We all trust our mother’s cooking because we all know that it’s made of the best ingredient of all time – pure, unconditional love. In the same way, our products are ones you can count on. It may not be much, but that’s what we have to offer.
We bring you authenticity you can count on
tradition is an obligation.
Yeon Lee, founder of Ampersand, opened Café La Lee in 1990 out of pure passion for the European-style café, to which she was naturally attracted during her travels. She saw that the time people spent at the neighborhood café was more than satisfying thirst or hunger. She was inspired by the idea of enjoying not only what’s on the menu, but enjoying the store’s ambiance, authentic Italian tableware, premium specialty coffee, and most importantly – quality time shared with loved ones.
We have a steadfast commitment to authenticity. To us, there’s no room for compromise. This will never change – it’s our guiding star. It’s what drives us and inspires us every day.
