Holly Yashi will soon be celebrating the grand opening of Cafe Presto, housed in a one-of-a-kind, imported and restored Piaggio vehicle. To create their amazing coffee drinks, the advanced La Speziale S40 Suprema espresso machine, was imported especially for Holly Yashi and is the only one in North America.

Cafe Presto is at the historic Twinkle building at 1300 9th Street and will serve delicious espresso drinks paired with exceptional hospitality, along with assorted pastries and baked goods from Ramones and North Coast Bakery.

The Twinkle building housed a button factory in the early 1900s and has now been beautifully restored. Holly Hosterman and Paul Libitz experienced a similar mobile espresso cafe while on a Plein Air painting vacation in Italy and decided to recreate the unrivaled experience here in Arcata.

You can come and see the Piaggio truck from 6 to 9 p.m. on Arts! Arcata August 12 and see prints by Libby George at Twinkle, 1300 9th St. Arcata
