered up a team of independent women passionate about their mission and got to serving the most mouth-watering dishes. Little Barn’s menu offers a wide range of vegan sips and eats including an Oat Horchata Cold Brew, Build Your Own Vegan Omelette, Reuben Sandwich, Vegan Queso con Rajas Tamales, and more. They also stock vegan pastries from Ridiculous Baking Co.!
This plant-forward cafe took over the space where Division 3 used to reside in Glassell Park (3329 Division Street). Stop by from 7am to 3pm daily or place an order for delivery on Postmates!
“Let’s not forget the fear during these struggling times, it seems like a risk to start a new business but how do you get ahead without taking the risk? We are working very hard in taking the right precautions to keep our family and friends safe, caffeinated, nourished. We invite you all to be a part of our new chapter in life and let us feed you and spread a message of love,” stated Diaz and Rubio.
