About Us: The Origin of Lupi

In a world where authenticity is often undervalued, Lupi emerged from a deep love and passion for true quality. It represents a blend of tradition and innovation. Think of a traditional Italian espresso bar but with a modern twist. And the most important feature? The proud emblem of a pack of wolves, the ultimate symbol of togetherness and community spirit.

For many, introducing so many unique features might seem overwhelming, like “biting off more than you can chew.” However, at Lupi, every detail is carefully chosen and serves a purpose. Instead of hay, our fork is laden with coffee beans, a source of inspiration and energy that we can never get enough of.

A Journey Through the Streets

The very first Lupi branch came to life in December 2021, nestled on the charming Damlaan in Leidschendam. The response was overwhelming, leading to the quick opening of a second branch on Haarlemmerstraat in Leiden. Both locations are not only beautiful places to enjoy quality coffee but also to capture special moments at the unique ‘photo spot for social media.’

The journey didn’t stop there. The next stop was Noordeinde in The Hague. Here, in the heart of the city, Lupi’s third branch opened its doors, with a special focus on Take-Away. Perfect for those on the go but still wanting to savor their coffee moment. Additionally, this branch offers a cozy, heated terrace where visitors can settle in, even during the colder months.

With a concept that is both intriguing and heartwarming, it was clear that Lupi needed to be shared with the world. That’s why the opportunity to be part of this movement was extended through a franchise model. For those interested, the door is always open; contact us here.

At Lupi, everything revolves around love, respect, and loyalty. These values are the foundation of how we treat our customers and how we function as a team. Imagine a pack of wolves, always vigilant, always caring, always together. That’s the essence of what Lupi represents.

Join the pack and become a part of our story. We’re waiting for you.
