Palena Coffee Shop Open Today
The much-anticipated coffee bar sources its beans from local roaster M.E. Swing Co., and espresso drinks are crafted with a La Marzocco machine. Throughout the day, a selection of frittatas, pastries and breads will be available, but plans to offer lunch have been put on hold for now.
Pastries might include chocolate- or lemon-glazed donuts; cinnamon-sugar donut holes; and popovers made with the recipe Frank Ruta used during his time at the White House.
The renovated cafe seats 24 in winter but will expand with patio seating when the weather warms.
The coffee shop will be open from 7 AM-4 PM daily.
