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.

Artist of the month - ART SHOW
For February and March, we decided to do something new: our very first Progressive Art Show!
For the occasion we're partnering up with our friends and neighbors at Rogers+Ryan where two local artists will share some wall space.
Sumi A. Kawaguchi, a self-described unintentional artist, utilizes her past, present, and vision of the future to shape her pieces. Sumi enjoys deconstructing her memories and life experiences and putting them back together on canvas. She appreciates looking at a completed piece knowing that there are many stories or funny conversations blended together with color and texture.
Her work started out as (and remains) a hobby and an outlet for her to remove herself from the monotonous day to day routine. She create pieces that she would personally gravitate towards in galleries and stores, and models each panel with a modern yet accessible feel. Thanks to her brother’s encouragement, she's bringing her work out of seclusion and into the public eye for all to experience.
Our second artist is Daniel Lowery, who showed once before, and is now coming back with a brand new collection: a landscape designer by day, Daniel's inspiration comes from many directions, but mostly from the natural elements that can be seen in his panels.
