“A happy and healthy community is not a fairytale. All you need to make is one positive decision at a time. Let’s flourish together”
— CHAD GRUBBS, FOUNDER
Our journey really started after a 2011 visit to Joshua Tree and we just feel in love with the peace and complexity of the desert. Next thing we knew plants and vegetation became our passion. Jen started up the “Plant Shoppe,” and I started dabbling into fabrication. This led us into creating new workshops and events. Eventually, we opened a cafe within the Plant Shoppe, called OKAY YEAH. After a couple years, this led us to now our present embodiment, Stitch Cafe & Plant Shoppe with the West Village OKC location.
We aim to make deep meaningful connections with the community, agricultural products, the land, farmers, purveyors, the animals, and our craft.
Simply put we want to live an intentional life. We want to awaken more and more each and everyday to realize we are connected and a part of so much more. Stitch’s call is the realization that all our decisions bind us. So we take our time and develop relationships with local and ethical purveyors.
The intention of Stitch is to offer a simple, yet holistic approach to the cafe experience while creating an environment that allows individuals the opportunity to experience connection by encountering authenticity, honesty, creativity, intentionality, and passion through food and beverage service.
With its casual minimalistic style, Stitch Cafe will aim to become a gathering space for conversation and sharing through food, beverage and hospitality. Those that visit will be encouraged to slow down and understand that they are a part of the story. We believe that each person matters, no matter who they are, where they’ve come from and where they are in their own personal journey. All are welcome to come in, converse, and share in this common everyday experience we have around the table. In doing so, we hope that guests are left with the experience of feeling connected (or rather “stitched”); a part of something much larger than themselves.
