After many delays, it looks like o kafés! coffeehouse will finally open in the Martin Biscuit Building at Pepper Place this weekend, assuming they pass a final Health Department inspection.
Owners Kirk Summers and Erin Isbell roast their coffee locally and sell it online and through local stores such as V. Richard's. If you go to Pepper Place Saturday Market, you've seen their popular booth selling hot and iced coffees.
To celebrate the coffee shop opening, the owners are holding a concert in the coffeehouse Sunday night, Aug. 24 at 7 p.m. Sally Barris from Nashville (www.myspace.com/sallybarris) will be playing and some local musicians will be joining in. A $10 donation is requested to defray the singer’s expenses.
"If we are officially open and operational, we will have food and drinks available for purchase," Kirk writes. "Regardless, feel free to bring your own alcoholic beverages."
