Q. What does the name mean?
A. Jessie grew up on Birch Road in Delafield, and Banyan is a very popular tree in Hawaii - one of her favorite places. It's the combination of two sentimental value, happy places.
Q. Where does your coffee and food come from?
A. Our wonderful coffee comes from the award-winning Anodyne Coffee Roasters, in Milwaukee. Our tea is from Rishi, also in Milwaukee.

We're all about supporting local!

Q. Do you ever host pop-up events?
