Sadly, in October 2017, Our beloved 1959 vespa ape fell victim to the Sonoma county wildfires which brought devastation to this beautiful area we call home.
however, We were fortunate enough to pull her from the wreckage and have the highest hopes of bringing her back to life. We look forward to keeping you abreast of our progress and adding a new service to our fleet in the future.
serendipitously, we were lucky enough to find a 1957 lambretta lambro which we have restored and converted into our new espresso bar.
Fun fact: the name Cafe apae service co. was inspired by our 1959 vespa ape espresso cart. In italian, "ape" means bee, and bees are one of the only other creatures on this planet who have the same reaction to coffee as humans do. bees collect the nectar from the coffee flowers which contain low doeses of caffeine. they experience the same "buzz" including addiction and productivity.
