In the early 1900's, the warehouse we now call home manufactured tin cans. Our space was the boiler room for the factory.
In 2007, we moved into the space on the corner of 3rd and 22nd streets, which had been Monice's Chinese cafeteria for the previous two decades. A talented crew of local crafts people started peeling back the layers of the past 100 years. Serpentine rock was found throughout the foundation and our name was born.
Chef Deepak's distinct menus are inspired by closely collaborating with local farms, ranches and artisans.
Partnering with quality purveyors is not only good for our global community, but their products just taste better.
Our bar features thoughtful selections sourced from boutique wineries, craft brewers and small batch distilleries.

Once medical school bound, Deepak had to break it to his parents that he wanted to be a chef, not a doctor. His parents, first generation from Kashmir, didn't take the news well at first, but once the decision was made, Deepak didn't look back. He has worked in Cambridge, Massachusetts, New York City, London and locally at Jardiniére and Nettie's Crab Shack. Deepak's use of international spices from Thai chiles to fenugreek, as well as global cooking techniques like Japanese pickling methods add international twists to traditional American fare.
Selah was one of the original managers when Serpentine opened in 2007. Not only did she help with the finishing touches of the space (including sewing curtains!) she also doubled as pastry chef for several years in the beginning. Now as the GM for both Slow Club and Serpentine, her time is spent making sure our guests have the best experience we can offer...and she still makes delicious fruit jam in her spare time.
After eight years of owning and operating Slow Club, Erin discovered an ad on Craigslist for a cafe for sale in Dogpatch. After seeing the potential of the space and neighborhood, Erin got started recreating a similar style gathering place as Slow Club. While the market driven menus and casual vibe are crafted in the same manner as Slow Club, Serpentine has its own personality. Erin feels grateful to be part of the strong community in Dogpatch.
