A bit about smooch.. This neighborhood gem has served amazing coffee, yummy avocado on toast and free wifi for over ten years. It's owner Basquali aka Mister B. Aka, "That moody little Aussie who always wears hats!.." opened the cafe with his then partner KalaLea with a mission to "bring people together and connect them in a delightful way." Hence, the name smooch because "kissing is the most intimate and delightful expression of unity".
Last year, Basquali and his wife Michelle closed smooch for several months to give the space a massive injection of love, with extensive renovations and a re design, and a commitment to keeping smooch's spirit and vibe in tact. Basquali's READ IT AND WEEP sign was posted out front announcing the rebirth of the cafe and the launch of it's sister brand, Bisou Bisou for French kissing or unifying at night.
