“Pencil is dedicated in the memory of my brother Nathan who passed away in 2005. He was a student artist attending Otis College of Art & Design and had also studied at Art Center. After his passing, my mom and I had a vision to open a café where we could hang his art-works and create a community space that was welcoming to all -especially to all students & artists. Our intention was always to serve healthy delicious home-made food with a commitment to love unto others.”

- Janice, co-founder

[September 2018] After 5 years of being at the Harkness location, we have closed due to the landlord unwilling to renew our lease.

In the meantime, we're renting a commercial kitchen & offering sandwich deliveries in the Pasadena area for catering orders.

Thank you for your continued support and loyalty. We miss seeing you!
