Koffeteria is the brain-child of pastry chef Vanarin Kuch. Growing up as the child of Cambodian refugees, food served as an anchor to bring his family together. Kuch rose to prominence early in his career as the opening pastry chef at Tiny Boxwoods, and national audiences got to know him from appearances on Top Chef: Just Desserts and Chopped. After years away at top kitchens in New York and Chicago, he returns to his hometown to open Koffeteria.
His shop welcomes people into the East Downtown neighborhood, where his relatives used to operate seafood & doughnut shops. Showcasing beautiful mid-century furniture in an industrial setting, this upscale bakery is an inviting place for visitors to enjoy a dessert in style. His food is often as whimsical as it is ambitious, but always brings bold flavors into balance.
