About Vargas Cafe

In 2010, Janet Vargas traveled to Italy and became captivated with Italian coffee bars and the romance of the coffee experience. She had a vision to bring the Italian coffeehouse tradition back to the United States. A place for conversation and a sense of community. A third place between work and home. In 2011, Janet established Vargas Cafe in Arlington Heights, IL.


In 2015, Aaron Gutierrez fell in love with Vargas Cafe and partnered with Janet Vargas to expand the cafe.
