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: Jiamin Zhu
For the months of May and June, we’re proud to present: The silk road: a collection of photographs by Jiamin Zhu.
Jiamin is a self-taught photographer who loves to work with local models, makeup artists, hair stylists, designers, and wardrobe stylists in the greater Seattle area. She especially enjoys the process when talent gets together to execute and produce results beyond a single individual's imagination. Jiamin specializes in portraiture, fine art, and everything naturally beautiful in the Northwest.
The Silk Road was an ancient network of trade routes, playing a significant role in the development of civilizations. Ideas flourished along the Silk Road. Drawing from that inspiration, she named this show The Silk Road, because her process of making art involves viewpoint exchanges and cultural fusion.
These photos are reflections of fairy tales and fantasies encountered on her personal journey of cultural migration from the East to the West.

Join us for an afternoon of art and drinks on June 11th. The artist will be in attendance.
