We almost missed this chill coffee jewel, hidden in a busy strip mall that is also home to a cremation center and a women's health store, but this is one spot you want to seek out.

It started with an obsession with coffee...and a name -- Coffee, NYC and Ayrton Senna. 


Grab the largest coffee mug you have, throw in equal parts coffee beans, bossa nova, NYC, a love of travel, scones the size of your head, nature, fair trade, memories of the beach and a bit more coffee beans....and somehow you end up with Cafe Silva.

At Cafe Silva, Suraiya and I have designed a coffeehouse to be one we'd like to be in ourselves: a cozy, relaxed, coffee aroma-infused lounge. You can drive by for a quick pick-up or stay, sip and savour a delicious cafe latte, cuban espresso or herbal tea. While here you can kick back and listen to an eclectic playlist with the likes of Astrud Gilberto, Otis Redding, Dexter Gordon, Vanessa Da Mata, Bob Marley, Irma Thomas and more. Plus, you'll find an array of Suraiya's delicious homemade baked goods, sweets and snacks. We offer free WIFI and a relaxed atmosphere perfectly suited to a short or long timeout from a busy day. 

We'll see you soon.
