“Having a high quality coffee doesn't have to be like a pilgrimage,” says owner, Vincent Chen whose mission is to deliver high quality coffee in a very casual, relaxed environment. Ironically , “word of mouth” about this coffee mecca is bringing people from far and wide.
“Nothing philosophical, complicated or French. . . ” the name “Stone” was chosen to eliminate any preconceived notions about this comfortable neighborhood coffee shop. Run by Vincent and his girlfriend Natalia Lin (no other staff), customers are treated like friends in this warm and inviting java joint. Sporting a raw, loft-like aesthetic, every table offers a different character and vibe.
Obsessed with coffee perfection, Vincent took a year to pick the single origin beans of his liking and to finalize the brewing method that matched the flavor profile he envisioned. So, in short, you should probably try the coffee: a lot of research went into it! And of course, Stone continues to innovate process, ingredients. . . so there's always something new. Desserts are made in-house and feature “rich but clean” flavors like the TIEGUANYIN (CHINESE TEA) CHEESE CAKE. If you've got a hankering for something savory the MONSIEUR CIABATTA will float your boat.
If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle, if you are looking for a quiet spot for a private conversation or to get some work done, Stone is for you. So slow down, choose your spot and take a load off - time to recharge with some outstanding coffee.
