Whether you’re a coffee drinker on the run, a student looking for a mellow study spot, or a musician aiming to showcase your talent, look no further than Zebra House Café.
Unlike Starbucks, Zebra House brews unique cultural blends like the Hawaiian Ka’u Typica and the Mexican Mocha. Savanah Hapsic, Junior from SCHS who works at Zebra, notes, “when in doubt, the iced Venetian is the way to go!” If you’re just looking for an average dark or medium roast, Zebra offers the same cup for about forty cents less than neighboring coffee spots.
Unlike Starbucks or Surfin’ Donuts, Zebra also has a running drive through for on-the-go customers. Junior Nick Melanson states, “Before a long day of surfing Sano, I always drive through Zebra for my coffee fix.” Taste, cost, and convenience-wise, Zebra House blows away neighboring coffee spots.
Every first and third Friday night of every month, many SCHS students and alumni perform at Zebra’s open mic night. Andrew Hall, Lindsay Macdonald, Grace Freeman, and Draco Tudor are no strangers to the Zebra House stage.
Last month, Zebra also held a “Customer Appreciation Day” where local band The Boojum Brothers (consisting of SCHS senior Tanner Diehl) performed in the parking lot in front of a crowd of about fifty customers. That night, all drinks were on the house. Diehl reflects on their performance, remarking, “great vibes all around that night. Zebra never fails to hook it up!”
