Poa Cafe was established in 2014 as a wholesome foods cafe with emphasis on family.  Our goal is to teach children, from a young age, about accepting diversity and connecting to a broader community by sharing knowledge, compassion and creative ideas. And like many of you, we believe it's done best over a good meal.

The cafe serves a  wholesome breakfast, lunch and dinner menu (vegan, vegetarian and pale options) that includes smoothies, rice/quinoa/noodle bowls, paninis, salads, avocado, eggs, espresso, cocktails and a great option of nutritious kid's meals. We have a large play/creative area for children, free wifi, USB outlets, charming back patio (bbq, fire pit and sandbox coming this summer), and plenty of bright light for casual diners.

The cafe also plays host to a variety of events such as art shows, story-time, language classes, fundraisers and more, and our large open floor plan with community style dining tables converts to the perfect gathering space in the evenings. Poa will be hosting a new dinner series starting early next year called, 'eat, entertain, educate + inspire" where inspirational artisans, artists and rad folks will cover a variety of topics over a shared meal.  Come say hello!

Owner, Janice, (pictured with her son Rocket, husband Greg and daughter Nico not pictured) created the cafe after returning from a trip to Tanzania Africa with Rocket , who was at the time 5 years old. She was inspired to connect children in different communities locally and worldwide, and Poa cafe's family vibe with multicultural curated books and classes, seemed like the perfect start.

The open 1,900 sq ft room is bright and airy during the day, with a large back creative play space for children. The ambience quickly changes in the evenings with lots of warm, gold flickering lights. The room converts and the gorgeous wood community table becomes a gathering space for large dinner parties and events.

Poa Cafe has a bright, open floor plan with plenty of seating, a large play area/reading nook for kids, and a charming back patio with more seating (spring 2015 will introduce a BBQ, fire pit and sandbox)
