Two Friends + One Dream = Pork Belly Cafe

Established in November of 2015, Pork Belly Cafe is the first venture of two restaurant industry veterans. After a combined 40+ years of delivering solid results for other restaurant and business owners, Chris Chwirut and Kristian Morgan decided to strike out on their own. They shared a desire to begin a new path with food and service back at the center of the experience. After many, many months of planning, the right space and time presented themselves and Pork Belly brand was born; the first concept being Pork Belly Cafe. The food, coffee, and the atmosphere do not disappoint either of these guys. They promise not to disappoint you! Come see for yourself what quality and value look like in the tastiest of packages. Together, Chris and Kristian intend to bring back a personal touch to the community that they now call home at Pork Belly Cafe!
