Translated from Latin, "Sine Cura" means "without a care", which is likely to be true of anyone enjoying a snack or a sip in this sun-dappled downtown Eugene café. Baristas brewing spice-enhanced, signature coffee drinks from organic beans roasted locally by Cafeto Coffee Company’s caffeine-breathing dragons. Made-from-scratch pastries rise each morning in Sine Cura's ovens, and the eatery's kitchen lovingly prepares a changing menu of savory breakfast wraps, gourmet lunch wraps, homemade soups, and salads drizzled with house-made dressings. Wide windows, warm wood floors, and artistically embellished walls make Sine Cura a perfect spot to sip chai with a friend or catch up on reading a sibling's diary.
Guests line up at the self-serve machines that stretch across Top City Frozen Yogurt Cafe’s lime-green wall, clutching their spoon in anticipation as they wait to fill their cups with swirls of YoCream frozen yogurt. After choosing from 12 rotating flavors—including no-sugar-added and sorbet options—they head over to the topping bar in the center of the room and cap their creations with crunchy cereal or candy.
Over at the serving counter, blenders whirr as they mix whole berries, peaches, and pineapples with yogurt or sorbet in smoothies. Frappes bring the buzz as they sub out the smoothie’s fruit for freshly roasted brews from Sisters Coffee Company. Guests can enjoy their frozen treats while sitting on a plush leather couch or taking advantage of free WiFi to search phrases such as “where does yogurt come from?” and “will brain freeze kill me?”.
Blac Sheep Coffee brews up steaming cups of organic joe for mobile guests rolling past their drive-thru espresso shop.

Each piping-hot or frosty drink culminates from all-natural and organic ingredients that Blac Sheep Coffee acquires, as often as possible, from local artisans such as Cascade Estate Coffees, Umpqua Dairy, and Mountain Rose Herbs.
