Sip & Sonder will be one of many new dining options available in Downtown Disney, the OC Register reported. The open date has not yet been announced but, the article estimates completion in late 2024.
This will be the coffee house’s third location – or fourth if you include the coffee cart available at the Jean-Michel Basquiat KING PLEASURE Exhibition in Los Angeles. Sip & Sonder is owned by Amanda-Jane Thomas and Shanita Nicholas. The two became friends in law school, and eventually joined forces for the creation of this business in 2017. Now, the Black women-owned coffee brand has reached a global audience with its unique roasts and beautifully branded digital content.
The website explains the name, defining ‘sonder’ as the realization that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own. The name is a perfect match for the shop’s vibe and purpose, which the website explains as “entrepreneurial and creative hubs where creatives, entrepreneurs, freelancers, curators, and everyone in between can simply exist, grab a cup of coffee, connect, create, and put sonder into action.”
Sip & Sonder’s selection of coffee, tea, drinkware, apparel and more is available at www.sipandsonder.com.
