Building the House



From a What's Cookin' a few weeks back:

Hendrix alumni plan to revive the space on North Palm Street that formerly housed the Laughing Moon Cafe and Sufficient Grounds. Real-estate developer Josh Blevins and Nick Coffin are investing, with Coffin serving as managing partner. Nathan Miller, a recent graduate of the New England Culinary Institute, will serve as executive chef. Coffin said the aim is to fill three niches — coffee shop, breakfast joint and a quiet spot for beer and wine. There'll also be lunch and dinner offerings, ranging from soups and salads to burgers. Menus will revolve around local and seasonal produce.

Coffin said he plans to do quite a bit of remodeling, keeping the space “funky, but cleaner.” He hopes to open by June 1, but no later than June 15.

Since then, the restaurateurs have picked a name, designed a logo and started a Facebook page. Over the weekend, they posted their breakfast menu. Check it out after the jump. Looks good.
Other menus will be posted very soon. Keep in mind all items on the menu will be made in house using organic and, when at all possible, local ingredients. All menu offerings will be extemely affordable. Our breads will also be made in house and will be for sale at the restaurant.
