DEEP WEST VANCOUVER ROOTS

Located in a striking sloped-roof mid-century-modern building built in 1962, over the years our building has served as a shopping centre, post office, convenience store, pharmacy, and auto service centre for West Vancouverites and pleasure seekers exploring the seaside and mountains of West Vancouver.

REJUVENATING A COMMUNITY ICON

Now a 60 year old building, we rejuvenated and modernized the property in 2022 to serve as a community gathering place and a destination cafe bistro for adventure seekers of all kinds.

A FUN ITALIAN-GERMAN COLLABORATION

Our name comes from the Isetta micro-car, a collaboration between an Italian motorcycle and appliance manufacturer and BMW in the 1950's. If you pay attention, you might be able to see our namesake driving around West Vancouver.

Our team

With a background in the fashion industry, Thomas focused his passion for cycling, food and coffee by running the legendary Musette Caffé from 2012 to 2022. Thomas grew up on the North Shore and attended high school in West Vancouver, and is extremely excited to be returning to the community.

Thomas Eleizegui

Born and raised in Vancouver, Ryan grew a passion for food after seeing restaurants like Lumière take off. With experience cooking at Hawksworth restaurant, and Toronto’s famed Canoe, Ryan brings to the table a new wave french vibe, while also playing into his Italian roots. Try the carbonara!
