Serving over 100,000 people a year, our dream of a cafe is now a full-blown artisan chip company with a unique process from start to finish that has given a level of surprise in everything we create.

We are what you would call chip people.

At our roots, we’re a homegrown business using homegrown ingredients to bring people together for a curiously good time. Offering the best sandwiches paired with our hand-crafted potato chips and a killer 80’s-90’s playlist - we won’t disappoint you.
