What we're about

Business Meets Beer and Coffee is a FREE after-hours event that taps into the local nightlife and energy. Held the fourth Friday of every month in Salt Lake City and the second Friday in Ogden. We choose a different bar or pub to make business connections have a weekend flair. Meet up at 5:30 PM and never at the same place twice.

Then on the first Thursday of the month at 7:45 AM meet at various locations for "Coffee and Connections." The coffee is fabulous, and the breakfast hits the spot. Get ready to chat through morning introductions of other small business owners and professionals

Our rules are simple. Have fun, get to know other people in a casual setting. We ask that you don't push your services or business. Network but realize that the ROI comes from forming relationships, not promoting your business or services.

Join us each month to socialize with other business professionals at a local establishment.

Coffee and Connections at Mestizo Coffee House

Mestizo Coffee House

Mestizo’s Coffeehouse lives because YOU CARE! Mestizo Coffeehouse opened just two months before the second largest financial crisis in US history. And then just as we were getting our bearings, our entire neighborhood was put under construction to better the infrastructure and install TRAX on Salt Lake’s West Side. YEAH! A BRAND NEW SAFE small BRIDGE :-) As much as we love these fabulous improvements, we struggled greatly to keep our doors open during these difficult times. And if it were not for YOU we would not still be here. YOU your love of our coffee and space, and your desire to support a community organization and coffeehouse, to support community building, has made a tremendous difference. For this reason we humbly bow our heads to all of you and say THANKS! AS North Temple, Trax, and the new bridge completes we will be improving our Menu, our Website, our offerings, and our outreach.

Coffee and Connections (Holiday Change) Gourmandise

Gourmandise The Bakery

Gourmandise is owned by the Hanssen family. The Hanssen family has been in the baking business for twenty-five years. After immigrating to the United States from South Africa, Pete & Wanda Hanssen opened what quickly became Peoria, Illinois' most popular bakery. After growing up working in the family business, their youngest son, Vernon, headed West after college in pursuit of the mountains. After years of dining and enjoying the pastries and desserts at what was then called The Bakery, the Hanssen's had become friends with Jean-Jacques Grossi, the head Chef. So in 2006, when the opportunity to buy the Salt Lake City restaurant with Jean Jacques staying on as the Executive Chef arose, Vernon, his wife Hally and parents partnered up and the rest is history.
