Our Story

Poa means Everything is Cool in Swahili and is used as a casual greeting amongst friends. The cafe name was inspired by a 2013 volunteer trip to Tanzania Africa. It was there, owner Janice Grube decided that when she’d returned, she’d leave her job as a Producer at Wieden + Kennedy, and open a cafe in her own community. A place for appreciation and a platform for friends and family to gather and share good, clean, healthy foods. The joy of sharing a meal is remarkable, it’s a moment where we can all truly begin to understand each other.
