Coffee Shop: Vif Café and Wine Bar

Fremont Coffee and Wine

Fremont Coffee and Wine

This month’s coffee shop is Vif Café and Wine Bar, located in the Fremont neighborhood.  Embracing the trend of whole ingredients, they offer house made both almond and coconut milk which is seasoned with dates instead of a traditional refined sugar (although, should you choose to indulge in a sweeter treat, they also provide local honey or Theo chocolate as options as well).  They offer a traditional espresso bar for any frothy creations you could imagine, and serve hand pour drip coffee with a carefully curated option of beans from around the world for a wide range of flavor in every cup o’ joe.

As the name of the café indicates, they also offer wine by the glass or bottle, and for the connoisseurs out there- you can join their wine club and enjoy their monthly selections. In an airy and light filled building, the café offers pastries and daily soup and sandwich selections to be enjoyed indoors or on their patio seating area. Parking is easy as they have a full lot to the north of them, and a local CSA has a pick-up spot on the premise. Overall, you could swing through for a quick to-go cup of excellent coffee, or stop by for lunch with friends (with a glass of wine, of course). A pretty versatile spot with a distinctly local flavor.
