Trailhead Cafe

What do you get when you combine a love for bikes, the outdoors and good food? The Trailhead Cafe. The concept is a family run local business that was born out of these passions. Their other business, Grand Rapids Bicycle Company┬áresides right next door, with an opening to connect the two. The realtor of the space had directed the owner my way, as I had designed the original cafe that occupied this space, CG’s Prep Kitchen and Cafe. They liked my work and hoped to re-create the space by re-purposing as many of the materials as we could. The results…quite pleasing. The food…delicious! Stay tuned for a future news regarding an expansion to this business.
