    Does anyone know anything about this new coffee-shop?

    I’ve seen their postings on Craigslist looking for employees, and I went by the other night (Grant and Broad St.). They have decals on the door but no info posted.

    Has anyone heard anything about this place? Possible opening dates?

    It’s not about latte art, or fancy pours. Latte artist?!?

    A guy from Illinois starts an internet cafe in Columbus with no prior specialty coffee experience…

    The name is kind of weak…

    So far I think the ceiling looks nice.

    I kind of dig the name actually, and the graphic seems kind of cool too. I’m not sure I get the whole “latte artistry” thing, but I’d probably check it out.

    Agreed.. the latte should taste right first… any art you stick on top is just window dressing if it doesn’t taste right..

    Is that in the Seneca? It’s pretty far east, but in this case you have CCAD across the street (not many coffeeshop options in the immediate vicinity) and the Seneca right there. It could work, we’ll just have to see how the coffee and atmosphere is.

    There’s quite a few offices around Broad & Grant too, so I imagine they could get some decent foottraffic during the workday.

    If anyone finds out an opening date, post it up. Looking forward to checking it out.

    This is in the Seneca, so it’s close to the Library too. I hope they’ll be open later at night…at least 10pm?

    When does it open? I work right across the corner – the view from my office is the Seneca. Finally, something besides Subway that is less than 2-3 long blocks away.

    Still not open, doesn’t seem to be much happening in there from when I looked through the window. Has anyone heard anything about this place?

    I emailed the owner/manager person two months ago and never heard back.
