Ready to hear more about Thought in Motion, the dreamy new coffee bar on Valley Road that I initially thought was an interior designer’s workspace?
Yeah, me too … so I made time for a sit down with Owner and Creator Jaye Regincos, a Private Thought Coach for 14 years.
“What are you trying to convey in this magical space?” I asked. And we were off …
” Thought In Motion Creation Boutique was my private practice,” Jaye shared. “Thought In Motion is a Creation Café designed to empower others to become aware of their thoughts, choices and actions — and have a clear understanding of how they show up in your life. The café is now a whole new experience. I want to empower others to show them how they can enhance their lives by [means of] the powerful inner choices they make.”
But can you just stop in and grab a coffee?
“Yeah, that’s cool too!” Jaye laughed. “We are introducing coffee now and light fare will be available [in] May. You can enjoy a beverage which has passed through crystal-infused water energized with specific intentions, [which are] focused emotions placed in the water. People can learn how to create their reality through experiences that introduce new ideas and empowering lessons.”
Check this out: guests may bring their Poland Spring bottles to the stunning blue, white and grey tiled Water Bar at the heart of Thought in Motion and “fill ’em up” from their customized rose quartz filtration system.
But back to the café component: “The coffee is from Café Umbria, the cappuccino and espresso are from Caffè Borbone, imported from Italy,” Jaye offered up. “We believe that what you think about food is as important as what you eat and have chosen a menu of balance that introduces healthy food as well as delicious baked goods to remind you that life is sweet.”
What will the menu look like?
They’re still developing it, but an early iteration includes comfort classics like chicken + egg salad sandwiches, yogurt parfaits, smoothie bowls, bagels, croissants, cookies and quiche.
Currently open Monday to Friday from noon to 7 p.m., Thought in Motion will soon expand their hours – and service — Monday through Saturday from 8 a.m.to 8 p.m.
So how did the idea of a cappuccino spot percolate?
Jaye’s delightful response: “I added every single thing I love into one space: good friends, yummy food, music … I don’t want to complicate things. We’re making our space accessible for everyone. Everybody should have a place that makes a difference in their lives -meaning, a good environment where they feel safe, at peace, comfortable and amongst nice people.”
