On June 1st, 2020, Urban Roast opened its doors amidst the pandemic, which presented an even greater challenge for the three brothers behind the business. Their hard-working parents migrated from Palestine and instilled in them the importance of never giving up on their dreams. Despite the restrictions imposed by COVID-19, the brothers were determined to provide a unique experience to every customer who walked through their doors. They achieved this by regularly updating their decorations and offering seasonal cocktails. As a small, family-owned business, they strive to continuously improve and bring the best to their customers.
