When the spark of a good idea ignites some dry tinder, it only takes some added fuel and a little stoking to create a burning hot fire. As is true with wood-fire pizza ovens, so it goes for a coffee-fueled joint venture with our friends at A Tavola Bar + Trattoria. Built with espresso service in mind, A Tavola's second location in Madeira has been waiting for the right way to deliver the level of quality you've come to expect from their outrageously good food, craft cocktails and dining environments in OTR and now in Madeira. 'Hey, let's do a pop-up cafe!'
At the beginning of October, Deeper Roots occupied the bar at A Tavola and we've been serving stellar coffee with our signature style to those who may have heard the rumors and wandered in. The rumors are true - we are open at 7am every morning and our 'baristas in residence' are happy to serve up a selction of fare: coffee of the day, pour-over options, full espresso menu, iced coffee on tap, select teas and creative signature drinks. We have house-made baked goods to compliment: olive oil cakes, biscotti, pumpkin muffins with spiced mascarpone and amazing toaster pastries.
The environment is gorgeous, the atmosphere is lively and the coffee is, of course, compelling. If you work from home, you can come work here. If you have kids, they are welcome. If you are on the way, if you are meeting a friend, if you need a break, if you want good coffee, we would love to host you. We're calling it a Coffee Residency or Pop-Up - on the one hand, it's a social experiment; on the other, it's essentially as if the vision of A Tavola serving delicoius coffee and epsresso is now on fire.

Come in for coffee, enjoy the community space and stick around for pizza!
