Taking cue from Victorian-age flourishes seen in architecture and interior design, Open House Café is an independently owned café with nostalgic, but contemporary sophistication. Open House Café landed itself in a lovingly-restored Victorian home located in the Golden Hill neighborhood of San Diego. It targets young adult, working-class urbanites and reminds them of the “proper” times of Victorian modesty, hospitality, and generosity. The aesthetic is inspired by all that was clean and elaborate in a simple lifetime of domestication and regimen. Open House Café takes pride in its cultured and welcoming barista staff and are famous for their mint products. They produce perennial mint, which they nurture on sight, process, and package into personable gifts.
