    ‘What? Café’ menu boasts music, has become a popular hangout for young adults, state workers, others

    February 23, 2015
    By: Aerika Miles

    What? Café is beloved by many local students in Tallahassee. Coffee, tea, pastries and the famous fried rice are specialties at the café.

    A Tallahassee native and humanities major at Tallahassee Community College, Delano Hughes, has come to the popular spot every Friday since her junior year of high school.

    “All my friends come here and I know the staff really well. It’s a comfortable spot to hang out and be who you are,” Hughes said.

    The café started as a place to play music in the community and to have drinks. Two Florida State graduates created the venue, then became owners. Later on, art and Asian culture was added to the project.

    Most of the drinks are Asian-related. The unusual name of the restaurant was a sudden decision - and the owners found the name interesting.

    Current owner of What? Café, Kahlil Seymour put his own spin on the café to make it what it is today.

    “I like the diversity here. We get business professionals, state workers to young adults and college students every day. This is something for everybody. People get coffees, mochas, or smoothies and get work done, have meetings, or just to chill.”

    The CEO continued, “We are a place of entertainment also, not a restaurant - however our food is really good.”

    The popular items on the menu are the mango smoothies, honey green tea, and fried rice.
