"Happiness is homemade"

Cedar Bay Café came from a passion for food and a dream of one day being able to serve delicious food in a warm and inviting meeting place that I could call my own.


My passion for coffee and food started in middle then high school. When hanging out at the Mud House was the “cool thing to do” and then while working at a different bakeries and deli’s in Charlottesville, VA. From there I went on to attend culinary school and upon finishing began working at Starbucks Coffee Company, where my love for coffee continued to grow. After years of putting off my dream, convincing myself “now was not the right time”, I was pushed by my parents to see that it was now or never. We found a space for me to rent and I began catering. After 6 months, the kitchen that I was renting went up for sale and I began looking for new location. With the help of a customer, I lucked up on the perfect spot for my first café!


We offer everything from classic coffee to house made specialty drinks. You can complete your cup of coffee with one of our delicious baked goods. Cool down with one of our smoothies or enjoy one of signature sandwiches. Maybe you have a special event coming up and need a caterer. Whatever it is that you are looking for, you can be sure that everything is made fresh and in house!


Our vision is to not only be the place that you drop in and get your morning cup of coffee but to be a place where you can sit down and enjoy that hand-crafted drink. Pop in to pick up those morning refreshments for your office meeting. Meet up with a friend and enjoy that much needed conversation over lunch or simply just sit and relax!


So stop on by and experience all that Cedar Bay Café has to offer! We’d love to meet you!
