While many DePauw students flock to Cafe Roy for their caffeine fix, there’s another spot that exudes warmth and familiarity - Cafe Allegro. At the heart of this cozy place are Ginny and Brian, affectionately known as the “parents” of Allegro.

Ginny and Brian aren’t just your ordinary cafe staff; they’re the friendly faces that greet every customer with genuine smiles and cheerful banter. They possess a special ability to remember each customer’s name and favorite drink, making every visit feel like a homecoming. It’s this personal touch that sets Allegro apart and creates a sense of belonging that keeps students and faculty coming back day after day. 

What truly sets Ginny and Brian apart is their interest in connecting with students from all walks of life. Brian's linguistic talents add an extra layer of charm to the Allegro experience. Fluent in conversational Vietnamese and Japanese, he delights students with a friendly "Xin chào" or "Konnichiwa" when he recognizes their background. It's these small gestures that forge meaningful connections and make Allegro feel like more than just a place to grab a coffee.

But Allegro isn't just about familiar faces and warm greetings; it's also a hub of creativity and innovation. Ginny and Brian love to experiment with secret recipes, delighting adventurous customers with unique recipes like the "galaxy drink." This heavenly creation combines whole milk, cold brew, whipping cream, and a sprinkle of magic on top, creating a beverage that's as visually stunning as it is delicious. Next time you visit Allegro, don't hesitate to ask about their latest secret menu offerings – you never know what delightful surprises await.

In a bustling campus environment where students often feel like just another face in the crowd, Ginny and Brian are beacons of light, reminding us of the power of human connection and genuine hospitality. Their unwavering dedication to creating a welcoming space where students can unwind, recharge, and connect with others embodies the spirit of DePauw's close-knit community.

So the next time you find yourself craving an exciting café experience, venture beyond the familiar confines of Café Roy and discover the magic of Allegro. Whether you're in need of a caffeine fix, a friendly chat, or a taste of something new, Ginny and Brian will be there to welcome you with open arms and a warm smile.
