VWI by Chad Wang is a busy cafe—always full while remaining incredibly well-balanced with spacious and delicate interiors. Even at night their lighting creates a bright environment that’s still homey and easy on the eyes. There’s an air of serenity that’s lost with many superstar cafes. The cafe maintains a high attention to detail with true minimalism in its purest form, very much translating the demeanor of owner and World Brewers Cup Champion, Chad Wang. If you ever see him serve coffee, you’ll easily notice he’s a very calm, collected, and clean barista; and all of those qualities come across in VWI’s space. Everything is brewed downstairs while all the seating is upstairs. And there’s a brewing area surrounded by stools so you can watch the barista brew your single-origin coffee if you like. The overall experience is a holistic and fulfilling, so please don’t fail to soak it in.
