You could say that the downtown café, Vice Versa, is putting a new spin on the java business.
The shop, which held a soft-opening on Saturday in historic St. Paul’s Square, not only serves lattes, but also sells new and used vinyl records, as well as “loving energy”, according to its owners.
Located at 123 Heiman St., Vice Versa is the centerpiece project of San Antonio couple Vincent Guerrero and Jonabelle Timms. The latter is the beautician behind Beauty Haus, an inclusive beauty studio located in the space above the café.
“It was an energizing day for sure,” Timms said of the soft open. “A huge turnout with lines at the door, a live vinyl DJ and our Rose Buddy Matcha [latte] was an absolute success.
For the opener, Guerrero and Timms served matcha lattes and sips as well as almond, chocolate and matcha croissants from locally owned Hal’s Bakery. As will always be the case in the shop, guests were invited to browse and listen to its extensive collection of vinyl records while sipping.
This week, Vice Versa will be open from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Hours are expected to expand over the next few weeks.
