The Coffee Shop Northeast to Expand


by Mason Sullivan

The Coffee Shop Northeast will celebrate its two-year anniversary on July 1. During its first two years, business has been good. One of their toughest challenges has been that, on occasion, there has not been enough seating when a large number of customers who wish to order beverages and food “for here.”

By the end of July, that problem will be remedied.

An expansion is underway that will more than double the shop’s square footage and increase its seating capacity to around 57 (It currently seats 27). That’s good news for customers who head to the neighborhood establishment with visions of enjoying their goodies in-house.
