We're bringing weekly music series, cooking classes and private dinner pop-ups to Mottley Kitchen.

Other than serving great food and coffee, our vision for Mottley Kitchen is to provide a community space that our neighbors can come to relax, connect, learn and celebrate together. Through our event series, we hope to do just that. Check back often as we update our event offerings throughout the year. Contact us if you'd like to host an event or want to rent the cafe for an event of your own.
