A Few Words About Us and our history
At Caffè Torino, we want you to feel the warmth and taste the flavors of this beautiful Northern Italian city. Torino is much more than FIAT, the Holy Shroud and the 2006 Winter Olympics.
The spirit of this region with its complex history and traditions is what we have captured, in our own way, at Caffè Torino. So come on by and get a little taste.
Arte & Vino at Caffe TorinoIn January 2013 we started a new series of Art and Wine here in South Lake Union, featuring pieces from local artists at the cafe for everyone to enjoy while sipping on a glass of their favorite beverage.

Artists of the month: Vanessa Harvey and Claire Showalter
For the months of September and October, we’re proud to present:
Memories of water by Vanessa Harvey, and Landscape & Particle Studies, by Claire Showalter.
In Vanessa's words:
As a swimmer and a rower, I find myself drawn to water. My favorite memories are of water. Calm water, rough water, ponds, creeks, oceans, water at night, water at day break. This is a tribute to my love and fascination with water.
In Claire's words:
In these investigations, color and movement leave but an impression, remaining vague through the looseness of the material. These smaller, iterative studies of individual movements and ideas are part of a longer series of work as a richer, more dimensioned narrative of pieced together moments continues to be explored and developed.
If you are interested in displaying your art, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, send a few samples of your work/portfolio and we'll get back to you.
