Juniper Cafe-16.jpg

Juniper Cafe is a colorful & modern Vietnamese cafe & bakery brought to life by the team behind Lazy Betty - Ron Hsu, Aaron Phillips & Carl Van Tyle Gilbert - conveniently perched in Westside Village. Chef Tim Rufino dishes out housemade and locally-sourced Vietnamese specialties including pho, noodle salads and banh mis. Plus made-from-scratch pastries and lots of fun shaved ice options topped with ice cream for the kids and a full beverage program with a focus on cocktails incorporating Vietnamese flavors and ingredients for the rest!

 

Named for Hsu’s niece, Juniper Cafe is a bright and fun family-oriented space, surrounded by modern takes on traditional Vietnames design, featuring a stepped ceiling, two patio spaces and takeout window for on-the-go coffee, tea and pastry lovers.
