Reader Stef let me know that Carp Moon Cafe has opened at 4991 Carpinteria Avenue in Carpinteria, the former home of Juice N Things and Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf. I am told that the restaurant and coffee shop is having a soft opening this week. Seasonal and local is the theme at Carp Moon Cafe. “We refuse to compromise on quality in our Coffee Shop,” says owner Laura Samperio. “That’s why we source our fresh ingredients from local farmers’ markets. No matter what time of year, you can be sure you’re eating the best of the season.” Carp Moon Cafe is available for dine-in or take-out. “We have worked to package our meals in a way that lets you bring the quality of our meals into your home,” says Samperio. “We always love to see you in person, but even when we can’t we ensure that your dining experience is top notch. With many years of experience serving in the finest restaurants, our staff is excited to present their vision to you and all our guests.” Carp Moon Cafe is open 8:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m.
