A quick scroll through Café Réveille’s Instagram page tells you everything you need to know about this coffee shop and the lifestyle they are selling. A tightly curated brand aesthetic masquerading as a breezy street cool coffee shop. A step into one of the cafés tells you that this is a cooler café in a city full of caffeine-driven establishments. It’s more of a food-forward all day place. They serve everything you’d expect, everything you’d want. A mean breakfast sandwich, a decent breakfast burrito, smoothie bowls, grain bowls, salads and sandwiches, a bountiful menu of what can only be described as Californian fare to power any time of the day. Plus an extensive menu of coffees and juices to round out a “working” lunch.
Whether you’re looking for a quick pick me up or a casual sit down meal, Café Réveille is a solid choice any time of day. And a great place to people watch.
