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?April 4, 2009 10:53 am at 10:53 am #265113
It’s not about latte art, or fancy pours. Latte artist?!?April 4, 2009 1:46 pm at 1:46 pm #265114
A guy from Illinois starts an internet cafe in Columbus with no prior specialty coffee experience…April 4, 2009 6:22 pm at 6:22 pm #265115
The name is kind of weak…
So far I think the ceiling looks nice.April 4, 2009 6:27 pm at 6:27 pm #265116
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.April 4, 2009 6:45 pm at 6:45 pm #265117

Agreed.. the latte should taste right first… any art you stick on top is just window dressing if it doesn’t taste right..April 4, 2009 7:20 pm at 7:20 pm #265118
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.April 4, 2009 11:35 pm at 11:35 pm #265119
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.April 5, 2009 12:03 am at 12:03 am #265120
Yay! New business downtown, looking forward to checking them out!April 5, 2009 7:28 pm at 7:28 pm #265121
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?April 9, 2009 6:07 pm at 6:07 pm #265122
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.July 24, 2009 4:08 pm at 4:08 pm #265123
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?July 25, 2009 1:37 am at 1:37 am #265124
I emailed the owner/manager person two months ago and never heard back.
