Here is a throwback to our 2015 interview with Clabe!
Interview by Venice Paparazzi’s Alex Stowell
The Cow’s End Cafe has been serving coffee, sandwiches, smoothies and more to Venice and MDR residents for 29 years. It is a beloved institution where the locals hang. Today we are going to meet the man who started it all, Clabe Hartley. Clabe is a pit bull loving, life long martial artist who listens to the Eagles, likes to eat lobster and cites The Godfather as his favorite movie.
Years later, when Clabe eloped with his wife Thea, it was a priest and Sensei Ohshima that presided over the ceremony in Little Tokyo.
So, drawing on his memories of Panama and Chicago as coffee houses being a “community gathering for culture,” The Cows End was born.
Stop by the Cow’s End Cafe and say hi to Clabe!
“It’s not just The Cow Coffee, it’s the Experience.”
