About our Restaurant
WIDE EYES OPEN PALMS | AKA WEOP
We are a Specialty Coffee and Seasonal Food Cafe located at 416 Cherry Ave in sunny Long Beach, CA. One barista and one chef, passionate about seasonality and sustainability, living the dream each and every day. We are feminists and food activists who believe in bringing quality food and beverages to our Long Beach community, which then supports local farmers and coffee producers around the world. Creating from the heart space, we love and appreciate the taste the earth provides us and the community it connects. Prioritizing local and sustainable sourcing means that our menus will be changing with the seasons and the farmers market availability. We intend to serve you and live each day with WIDE EYES & OPEN PALMS.
A MULTI-ROASTER COFFEE SHOP
Yup, we do not roast the coffee. We look towards award winning roasters in the industry to provide us with the fresh roasted materials. In the biz, this is called being a “multi-roaster shop”. We currently rotate between Heart, Ritual, Tectonic, Augie’s and a variety of local favorites. These are coffee roasters with sustainable practices and direct trade relationships. These are companies that believe in us and we in them. All of these relationships are important to us, the environment and the people who were a part of the process. With this care we look forward to serving you the best cup of coffee we can every time.
DEDICATION TO SUSTAINABILITY
We compost all of our coffee, tea and food waste at a local farm. We use all compostable eco-products, including cups, napkins, plates, to-go containers and utensils. We ride our bikes and strive to be conscious of water conservation. We use 100% eco cleaning products and dish soap. We love our earth and care about how we serve our food and beverage.
