Santa Clara Public Health Office announced Monday the “shelter-in-place” policy.  It’s a policy that will blanket the entire Bay Area to help mitigate the exponential spread rate of Sars-COV-2 virus that causes the COVID-19 update.  All non-essential businesses are asked to cease operations, and everyone is asked to remain at home unless there is an essential need to leave (i.e. groceries, food, or medical needs).  Only essential travel is allowed, and public transit will continue.  Above all, please practice social distancing (staying six feet apart as best as possible) when out in the public to prevent the spread of disease from person to person.

What does this mean from LR?

Food establishments can and will continue to operate. We will be maintaining our new practices to minimize contamination and spread of the disease with the utmost vigilance.  Everything will now be served in disposable containers and handled by the staff.  We ask that you only linger long enough to pick up your treats, say a quick hi, and wait until you reach your car to consume your goodies. Our team will be using disposable gloves to protect ourselves and you.  And our shop will be regularly cleaned and sanitized throughout the day.  Our operating standards will continuous be updated to uphold the regulations set forth by the health department.  

More importantly, we will continue to stay open for as long as we can!  We will maintain normal operations.  Our crafting hours may change day-to-day, so please continue to call to check for updates.  It would also be a good idea to call and check if we have the pastry you’re looking for in stock. 

Currently, we are crafting drinks and pastries with the following schedule:

  • Monday: Closed
  • Tuesday: 8 am – 3 pm
  • Wednesday: 8 am – 3 pm
  • Thursday: 8 am – 3 pm
  • Friday: 8 am – 3 pm
  • Saturday: 8 am – 3 pm
  • Sunday: 9 am – 1 pm

Our team began Living Room Coffee Craft with the vision to connect.  Thus, we want to be here for you, our community, as much as possible, as long as possible.   In times like these, we all need a little bit of sanity and a big smile.  We hope to provide the opportunity for you to escape from cabin fever for a couple of minutes while picking up a little energy with a drink and pastry.

This ever-growing situation serves to remind all of us that we are in this together.  I encourage you to find ways to continue to connect with one another through technology.  Phone calls, video chats, and text messages are great ways to keep in contact with your family and friends.  We are not alone.  You are not alone.

We are stronger together.  But, stay six feet apart.

And if possible, please help support local small businesses around you!
