We will have a tea hour every Tuesday evening from 5:30 to 6:30 pm. We envision lively, fun, short bursts of energy on these evenings; Cafe Ohlone will offer seasonal East Bay gathered Native teas, traditional small bites and contemporary Indigenous music to end your day. As with any event at Cafe Ohlone, we will keep the hour focused on living Ohlone culture and identity.
