We've been at the corner of Monroe and 26th St. for over 20 years, just across the street from the Oregon State University. We decided that our cafe needed a new and refreshed look right before the High School class of 2018 starts filling the dorms this year. Let's take a look at the before pictures first!
We started our remodel on August 31st, by spray painting the ceiling black.
We then cleared out the cafe furniture and started painting the walls.
Meanwhile we had an expert come install a new floor!
Once we got the floor it was time to bring the new counters in! These were made custom for us with a sealed top to bring out the beautiful natural colors of the recycled pallet wood!
Our guys had to do some modifications to the metal framework, and slapped on the plywood after making some precision cuts!
Meanwhile, back at our main office in Albany - We took the old condiment bar and gave it a huge makeover!
While that was happening, our team was hanging the recycled pallet wood. It took 102 recycled pallets to finish this location. Wood on the walls, top/sides of the new counter, on our retail shelving displays, and on our condiment bar.
We moved our beautiful Victoria Arduino, VA358 White Eagle espresso machine to the counter where she can be seen in all her glory. Look at that crystal clear reflection!
As the remodel was getting close to finish we started our canvas hanging and furniture/retail placements.
We're also excited to open with 2 new products! Tsunami Energy Drinks
Tsunami took the 2018 People's Choice Best New Product award at Coffee Fest Los Angeles - we loved it too and quickly brought it to our Campus location before the university term starts.
Try one of the many offerings!
And the other new product is our Empanadas! Perfect for the Grab-n-Go student looking for a hot meal between classes. We have several kinds to choose from including Spicy Chicken, Ground Beef, Green Chili, just to name a few.
We reopened on Sept. 17, 2018 - and we're super excited about our new look at the Campus location. If you're ever in the area, swing on in. We're at 2541 NW Monroe St, Corvallis, Oregon. We hope to see you soon!
