    So excited to be joining Point Richmond with its rich sense of community and artists. Kaleidoscope Coffee will be a destination coffee shop truly built around the community, with regular storytelling events, local music, and local art on the walls. YOU are part of the space and part of the story. Like my FB page and stay tuned for more exciting developments!

Kaleidoscope Coffee is a place of community, drawn together around good food, good drinks, stories and smiles.  Coffee shop/ice cream parlor during the day; performance venue/comfy hang-out place at night. With a focus on high-quality, craftsman, local products, Kaleidoscope carries and serves Tara’s Organic Ice Cream, Wrecking Ball Coffee, Bacano’s pastries, and more, including their own colorful menu creations like beet hummus and blueberry salsa, as well as a selection of beer and wine.  With a love of stories, storytelling, and the arts in general, Kaleidoscope will have weekly open mics, monthly storytelling, music and whatever else people from the community want to bring to the stage and the space.  We can’t wait to meet to you – come in, unwind, enjoy something delicious – be part of community, be part of art.


Storyteller Cassie Cushing brings to life traditional stories for adult and young adult audiences.  She finds the personal in the traditional and creates unique retellings for the contemporary audience, entering the world of “Once upon a time” to go beyond happily ever after.  She is opening a storytelling coffee shop – Kaleidoscope Coffee – in the quaint, artistic neighborhood of Pt. Richmond.

HoldingMoonAncient Myths and Folktales reverberate with time-tested messages – understandings of life, love, identity and adventure.  Stories, in general, are for everyone, but some are not meant for little ears.  So, take a night off, leave the children at home, and come to a different, but nonetheless, real world of (sometimes) dark discoveries and dazzling adventures.

Cassie loves the way stories bring people together.  She especially loves to tell old stories – myths and folktales that used to exist in an oral culture.  As a coffee professional and devotee for 10 years, she is working towards opening a coffee shop that will feature regular storytelling events.

  • Word on the Street

    • “There is simply no comparison—Kaleidoscope coffee is fantastic. Maybe I didn’t realize how bitter the bag of Starbucks was, maybe I had begun to misinterpret bitter for strong. In the past, when my coffee got cold, I would toss it. The Kaleidoscope roast doesn’t get cold! Thank you, Cassie. You will do well!” — Mindy Lang, 21st Century Vitamins
    • “ You've got me hooked: I ran out of your coffee, had to return to what was around here and I actually thought at first that my french press has soap in it. Dumped it out, rinse, new pot, same soapy taste. Yikes. or should I say: yuck!” — Irene Walsh
