Swift Creek Café is a place of character, art, family and community. And it’s a restaurant that’s about more than just food, but about family. The Moreno Halphen family has been in the food and coffee industry for over 80 years, and their love and dedication to the craft is always evident, from the flavors in the menu to the décor of the Café itself.
Their story began with their maternal grandmother, who founded Finca Don Bosco, a coffee estate on the Talamanca Range between Panama and Costa Rica. Sonny and Choly Moreno inherited this family business, and they, along with their four sons, elevated the estate’s coffee production both domestically and internationally. They created an outstanding product while always staying focused on their values: tradition, conservation, sustainability and respect for the land.
In the early 1990s, Guillermo Moreno opened Café Don Bosco in Houston. This quaint, family-friendly neighborhood café served the Moreno family coffee, as well as breakfast and lunch. Less than a year after its opening, the Café received the “Best Hole in the Wall” honors.
Today, the family tradition is being carried forward by award-winning Executive Chef, Christian Moreno, who earned his degree from the top French pastry program, “Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Påtisserie” in Yssingeaux, France. He brings to Whitefish the extensive culinary experience he gained while working for and training under world-class chefs across the United States.
Guillermo and his son Christian, along with their wives and founding members, Lindy and Melissa, welcome you to Swift Creek Café. They hope that, in taking a seat at their table, you share your own passion for great food, delicious coffee and welcoming community, and become a part of their extended culinary family.
