The Dam Cafe

Web Design  |  Web Development

The Dam Cafe is an institution in the mountain town of Tahoe City, California. Visitors and locals flock to this breakfast spot daily to pick up a quick bite on the way to the mountain or sit and chat which an old friend. When COVID shutdowns forced them to close their doors in mid-2020, they knew they had to pivot their offerings to accommodate take-out only and online ordering. With the help of an online order management system – Toast, the Dam Cafe team was able to get their business back on track.

The Website

Design Strategy

I created a site to drive users to the online ordering system and give customers the feeling that they’re back in the cafe enjoying a cup of fresh coffee. Utilizing visuals of fresh baked goods and steaming coffee, I worked with The Dam Cafe team to create this brand aligning online experience. The site features an about section as well as a full and filterable menu and contact page.
