The original location for this expanding Sacramento company was once a warehouse for another Sacramento pioneer: Eppie’s Restaurant. Now with four local sites, they’re a Sacramento success story. Not just a coffee house, the “Alley” is home to their baking and roasting operations, retail café, educational center, and event venue. Old Soul Co. emphasizes and practices local, artisan craftsmanship in brewing, roasting, and just about everything they do (and that’s pretty cool!).
