Convoy’s New Cafe Stems brings Global Flavor to fast-casual

A new concept has emerged in kearny mesa that aims to add a healthy option to the diverse food offerings in the neighborhood. Local contractor and realtor Dave Zecha, along with his cousin and business partner Michelle Racca, have soft opened cafe stems which replaces a former fruit shop in one of convoy street’s more bustling centers.




“Cafe Stems recently soft opened, replacing The Fruit Shop on Convoy Street. The quick-service restaurant focuses on a healthy menu of salads, Japanese rice balls, smoothie bowls and more.

Normally I’m not a big salad person, but it’s the start of a new year and I was intrigued by a few of the salads that had an Asian spin to them.”
