What’s with the pigeon and the lion?

The motto of Courage and Soar came over the course of a decade of conversation between owners Kayla and Alex Benda. Kayla loved the saying, “Courage doesn’t always roar” to describe her personality. At a concert one summer, Alex said out of the blue, “You know, even pigeons soar.” The next morning it all came together.

Where else should I go when I’m downtown?

There are a ton of amazing restaurants and things to do downtown. Grab a glass of wine from The House of Wine or grab some brunch from Little Bird. Check out Oh, Hello Paper & Gifts next door or wander down to the Vault of Midnight for your board game needs. Or ask one of our stylists what they recommend while you’re visiting C&S.
