THE COFFEE BAR, located at 1615 S Foothill Dr. Suite G on Foothill Blvd. opened for business on Saturday, August 11 to large crowds. Conveniently located in Lamplighter Square at 1615 Foothill Blvd., THE COFFEE BAR serves up cocoa, cider, chai, Millcreek Roasters coffee, Italian sodas, juices and features breakfast pastries from Pierre's Country Bakery and free Wi-Fi. It's the perfect place to sit out the morning traffic on the way into the city. Offerings can also be packaged to go for those on the run.
In September Taqueria27 is expected to open at which point breakfast entrees will be available in THE COFFEE BAR in the mornings. For lunch and dinner or after work, diners can sip beverages while waiting for their taqueria table or they can order their taqueria cuisine brought into THE COFFEE BAR for more casual service. Patrons will be able to enjoy wine, beer, a Bloody Mary or Irish coffee on the western-facing patio overlooking the lights of Salt Lake City. All in all, it serves as a dynamic, energetic place for morning meetings, afternoon tete-e-tetes and leisurely evening chats.
“This is just phase one of our big September opening of Taqueria27 and Coffee Bar,” said chef and owner Todd Gardiner. “When people stop by for coffee, pastry, or Italian soda, they can get a sneak peek at the progress of our adjacent taqueria. We're so excited to introduce this new concept to Salt Lake. We are completing the build-out and massaging the menus of my unique interpretations of Latin street food with a modern flair, paired with an extensive selection of 100 percent agave tequilas.”
THE COFFEE BAR boasts a clean, contemporary look. Repurposed wood chairs and tables are offset by rusty orange and taupe walls offering a warm welcome. Sleek modern black leather sofas with chrome piping surround a cowhide rug named “Mocha” to complete the comfy vibe. Tin ceilings offset the mahogany wood floors, countertops sport reclaimed mahogany and walnut wood and the back wall features beautiful chalk art by Malia Denali.
