BIG THINGS HAPPEN IN COFFEE SHOPS
Ideas percolate, connections brew, projects filter out. A good space is the vehicle, and good coffee is the fuel. We’re here whether you need a dose of inspiration or just a sorry excuse to get away from it all.
Sincerely, Kit and Ace
Our cups are a blank canvas for emerging artists to showcase original work in a fresh format. Every few months we partner with a different typographer or designer to create artwork for our cups and expose these artists to a new audience.

Kidder was heavily influenced by the art showcased at Honest Ed’s while he was enrolled in the art program at nearby central technical school. You can find kidder’s work throughout the city, with his work displayed at local businesses indefinitely.
