Background

Cafe Orso is an independently owned European style cafe located in scenic Deep Cove, North Vancouver, Canada. They offer a cool, comfortable and friendly urban space where you can feel at home as you relax and enjoy locally sourced coffee and food selections.

Challenge

Jonathan and Lori wanted a simple website that captured the vibe they were going for: community, artisanal, awesome, high-quality and locally sourced food/beverages. They wanted simple and fast ways of updating their website which included putting a strong emphasis on their Instagram account.

Solution

The solution was a one-page WordPress website that captured the community vibe they were looking for. Their Instagram feed is a main component on the home page that shows the latest events and menu items at the cafe. They’re very pleased with the site and have over tripled their website traffic since its launch. The website was budget-friendly and had a quick turn around to coordinate with the opening of the cafe. Since launch, we’ve added a newsletter signup, newsletter campaign, and added the menu and live events to the website
