“If you wanna be somebody, you gotta rock a bow tie.”
Bow Tie Cafe is a coffee shop & casual eatery located in the middle of Mt. Adams. It serves a variety of hand-crafted espresso beverages, casual bistro fare (which includes a delicious weekend brunch menu), and even coffee-inspired craft cocktails. But the reason this cafe gets a spotlight is due to its unique business purpose.
Kunta, and his appreciation for a good ol’ bow tie, inspired Dhani Jones to open the Bow Tie Cafe in 2010 when his friend Kunta was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. Dhani also founded the Bow Tie Cause, which raises money for charities such as the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
This isn’t just a place where you can get a good cup of coffee. You’re being charitable with your caffeine addiction. And if raising money for great causes isn’t reason enough to head over to the Bow Tie Cafe, they make a great cup o’ joe.
Can you think of a better way to spend a cold, wintery day? I think not.
The Bow Tie Cafe believes that if you rock the bow tie, then you are choosing to support something that is greater than you. I don’t know about you, but that’s a message I can get behind.
