“Tiisch” is a German word for table and, just like its namesake, this cafe is designed to bring people together.
The interior's calm, fresh-faced aesthetic was the result of a number of collaborations between owners Sarah and Sven Sander and local creatives. State 28 Interiors was responsible for the interior design; Little Leaf Company supplied the indoor plants and vines, and not-for-profit urban farmers Green World Revolution created the window-sill garden.
The brunch menu was written by Sven and demonstrates a light touch. Vegetables from the garden and oyster mushrooms grown on-site feature throughout.
Notable dishes include matcha pancakes served with strawberry, roasted rhubarb, mascarpone, honey and chamomile syrup, and the Bang Bang chicken – soft, shredded breast meat given an Asian spin with cucumber, kohlrabi, bean sprouts, coriander and a black vinegar dressing. Most of the dishes come in at less than $20, making the Tiisch menu particularly wallet-friendly.
The coffee is by Dukes Coffee and High Mountain Tea and Whistleblower supply the tea. Kommunity Brew kombucha and cold-pressed juices are also offered.
