We Love the mountains and …
have dreamed of owning a small comfortable café to relax with friends, family, co-workers, and guests to enjoy a great cup of coffee and share our stories together.
Both my parents are from Madeira Island (Portugal). I was fortunate enough to be born in Funchal, Madeira and came to America when I was about 5 years old. My mother was a wonderful example and mentor as she worked her way from seamstress to owning and operating her own small business in creating women’s sportswear.
My wife Nancy and I have two children, Erik and Karen. We moved to Asheville in November of 1994 and just love it here!
We hope to introduce our guests and Asheville to a “New Taste” with some of our Portuguese family-inspired menu and trust they will enjoy. Our goal is to create an environment “Place of Destination” that feels like coming home where our guests can meet with family, friends, and co-workers to enjoy their company.
