Sparrow Cafe: A first look
A colorful cup of pick me up
This corner has been a challenge for coffee shops. The former Adagio (and before that Dragonfly) space has been spruced up and is ever hopeful that this will become the spot for neighborhood coffee lovers to land. Sparrow Cafe opened on New Year's Day, filled with stunning sparrow-laden murals by local artists Broken Crow . The cozy interior has a modest amount of comfortable chairs and tables as well as a couch and coffee table stocked with board games.
Sparrow Cafe is owned and operated by Sheila and Jasper Rajendren. Jasper has a history in the hospitality industry, working in coffee shops as well as restaurants. His counter service is bright, friendly, and welcoming. They are also quick with a coffee pour, so important in the early morning. Cappuccinos and lattes are adorned with floral foam artistry that also add a little smile to your morning.
