ABOUT US

 

we take pride in crafting comfort food and creating curated experiences for our beloved community.

What began as a coffee counter seven years ago, has become today a place where locals gather at all hours of the day for comfort food and drink. Whether its for lunch or dinner on the café side or to belly up to the bar in the lounge, at the Trail’s End Café we go above and beyond whatever you thought you were in for.

More than just a café, our unique space offers several options to suit the ambience and meal of your choosing: from our select coffee brews and fresh baked goods on the café-side to a fine dining experience with crafted cocktails on the lounge side.
