À la Sake San Jose 2010, Roy’s Station on 5th and Jackson will be offering a free cup of drip coffee to all participants of Sake San Jose. Stop by after the event up until 9PM and show them your wristband, and finish off the night with a different kind of brew. (Black?? With cream? Sugar?) Thanks, Roy’s!
Roy’s Station Coffee and Teas is built on the historic site of a gas station run by Roy Murotsune and his brothers, from post WWII to 1990. The closing of the gas station left the spot mostly vacant, after years of being a Japantown landmark. The coffee shop has emerged to breathe new life into the location and is run by Carole Rast, daughter of Murotsune, and some of her family. They continue the spot’s tradition of fueling customers, this time with with a different source of energy, which includes coffee from Barefoot Coffee Roasters, tea from Teance, assorted pastries, and Japanese snacks from Tengu Sushi. Roy’s Station is open daily, and on May 26th will be serving customers until 9PM.
