Welcome to Cafe Banc, Your Local Coffee Shop and Tea Room. In 2016, my mom and I opened Cafe Banc in San Jose. In 2019, we re-located to Saratoga, CA. Prior to opening the cafe, I worked as a Community Banker for over a decade. My mom Alaina has always been an entrepreneur and amazing cook (I'm slightly biased, but our customers would probably agree). Transitioning from a stable career to small business ownership was very challenging for me, to say the least. I have a new found appreciation for small business owners and what they do for this Great Country.

Cafe Banc is Your Community Hub. Contact us if you are an artist, chef, barrista, coffee or tea afficionado, free-lancer, SMB/SME owner, student, teacher, service member, professional or community member who wants to get involved. Cafe Banc features student art for sale as a way to promote the arts, entrepreneurship and financial literacy. Student artists receive 100% of all proceeds from their art sales.
